Clubs and Activities
Specialty Clubs are a great way for you to get involved in the Walton County 4-H program.

As a parent or volunteer, we are always looking for help with our programming, if you are interested in helping with a club or activity please contact the office, we would love to hear from you! And students, remember that if you don't see anything you are interested in, LET US KNOW, we want to tailor our program to as many of our members' interests and needs as possible. Who knows, you might just get the chance to be the founding student of a new club!
