 2019 4-H Campference

"LeaderSHIP on the High Seas"
2019 Campference

4-H Campference will be held June 23-26 at Rock Springs 4-H Center.  Campference is an event for "betweenagers," 12-14 (before Jan 1, 2019) year old youth, who are ready to take 4-H to the next level.  The Kansas 4-H Youth Leadership Council combines the best aspects of a camp and a conference into an event for middle school youth who still want the ‘fun’ of 4-H camp, but who also want to challenge themselves to develop critical skills so that they can set themselves up for success in the future.  Registration is closed.  

Go to the Kansas 4-H Youth Development page for Campference dress code, menus, souvenir/snack prices and more.
