Cloverbud Program

The Cloverbud program is designed for youth ages 5-7 as of September 1 of the current year. Cloverbuds participate in hands-on learning activities to explore: Aerospace, Arts & Crafts, Caring for My Pet, Caring for My Room, Exploring Farm Animals, Kids In the Kitchen, Legos, Vegetable Gardening and Watching My Flowers Grow. Most Cloverbud projects are leader-guided and all come with a member booklet. The projects require minimal reading and writing skills.

Cloverbuds may participate in the County Fair and, in fact, have their own special designated day and time at the Fairgrounds. Cloverbuds may select projects from nine (9) areas to show at the Fair!
