Cloverbuds and Animal Activities - In Conclusion

Print Friendly

The over-arching priority for the Cloverbud program is first and foremost safety for Maine’s 5 to 8 year old members and secondly that these members receive programming that fits their stage of development. Maine’s Cloverbud program provides fun, participation, love of learning, the experience of success, an introduction to all of the 4-H curriculum areas, and a chance to develop on-going relationships with adults and older teens beyond the family. Volunteers and parents should keep firmly in mind that while animal activities are an important tool to help achieve these goals, they are just that, a tool, and as such must always be used to promote the key goals of the Cloverbud program.
