The Kansas 4-H Youth Leadership Council is excited to plan and host 4-H Campference!!! This event is focused on "betweenagers," youth ages 12-14, and will be held June 27-30, 2017 at Rock Springs 4-H Center.

Participants will experience the feel of a conference, while enjoying the "camp" activities Rock Springs 4-H Center has to offer. Campference will feature workshops about opportunities in the 4-H program, becoming a leader and activities to energize youth while learning healthy living skills and how to better interact with others. Participants will meet other youth from around the state of Kansas.

Last year’s event was terrific and those that attended highly recommend that you consider it too!

If you are interested in being part of Campference, online registration will be open late-March. Space will be limited, and filled on a first come first serve basis. In 2015 and 2016 Campference was full before the deadline, with a waiting list. After online registration fees must be in the local Extension Office by May 15, 2017.

Campference is being sponsored by Farm Credit Associations of Kansas and the Kansas 4-H Youth Leadership Council.



This camp also requires a $10 transportation fee.
