The Chaffee County Extension office provides assistance and programs for citizens in five main areas: Agriculture, Horticulture, Family and Consumer Science, Natural Resources and 4-H Youth Programs.

Project List   arrow

4-H offers a myriad of projects to appeal to youth regardless of their interests. We have something for everyone! Each 4-H member ages 8-18 can enroll in one or more projects that are offered by their club and taught by their volunteer leader. A project involves hands-on learning in a new skill over a period of several weeks or months. Most projects have a 4-H manual for reference and E-record to keep a journal of what was learned.

Interested in learning more about what projects are offered through 4-H? For the official Colorado 4-H project list, click the button below.

To purchase your manual, contact the Chaffee County Extension Office and include the following information:

  • Your name and 4-H member’s name.
  • 4-H member’s age.
  • Project the 4-H member is enrolled or interested in.

All Cloverbuds ages 5-7 must ONLY enroll in the Cloverbud project, which explores several 4-H topics and is non-competitive.

Check out your project website to learn more, stay up to date on important project dates, and announcements.

Record & E-record Books:

4-H members are required to complete a record book for every project they are enrolled in. They are divided into 6 categories: companion animal, dog, food and consumer science (FCS), general and natural resources (GNR), horse, and livestock. They are further divided by age: juniors (ages 8-10), intermediates (ages 11-13), and seniors (ages 14-18).
