National 4-H Week

Each year during National 4-H Week, local and county 4-H clubs have the opportunity to showcase what they have gained from their membership in 4-H through activities and events at the local and county level.  4-H is a youth development program of Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service that teaches boys and girls to be productive, contributing members of society.

This year, Texas 4-H celebrates 105 years and annually has over 65,000 4-H members and volunteers enrolled.  In 2012, Bandera County had 367 4-H members and 106 volunteers involved in our program.  We have 7 clubs for 4-H members to select from.  They include clubs in Pipe Creek, Lakehills, Medina and Bandera and also include the Horse, Shotgun and Rifle project clubs.  Numerous hands-on activities and projects are available for youth to participate in.  Our most popular projects include photography, shooting sports, horse, foods and nutrition and livestock projects.

We are always looking to recruit new members and volunteers so if you know of a youngster interested in joining 4-H or would like to volunteer as an adult leader, please feel free to contact us at 830-796-7755 or visit our website at  A special thanks to the Bandera County Commissioners Court, local businesses and many individuals for recognizing and supporting National 4-H Week.
