4-h signups being set

Staff report

The Douglas County 4-H youth development program is currently accepting membership into the largest out-of-school youth organization in America.

4-H is a fun and exciting way for young people to explore unlimited educational and recreational activities with their friends, family, volunteer 4-H teachers and cooperative extension staff. Youths may participate in 4-H in many ways -through organized 4-H programs, 4-H summer camps or in self-determined projects. There are no dues or fees required to join 4-H.

4-H is an adventure while learning. Through 4-H participation, youths who are primarily between the ages of 9-19 acquire knowledge, develop life skills and increase their confidence level and self-esteem, all the while making new friends.

The knowledge and skills learned can open the door to a lifetime of personal growth. A wide range of projects and activities are now available for young people interested in joining the “Douglas County 4-H Youth Team.”

This year’s 4-H program offers the following clubs and/or activities for youths and their families: sheep, dog, horse, swine, dog obedience and shooting sports, just to name a few. Also available are seasonal activities such as hunter education, kite flying, 4-H summer camp, ranger camp, leadership training, county, area and state fairs, state 4-H exposition, 4-H family Christmas caroling and hayride, and a variety of many more events and activities.

If you are interested in becoming a member of this year’s Douglas County 4-H Youth Team, contact the Douglas County Cooperative Extension office of Gardnerville by calling 782-9960 or stopping in the office at 1329 Waterloo across from Lampe Park.
