Join Ocean County 4‑H!

There are many ways for youth to join the fun with Ocean County 4‑H!
The most meaningful way to get involved is to join one of our 4‑H clubs, but youth can also participate in the 4‑H camps held during winter, spring and summer break.

The 4‑H year runs from September 1st to August 31st of the following calendar year. During the 4‑H year, 4‑H club members meet consistently with their club(s) to:

  1. Learn and socialize with friends
  2. Make progress on 4‑H projects
  3. Prepare for special events held on the local, state or national level
  4. Complete community service projects
  5. Develop public-speaking and leadership skills

The 4‑H year culminates at the Ocean County Fair when the entire 4‑H community comes together to showcase their achievements, make new friends and have fun!
