Learn More About 4-H

What is 4-H
4-H is an Educational Youth Program focusing on the needs, interests and concerns of young people. Our aim is to help Camden youth gain a positive self-concept, develop social skills and decision-making abilities, and learn subject knowledge needed for a productive life. 4-H members develop leadership and citizenship skills through individual project work, group activities, community service and school meetings. We are the youth division of the University of Georgia Cooperative Extension. 4-H began as corn and tomato clubs, but has evolved to become the largest youth organization in the world

Who Is Eligible?
Any youth ages 9-19 may join 4-H. However, we do have some programs to include younger children

When are 4-H Meetings?
We meet with the 5th grade 4-H'ers once a month in the classroom at each of the nine elementary schools. We meet with the two middle schools after school and with the high school in the evening.

How Much Does it COST?
There is no charge to join 4-H. Some optional activities may have a small charge
