Welcome to Carleton County!
Carleton County is a very busy county! New volunteers and new members are always welcome. Our county always thinks outside of the box and introduces many new clubs.
“What does a 4-H Club in Carleton County look like?”
Most clubs consist of at least 6 meetings, typically on evenings or weekends, running between April and September – with occasional clubs running between fall and spring. The club is concluded with an Achievement Program for the 4-H’ers to show off what they learned in the club, often held at a local fair.
Usual clubs running in Carleton include dairy, beef, sheep, field crops and a rotating schedule of life skills clubs (recent clubs include Pasta, Gardening and Working with Wool, among others).
It is important to note that not all clubs are offered in multiple locations and may not be available in your immediate area. The Cloverbud program is for youth aged 6 to 8 years and the more advanced 4-H program is for 9 to 21 years of age – as of January 1 of the current year.
Club topics are determined by the leaders and are typically posted on the Carleton County 4-H Facebook page.
Our commitment is to engage our young people to reach their fullest potential.
Kids and teens complete projects in areas like lifeskills, science, agriculture and more, in a positive environment where they receive guidance from leaders and mentors. They are encouraged to take on proactive leadership roles.
Our members come from urban neighbourhoods, suburban schoolyards and rural farming communities, 4-H Ontario programs are inclusive. We believe in our youth and every child can contribute to our world.
