Kansas 4-H Camp takes place at Rock Springs Ranch near Junction City, Kansas. 4-H Camp is a natural extension of the classroom.

Since 1946, thousands of Kansas 4-H youth have come to Rock Springs Ranch. They unplug, explore, play, and learn the kinds of lessons that can last a lifetime. Outside of the traditional learning environment, campers grow socially, emotionally, physically, and cognitively. Many make friends for life. It’s also just simple, pure FUN!

The values of 4-H are at the core of Rock Springs Ranch and they guide all of our programming. Rock Springs Ranch believes the lessons learned at 4-H Camp can create a foundation for success that will last far beyond their visit. Explore more about Rock Springs Ranch rockspringsranch.org.
