About Hoppin’ N’ Trottin’

The Hoppin’ N’ Trottin’ 4-H Club, founded in 2010, boasts a membership of over 90 members in the Swanton area of Fulton County. Our members are engaged in a wide range of projects, such as horses, rabbits, steers, poultry, hogs, goats, dog training, and shooting sports, among others.

We are an active group and can often be found participating in various activities, such as shooting at Cleland’s Outdoor World or Fulton County Sportsmen Club, horse riding at Harry Hughes, attending 4-H camps, showcasing our horse, rabbit, and other projects at the Ohio State Fair, and enjoying water fights, cookouts, parades, and shooting during the summer months.

However, the most exciting time for our club is undoubtedly during the Fulton County Fair, which we eagerly anticipate every year.


Giving Back

At Hoppin’ N’ Trottin’ 4-H Club, community service is a top priority, and we take pride in giving back to our local community through various service projects. As a result, we have received both the Honor Club Award and Community Service Club Award, recognizing our commitment to service.

Our older members are active in leadership roles such as the junior fair board, camp counselors, and junior fair royalty. They are role models to our younger members, providing guidance and inspiration to help them achieve their goals.

We believe in fostering a positive and supportive environment, and our older members serve as excellent mentors to our younger members. With their guidance, our younger members are able to develop strong skills and leadership qualities as they pursue their projects.

Age Guidelines

If you are between 8 (and in the third grade) and 18 and seeking an exciting and fulfilling activity that offers opportunities to make new friends, engage with your community, learn new skills, and have fun, we warmly invite you to join our club.

Cloverbud Program

Hoppin’ N’ Trottin’ also has a Cloverbud Program specifically designed for young children between the ages of 5 (in kindergarten) and 8 (in the third grade). This program is an excellent way to introduce young children to the 4-H community and its values, providing them with a safe and welcoming space to learn, grow, and explore.
