Rock Springs Ranch Camp Programming
We have grouped our campers according to rising grade level (the grade they will enter after summer). The Programs and Activities at RSR are specific to each group and incorporate one or more of the Centers of Excellence while at the same time encouraging a fun and relaxed learning environment. View a sample schedule and overview of some activities.
For all camp sessions, we offer a voluntary three-tiered pricing model based on the needs of our families. This program is completely confidential and in no way affects the quality of the camp experience. Price selection is done strictly on an honor system. If you can afford to pay the full fee (Tier 1), please do so. If you cannot, simply select the price which is right for your family’s circumstances. You’ll be given the option to choose your rate during the registration process.*
Tier 1 represents the actual cost of camp operations, including long-term wear, tear and depreciation. If you are able to pay this rate, please do so.
Tier 2 reflects the basic cost of attending camp including food, staff, program supplies and limited maintenance expenses.
Tier 3 is a subsidized rate, funded by donations to the greatest extent possible, and provided for families whose children would not otherwise be able to attend camp.
We recognize that even with tier pricing camp may still be financially difficult for some families. If your family needs additional assistance in order to attend camp please complete this Campership Application. Your family will be informed of their award by email within 5 business days. Any subsequent financial assistance will be applied later in your account and therefore are not reflected in the fees below. Thank you to our donors who help make tier-pricing and additional campership funding possible!
For additional questions about registration or financial assistance please contact us at (785) 257-3221.

We Have All the Answers to Your Camp Questions!
Ages 8-10 (Rising 3rd-5th graders)
Our youngest campers will work on gaining their independence, making new friends and discovering the larger world around them. While at camp they will enjoy archery, swimming, intro to horses, BBs, corcls, our giant swing and many more fun activities! This group will also have the highest staff to camper ratios.
Ages 11-13 (Rising 6th-8th graders)
This group has greater access to activities and will spend time with more campers in their age group and work on skills development. Activities include aerial archery, swimming, horses, rifles, canoes, climbing wall and more!
Ages 14-17 (Rising 9th-12th graders)
The oldest group in our “traditional” camp. Adventurers spend most of their time at activities they choose along with other campers in their group. Activities are at the top tier of RSR offerings including 3D archery, swimming, horses, trap shooting, kayaks, high ropes
Ages 14-16 (Rising HS sophomores & juniors)
This immersive experience empowers youth to find their voice and transition into leaders ready to serve their communities. Teens participate in camp activities and challenges while also learning leadership development and civic engagement skills. During the week teens bond and find a sense of belonging through teambuilding, leadership skill development, and generosity.
Ages 16-17 (Rising HS seniors)
Teens ages 16 to 17-year, especially rising 12th graders, come to camp as part of our Counselors 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.
The CIT program is a fun and wonderful way to explore what it means to be a beginning leader and a mentor and is a good fit for young people who may want to explore a career in education, early childhood care or other related fields. The program also covers important skills such as learning how to give and receive feedback, set and achieve goals, resolve conflict, plan and lead activities and build confidence. Time in this program also looks good on college applications.
Being a CIT 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.
