Youth - 5-8 Years Old

What is a Cloverbud?

Cloverbud is a term used to identify 4-H members who are 5 through 8 years old. Any Maine youth between the ages of 5 and 8 years old may join the 4-H program.

Participation, safety, personal development, learning, and fun in a cooperative, non-competitive setting are the priorities of the Cloverbud program. Cloverbuds experience programs that are developmentally appropriate, activity-oriented, involve cooperative learning, and are focused on learning activity skills and life skills through a wide variety of topic areas. Participation in activities is available at the club, county, and state level.
