I'm just curious to know since there have been a few things I did.

More of a quick question type thing, so thanks in advance!

Sure they count! If you had a meaningful experience, then by all means talk about it when the time comes. Maybe it even leads to things you do in the future.

I'd add a couple caveats to the previous posts.

If it gives you some meaningful experience or insight that you can provide depth and context for in your personal statement or interviews, it counts.

If it was something short term (like a summer of ED volunteering folding bedsheets) that you're going to use to pad your AMCAS activities section, that's questionable unless you continue it into college.

If you continued the activity after the first day of college, it counts. Otherwise, I would be weary. Screeners don't appreciate people adding things just for the sake of having one more activity (not that I think that was you intent).
