Burlingame 4-H

Our club would like to welcome any new members that have an interest in 4-H.  It is not mandatory to live on a farm or have an animal to belong to our group. We offer many types of projects for children of all ages and skills. Here are just a few examples: cooking, sewing, crocheting, gardening, electricity, woodworking, geology, photography, rabbits, lambs, beef, dairy, swine, horses, and poultry.

We do encourage parents to join their children at the meetings and events. A child will only get out of4-H what a parent is willing to help them achieve. This is definitely a family organization.

To join you must be 7 years old before January 1st and you can be in 4-H until the age of 19.
