4-H Programs

School Enrichment Programs

Walton County 4-H works with the community and local schools to provide educational experiences and programming to youth across the county. Florida 4-H has partnered with Florida Power and Light to provide the Florida 4-H Public Speaking School Enrichment program for youth in 4th, 5th and 6th grade. This county contest helps equip youth with using their voices and educating themselves on a variety of topics and can be implemented in schools by connecting with your 4-H Agent and getting the necessary resources to support a successful program.

Other School Enrichment programs that can be requested include:

  • Embrology- hatching and learning about poultry
  • Financial Literacy- learning about money management
  • Character Education- developing positive mindsets and skills
  • Mindfulness- learning about self-care and helping others

If there is a skill or program that you are interested in implementing into your classrooms, please reach out! Other programs than the above listed may be requested and offered as resources are available.

Community Clubs

4-H community clubs have a variety of focuses ranging from STEM Education, environmental education, art and much more. Clubs are led by two adult volunteers, whom we have background screened and trained before serving. Most clubs meet monthly (except in the summer), with some clubs meeting more regularly, depending on the type of club. Youth have the opportunity to do community service projects, go on field trips, raise money for camps and learn a variety of life-skills. Current clubs are: Walton County 4-H Clubs

Day Camps

Traditionally, community and in-school clubs do not meet in the summertime, so we host day camps! These camps normally last for one to three consecutive days and have specific themes or educational component's Previous themes have included forensic science, food preservation and cooking, arts & crafts, robotics and more. For day camps, youth do not have to be current 4-H members, but they will still need to enroll and sign up as a program participant. These camps normally have a cost associated with them; therefore, we provide a number of camp scholarship for those who may need them. For information on upcoming camps and scholarship requests, please contact the Extension Office, or check our Facebook Page, Walton County 4-H Facebook.
