Nevada 4-H & 4-H Camp History
In the late 1890's and into the early 1900's, 4-H programs began throughout the country in response to young people and their need for a better agricultural education. As one of the first organizations that focused on providing youth with hands-on learning opportunities, 4-H has a rich history of helping young people gain skills that they use throughout their lives. In 4-H, young people have fun, explore, discover and learn. 4-H'ers make new friends, develop life skills, become leaders and change their communities.
