Meets on the second Thursday of September and the first Thursday of each month from October through June. There are no Club meetings in July or August. The September meeting is held on the second Thursday since the first Thursday is close to the Labor Day weekend.

Description: The Soaring Eagles 4-H Club is designed for homeschool families who prefer to meet during the day and connect with other homeschoolers.

The Soaring Eagles 4-H Club is unique in that members come from four different counties in Minnesota and one county in Wisconsin, but are a part of the Chisago-County 4-H program.

The goal of the Soaring Eagles 4-H Club is the same as that of the 4-H program in general: long-term youth development which encourages participants to learn life skills that will help them grow into healthy and productive citizens.

Soaring Eagles 4-H Club aims to help youth:
 → Develop a zest and skill for life-long learning.
 → Acquire confidence and a positive attitude toward self.
 → Develop leadership, citizenship, and teamwork skills.
 → Explore possible vocations and careers.
 → Learn to manage time wisely and set priorities.
 → Interact with adults who serve as role models.

Each 4-H meeting has a hands-on project and/or guest speaker; community service activity; demonstration by a 4-H youth; game; business meeting; and snack.

Target age range: Children who are 5–19 years old may participate in either the Cloverbud program (5–7 year olds) or regular 4-H program (8–19 year old youth and teens). Current members in this club are between 5 and 15 years old.

Cost per child/student: Youth may sample a meeting at no cost to make a decision about whether they want to become a member. Thereafter, youth complete a membership form and pay yearly membership dues that cover county and club fees. The county dues are $25 per child with a $50 cap per family. Club dues will be between $25-35 per child. (Scholarships for the county dues are available for those with financial challenges. There is no scholarship program for club dues.)
