Catching Up with the Clover- Colleton County Summer 2023

Dawn Stuckey, 4-H Youth Development Agent, Colleton/Hampton Counties

Clubs have taken a break this summer, but there have been plenty of things going on with Colleton 4-H. Camps, programs, horse shows, and garden projects have been in full swing.

Colleton County 4-H Club Blue Ribbon Riders competed in the State Horse Show in June. This was the first-time club members participated in the State Horse Show, and five members qualified to advance to the regional show being held in August. Addison Hiers, Harper Garcia, Madeline Leeman, Madison Richards, and Taylor Lacey scored high enough in their classes to move on.  Members took full advantage of the offerings and participated in the stall decoration contest, costume contest, and a full range of horsemanship classes. Congratulations to Club Leader Madeline Ingalls and her volunteers for helping the girls realize their goals.

Colleton 4-H also offered a summer camp for older students to learn valuable life skills. Students learned how to prepare healthy meals that were cost-effective and easy to prepare, create a budget, do laundry, repair buttons and tears in clothing, write thank you notes, address envelopes, and do some basic sewing.

If you are interested in participating in Colleton 4-H this year, please contact Dawn Stuckey, 4-H Agent at or call 843-549-2595.  A full listing of clubs will be shared in September.
