4-H Cloverbud Clubs are for younger children age 5 to 7. During club meetings, youth work as a group on projects perfect for their age. Cloverbud clubs can be independent clubs or they may meet at the same time as a 4-H multi-project club. Most Cloverbud activities are leader guided and do not use member books. Enrollment is easy. Simply select “Cloverbud” as your project.
