RSR Is At The Center of Fun!
The programs and activities at 4-H Camp at Rock Springs are built around our three Centers of Excellence and the values of 4-H. We combine all the fun of traditional summer camp with foundational learning to create generations of engaged citizens.
Centers of Excellence
At Rock Springs Ranch we have developed three programmatic Centers of Excellence to spark learning and personal growth for 4-H groups, other youth and young adult organizations across the state, region and country. We believe the lessons learned here can create a foundation for success that will last far beyond their visit.
The Programs and Activities at RSR are created to incorporate one or more of these Centers while at the same time encouraging a fun and relaxed learning environment.
Leadership is more than simply authority. It means knowing how to listen, how to encourage the gifts in others, how to earn respect and stay true to yourself.
Conservation means being acutely aware of how our natural resources benefit humankind while at the same time nurturing and protecting those resources so they may continue to serve.
Rock Springs Teen Programming NEW!
4-H Teen Camp
Rising High Schoolers, ages 14-17, provides a camp experience to keep teens engaged at this critical time in their lives, while mastering skills at an even deeper level in the areas of Leadership, Conservation and Sportsmanship with a focus on shooting sports, Equine, Aquatics, Paddle Sports and Crafts. The High Ropes Course will become a part of their programming and will be an exciting part of their camp experience.
This is a teen leadership camp experience for 15 and 16-year old’s, rising 11th Graders. LEAD stands for Leadership, Engage, Act and Discover. Campers will have the opportunity to enjoy many parts of the RSR experience. Time will be split between leadership, community development programming and a service project. There will also be lots of time to just relax, make new friends and enjoy other camp activities.
Teens ages 16 to 17-year, especially rising 12th Graders, come to camp as part of our new Counselor in Training (CIT) Camp. They will be given responsibility over a group of younger campers from breakfast to bedtime. These teens will receive camper care training and counselor experience, but they will also have “camp” time with their peers built into each day. This is an opportunity to provide leadership to younger campers while also having their own community and camp experiences, all with the mentorship and supervision of our youth development staff.
