Rock Springs 4-H Camp

This page contains things relevant to Douglas County 4H Rock Springs Camp preparation/information.

When will 4-H camp happen in 2024?

Several camping sessions will be offered throughout the summer months. Two-night, three-night, and five-night sessions will be offered for youth ages 8-18. The camping schedule allows for 4-H’ers to register for any session of camp. Save the date! For 2024, Douglas County 4-H will be inviting our members to join us for the session hosted June 5-8, 2024.

What if June 5-8, 2024 doesn’t work for our summer schedule?

That’s the beauty of the open schedule. Youth are welcome to attend any session.

Who will serve as camp counselors?

Camp counselors will be paid Rock Springs Ranch staff who have completed extensive youth development training prior to the start of the camping season. Teens are now invited to participate in a camping experience tailored to their age range and leadership experience. We are NOT excluding teens from camp. We're just simply reframing the teen experience to provide even more options for these youth to have their own unique camp experience.

Will transportation be available?

Yes! Campers will be coming from all corners of the state to Kansas 4-H Camp. Upon camp enrollment, select an available bus option near you and ride with friends or other kids from your area!
