Membership dues

In general, Kentucky 4-H clubs/groups do not have membership dues.  4-H activities may involve pay-as-you-go fees for participation in specific learning activities.  The lack of membership dues should not imply that participation is always free.  Efforts are often made locally to raise private funds to offset some of registration fees for youth whose family cannot afford the expense.


How to Join

Joining is easy! Stop by the Extension Office to pick up an enrollment form. Or download the form here.

Enrollment has to be renewed every year!  Please turn in a new form every September to stay in 4-H. 

Participation Options 

 Here are some ways youth can participate.

  • Organized Club--an organized group of youth who meet throughout the year and elect officers.  There are three types of 4-H clubs  in Hart County--a) "community clubs" which meet at times when kids are not in school; b) "in-school clubs" which meet during school hours; c) clubs which meet during after-school child care. Check out our clubs here
  • Special Interest/Short Term programs/Projects--group of youth who participate in a series of learning experiences on a topic of special interest to them such as a sewing group or robotics group.  The group may meet several times but perhaps not throughout the year. Check out special interest projects here 
  • Camp--group of youth participate in overnight or day camp. More information about 4-H Summer Camp can be found here
  • School Enrichment--classrooms of youth who participate in 4-H as part of the school curriculum.
  • Individual Study--individual youth who participate in 4-H as a family but do not affiliate with a 4-H club/group.
