What is a project 4-H Club?

In a Project Club, members meet regularly to learn about a special area of interest. Examples of project clubs in Chaffee County include: horse and shooting sports. Project clubs meet in addition to a member’s home club (community club).  Any member wanting to participate in these specialized project clubs must also participate in the community club. To join the shooting sports or horse project club contact our office!
