How to Register?

The first step to participating in our 4-H program is to create a 4-H Online profile. Once you have created a profile, login and click ‘events’ on the left-hand side of your screen and then you will see all of our Johnston County 4-H Summer Fun programs listed under events and you will be able to register for the programs you would like to participate in. This is not the only step in order to register your child for 4-H Summer Fun, see below for more information.

How to Pay?

This summer we will only accept payments by card or check. Once you have registered for 4-H Summer Fun in 4-H Online you will then be sent a link to Eventbrite to pay for the classes you have signed up for.

*Since we are using two separate systems for registrations please make sure that the programs that you sign-up for in 4-H Online are the same programs that you register for in Eventbrite. We will not issue you a refund unless a program is canceled. There is also a $25 fee for returned checks.
