RSR 75th Badge

For over 75 years, Rock Springs Ranch has been host to generations of campers, families and anyone seeking a retreat in one of the most beautiful areas of the country. We are both a Retreat/Conference as well as a fun, exciting Summer Camp! Every year we welcome thousands of young people from across Kansas (and even Missouri) for 4-H based summer programs. But our campers don’t have to belong to 4-H to come to RSR, everyone is welcome!

Nestled in the Flint Hills, on one of the last remaining areas of the Tallgrass Prairie, Rock Springs is a natural haven, ready to welcome you for an unforgettable experience.

Rock Springs Ranch is the ideal destination for your next event

We’ll take care of the details so you can focus on reconnecting with others, building teams, personal development and having lots of fun! Our personalized service and comprehensive packages will mean your stay is perfect for you.

Plan Your Visit


Summer camp has been shown to accelerate learning not just for campers but for counselors-in-training and even paid staff. The benefits are immersive and lifelong. Your gift to Rock Springs keeps us and our facilities ready to welcome visitors, funds our camper scholarships and more. It also helps us send the lessons learned and experiences of camp out into the world.

The values of 4-H are at the core of Rock Springs Ranch. They influence and guide all of our programming to inspire our campers.

Seivers Family Reunion
"Loved, loved, loved the opportunity to let my family experience camp life at RSR. As a former staff member from years ago, I have very fond memories of RSR. After our day at the ranch my girls comments were: 'that was the best vacation we have ever had! We all enjoyed new challenges as we tested our physical and mental skills. Thank you all for this terrific experience!"
Labo Family Vacation
"The food all week was fantastic. The chicken Marsala was the best I have ever had. It was a five star meal. I truly felt like I was on vacation."
Elaine Fallon
Covenant Kids Camp
"I am very pleased with our experience. Rock Springs provides a 'get away' that takes out many of the distractions which can interfere with the quality of a retreat. The grounds are well kept, spaces are clean for meeting, sleeping and eating and the staff makes all the details so easy. I highly recommend Rock Springs and plan to continue our event here in the future!"
Farm Bureau Collegiate Program
"Rock Springs provides a tremendous location, atmosphere, facilities, etc. for our leadership camp. Kayette and now KAY camp has been conducted at Rock Springs since the facility opened. Rock Springs provides an ideal atmosphere as we work with our student leaders to help them discover their leadership potential. We love the natural setting and escape from the 'real world distractions'”
KAY Leadership Camp
"It is a wonderful place for a reunion. The younger ones start asking their parents when we're going to the ""Big House"" shortly after school is out. They and their parents like trying the activities. It's a great way to keep all ages of the family in touch since we're scattered some. There were 33 there this year aged from 94, me to Gwyneth 7mo., from Dallas."
Dunnaway Reunion
"Our students come from the city, so it is nice to come out and see the kids enjoy nature in such a beautiful setting. This is the first time many of these students have ever been in a canoe, held a bow and shot an arrow and actually hiked in nature. It is so great to see them play and get dirty and be learning important life skills at the same time. Your facility is top notch and we will continue to return."
St. Marks School
"This was an excellent event for our whole family. It was little or no stress. There was plenty to do for all our different ages. Each day there was a different 'favorite' thing. Kids and adults ALL had a fine time. Made lots of HAPPY memories!!"
