- Enroll online. There is a $50 enrollment fee (reduced fees are available based on eligibility). For those enrolling in more than eight projects, the enrollment fee is higher.
You may join 4-H at any time, but there are important enrollment dates in order to be eligible to enter the Larimer County Fair:
- Enrollment for returning members are due by February 1st
- Enrollment for new members are due by March 15th
How to select a club
The first step to joining the 4-H program is selecting a local club. Consider the following when selecting a club to join:
- What is the location of the club? What time and day of the week does it meet?
- Does the club have a project leader in the area you are interested?
- Are you familiar with the club organizational leader and the expectations of the club?
How to select a 4-H project
Look through the many projects Larimer County offers. You may choose one or more projects. Projects are fun to do alone and/or with your friends. Think about:
- An interest you’d like to explore
- A hobby you’d like to learn more about
- A topic of interest shared by you and your family
- Something that is fun for you
