The CSU Extension in Gilpin County helps mountain residents improve their quality of life by offering a website, classes and programs that provide unbiased, research-based information on forestry, wildfire, wildlife, mountain gardening, noxious weeds and many other issues. Through our 4-H programs, we help youth develop life skills through leadership opportunities.

4-H: Club   arrow

Gilpin County has 1 traditional 4-H club that supports a variety of projects including horse, shooting sports, dogs, robotics and more. Please contact the Gilpin Archwood club for more details.

Additionally, Gilpin County partners with Jefferson County 4-H so that we can both have the advantages of larger membership and more opportunities — please go to their website for the latest information and updates:

4-H is open to enrollment for members ages 8 through 18.

Gilpin Archwood 4-H Club would like to invite you to join us! If you have questions please email us at .

Organizational Leader

Krystal Meyer –

Krystal is a long time resident of Gilpin County, and in her youth was a part of the Gilpin 4-H club where her main project was Horse. Although horse projects were her main focus as a youth, she hopes to encourage the local youth to look at all the amazing projects that 4-H has to offer and understand that you don’t have to have an animal to be a part of 4-H.
