4-H prepares young people to step up to the challenges in their community and the world.
Kids can join a 4-H club, go to camp, or take part in our county fair. There
are lots of exciting activities– from horses to fishing, from cooking and nutrition to
science, from bunnies to shooting sports.
In addition to clubs, 4-H partakes in partnership activities with various schools and other youth-serving organizations in the area, including Ocean Academy, the Nature Center of Cape May and Cape May County Youth Services.
Rutgers University’s NJ Agriculture Experiment Station and our County Board of Chosen Freeholders are partners in making the 4-H Program of Cape May County a valuable contribution to our county’s youth.
