Are you looking for an activity that your child can be involved in that is fun, free and educational? Look no further than Richmond County 4-H! There are great opportunities for youth ages 5-18 to be involved in. Whether your child attends public school, private school or is homeschooled; whether they like animals, science, cooking or camping we have a program they would enjoy.

Cooking Clovers 4-H club will have their first meeting on September 19 at 6 p.m. at the 4-H office. Cooking clovers is a new club focused on all things related to food! Cooking, gardening, hunting, fishing, food safety, preserving and grilling will all be topics addressed during the year.

The club will be open to all enrolled 4-H members ages 9-18. If you are not currently enrolled, enrollment forms will be available on site the night of the meeting.

popcorn4H_24-H is also popping up one Friday night per month to host a “Movie Night” so that parents can have a few hours to themselves and kids can have fun with their friends. The next 4-H Movie Night is October 14 and is open to youth ages 5-12 to relax and have fun in a safe environment. Supervised by 4-H leaders and Senior 4-H members, your child will have a great time! The cost for movie night is $10 for the first child and $5 for each additional sibling. The fee covers dinner, drinks, snacks, games and movie. For each movie night, RSVP is required at 910-997-8255.

Richmond County Shooting Sports will also be kicking off their club meetings in October focusing on archery. Members ages 9-18 are welcome to attend and a parent is required to stay at the meeting. Meetings will be held at Millstone 4-H Camp in Ellerbe with a date to be announced soon. Any interested members should contact 910-997-8255 for more information about the club.

What was that? Oh, you like goats! Then the Richmond County Livestock Club is the right club for you. The livestock club meets on the first Tuesday of every month at 6:30 p.m. at the 4-H office with a few exceptions due to show dates and times. The livestock club’s current focus is showing market goats, but other animal interests are welcome.

The 4-H Eagles Homeschool group is also open to all youth ages 5-18. This group has chosen to focus on Science and Technology and over the course of the next six months will be completing experiments taught by 4-H members each time they meet. Meetings are typically held on the first Monday of the month at 2 p.m. at the 4-H Office. If you are interested in science, this group is ready to learn with you!

Don’t see a club you like? Start your own 4-H Club! All you need is 5 non-related members and an adult volunteer. 4-H can supply the educational materials, guidance and help get you on your way to learning and having fun.
