Gilmer County 4-H

By far, 4-H is the most known and visible Extension development program, best known for its 4-H Clubs and summer 4-H Camps, but Extension also offers literacy and adult volunteer leadership programming related to 4-H and youth development.

In Gilmer County, there are seven community 4-H clubs. These clubs meet once a month for their regular meetings and participate in other activities, fund raisers, and community service projects.

To learn more about each of our clubs, contact the WVU Extension Office at 304-462-7061.
