Kansas 4-H camps through the years

Slideshow: Kansas 4-H camps have changed in 75 years, but Rock Springs Ranch stays constant.

Rock Springs Ranch 4-H Center near Junction City, Kan., has been a fixture for 75 seasons of 4-H campers. Then, as today, it’s been an oasis of adventure, learning and memory-making for generations of campers.

The Kansas 4-H Foundation has plans for celebrating the 75th anniversary of the camp this summer. Here are a few of the historic photos foundation members have unearthed during their preparations.

Rock Springs Ranch will reopen for camp this year following its closure in 2020 from the pandemic. In 2022, changes to camp programming will be implemented that allow for camp to be more inclusive and safer for youth.
