The 4-H year began on September 1!! Children and teens from all over the country will be filling out their new membership forms and showing excitement to re-unite with their 4-H club members. In Pickens County, SC the 4-H members are no different. After a summer of 4-H camp, 4-H State Congress and short courses like baking science and 4-H20 daycamp, they are looking forward to participating in their 4-H club. 4-H is a nationwide youth development program for boys and girls ages 5-19.
Starting in September, Pickens County 4-H will have two new 4-H clubs along with clubs already in existence. Parents should contact the volunteer club leader for more information about each club. All volunteers have a background check, reference check and trainings before they are certified as a club leader. South Carolina 4-H programs fall under the Clemson Extension Service housed at Clemson University.
