Teller County 4-H Enrollment

Teller County 4-H enrollment occurs between October 1 and January 31 each year. We have over 100 Projects youth can learn about. Below are the steps to entering your child(ren) into 4-H. Everything is done online and will likely take 20-30 minutes per child this year and next year, five minutes since all your data will already be in the system.

One of the first things you’ll need to determine is which primary club you want to belong to, which is often based on location and whether the meeting time fits your family schedule. Woodland Park Pathfinders is located in Woodland Park, Rocky Mountain and Shooting Sports in Divide, Mountain Valley in Florissant, and Hilltop in Cripple Creek.

Once they choose a “club” they will be prompted to select projects. They can take as many as they want, but the projects meetings are held outside the club environment, typically at the project leader’s home or a location conducive to learning the skills required for the project. We suggest focusing on only one or two projects the first year so the families can learn all the nuances and opportunities within the 4-H program.
