4-H is a fun hands on learning experience in the program ares of leadership, civic engagement, communication, art, healthy living, and STEM open to all youth grades 4-12. The 4-H year runs from Sept. 1-Aug. 31. STEM stands for Science, Technology, Engineer, and Math. Nichol primarily workswith the Maple Valley Agriculturalists.
4-H youth work together with adult volunteers such as parents and grandparents to learn various skills and how to interact with their community. These activities include summer camps where 4-Her’s learn everything from cooking to collecting butterflies. Amajor showcase for 4-Her’s is the BV County Fair. Here youth can participate in showing livestock and can exhibit their craft items. There is also a program called “Clover Kids” for children K-3rd grade. Its a conty club which meets once a week.
