Final Two Virtual Special Interest (SPIN) Clubs Kick Off in Mid-April

The final spring virtual 4-H Special Interest (SPIN) clubs will start in mid-April in order to wrap up in May prior to our summer 4-H programs. These virtual 4-H SPIN clubs will focus on different topic areas and will last between four to six sessions. Do not hesitate to register.  Many of the SPIN clubs have filled quickly!

These 4-H SPIN clubs are open to 4-H members. Be sure to read each club description to determine which age groups are invited to participate. Each club is a little different.  Some clubs are designed to help 4-H members with their project work, but not all of them.  All youth are welcome to join a SPIN club to learn, no matter their project area!

Some of the 4-H SPIN clubs are free to participants while other clubs do have a small fee.  The clubs with fees will be providing a club kit of supplies for the kids to engage in hands-on activities at home.

How Do I Sign Up?

Choose a topic of interest to you, then register online through ZSuite. To register for a SPIN Club go to 4h.zsuite.org and enroll in 4-H with your county. Then select the “event” option to choose the topic.
