4-H Camp Summer 2021 Dates

Submitted by Amy Sollock

After what felt like a very odd summer 2020 4-H season without camp, I am pleased to announce that we have dates scheduled for summer 2021!  Camp Chair meeting will take place at Rock Springs Ranch on Tuesday, November 10. Our hope is to meet in person on-site, but will move to virtual if needed.

The 4-H Camping Task Force has been hard at work, as well as leadership at both the Kansas 4-H Foundation and Rock Springs, preparing for what 4-H camp will look like in 2022. A centralized camp model, with extended 6-day sessions, increased program offerings, open enrollment and improved healthcare, will ensure that a safe and high quality 4-H camping experience is offered to Kansas youth for years to come. 4-H camp in 2021 will begin to see new health protocols, as well as some improved health facilities, expedited by the Covid-19 pandemic. Logistics and details will continue to be shared as they are finalized.

Camp dates for 2021 are as follows:

  • Fantastic Camp: June 6-9 (no counselors early arrival)
  • Great Northwest Counselors: June 8-9
    Great Northwest Camp: June 9-12
  • Pioneer Trails Counselors: June 11-12
    Pioneer Trails Camp: June 12-15
  • Sunny Hills Counselors: June 14-15
    Sunny Hills Camp: June 15-18
  • Purple Power Pack Counselors: June 17-18
    Purple Power Pack Camp: June 18-21
  • Heart of Kansas Counselors: June 20-21
    Heart of Kansas Camp: June 21-24
  • Oz-some Counselors: June 23-24
    Oz-some Camp: June 24-27
  • Campference Counselors: June 26-27
    Campference: June 27-30
