Teller County 4-H
Mark Platten / 4-H Coordinator
Teller County currently hosts six
traditional 4-H clubs in Woodland Park, Divide, Lake George,
Victor and a new club beginning this year in Cripple Creek.
For young people ages 5-7, we offer “Cloverbuds” programs
at Gateway and Summit Elementary schools as well as Lake
George Charter School.
In addition to more traditional
projects of livestock and family consumer sciences, 4-H
places an emphasis on the STEM projects such as model
rockets, robotics - using Lego MIndstorms, outdoor
adventures, computer literacy, video production, as well as
visual arts such as graphic design, painting, drawing,
photography, and sculpture.
Parents and grandparents are
encouraged to become volunteer leaders that work with the
youth in the 4-H club and project setting. You do not need
to be an expert, just willing to learn, take the 4-H
Volunteer Training and complete a mandatory background
4-H is a non-profit, educational program which is open
to all youth ages 5-19 without discrimination.
