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 4H 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 of 8 and 18.

Gilpin Archwood 4H Club would like to congratulate all of the contestants for a job well done! We hope that everyone had a wonderful season and to see you again next year. If you would like to purchase a Cody & Shelby Memorial series t-shirt please email us at .

Organizational Leader

Krystal Meyer –

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