What Type of Club Fits You?
There are 5 community clubs in Adams County. A community club is a club located in or near your area that meets usually in the evening once a month and offers self-chosen projects. Near to 4-H Fair time, the club will breakdown into “project” groups that will meet with the project leader to complete their projects to be displayed at 4-H Fair, held during the South Mountain Fair in August.
There are 9 animal clubs in Adams county. A 4-H animal club is a club that focuses solely on one specific animal instead of projects. Some of these clubs are “market” animal clubs. This means that the animal is raised, then at the 4-H Livestock Show and Sale, the member “shows” their animal to a judge for a placing, animals are then sold at an auction later in the week. Other animal clubs do not end their year with a sale. These clubs focus on learning about the characteristics, health, and caring of the animal.
There are 7 specialty clubs in Adams County. A 4-H “Specialty” club is a club that focuses on learning one project or skill. Some of these clubs are “countywide”, meaning there is only one club in Adams County for that particular project or skill.
