Established in 2010, the Hoppin' N' Trottin' 4-H Club is a club of over 70 members in the Swanton area of Fulton County. We have kids doing a variety of projects including horses, rabbits, shooting sports and others. We are a busy group and you will often see us shooting at Cleland's Outdoor World or Fulton County Sportsmen Club, riding horses at Harry Hughes, going to 4-H camps, taking horse, rabbit and other projects to the Ohio State Fair and enjoying water fights, cookouts, parades and shooting in the summertime. Of course the best time of year for our club is during the greatest fair of all, the Fulton County Fair!

4-H Shooting Sports - Learn By Doing Shooting sports is a very popular activity for our group. Our advisors are trained and certified through the 4-H program to teach rifle, shotgun. pistol, muzzleloader, archery and hunting/wildlife. We provide all guns, ammunition and bows and arrows for the kids through support from the Friends of NRA. It is a wonderful way for our members to learn respect for the sport and the firearms, safety and marksmanship. Each year we take a group of our older members to the National 4-H Shooting Invitational in Grand Island, Nebraska, to represent the state of Ohio in national competition.

We focus a lot on giving back to our community performing many community service projects. We  are Honor Club Award and Community Service Club Award recipients.

Many of our older members are members of the junior fair board, camp counselors and junior fair royalty and they are all wonderful leaders in our club. Our younger members have strong positive role models helping to guide them in their projects.

If you are between the ages of 8 (and in the third grade) and 18 and looking for an exciting activity to make friends, get involved in your community, learn a lot and have fun, please think about joining us. The enrollment deadline to take a project for fair is April 1st, but we always welcome new members.

Please feel free to contact us for more information about our club or about the 4-H program!
