This exciting addition to 4-H Ontario is a hands-on, activity-based program that covers a wide variety of topics, including agriculture, food, crafts, life skills, environment and science.

By participating in the Cloverbud Program, participants are able to get a taste for the topics covered in 4-H Projects while developing an understanding of 4-H values.

We offer three years’ worth of programming to encourage our youth to return again and again!
