Post Rock District

Rock Springs 4-H Center

4-H Camp takes place at Rock Springs 4-H Center near Junction City, Kansas. 4-H Camp is a natural extension of the classroom. Research indicates that by participating in strategically planned, structured summer experiences, children reduce summer learning loss. Rock Springs challenges children, keeps them engaged, develops creativity and their talents, and expands their horizons. Explore more about Rock Springs 4-H Center at rocksprings.net
