4-H Youth Development


4-H Campference will be a VIRTUAL opportunity for 2020

What is Campference?

This event is for 4-H youth ages 12-14 who are ready to grow in their leadership and 4-H careers. This year Campference takes some of the fun aspects of 4-H camp and the learning components of a conference and combines them to create a fun educational opportunity for middle school 4-H youth. It will include some of our favorites in a new way, like a talent show, a campfire, camp groups and a camp craft.  Delegates will also be a part of a community conversation and participate in a skill building workshop with the Kansas 4-H Foundation.  Registered participants will receive a 4-H Campference packet in the mail, which will include craft supplies, a detailed schedule, a few camp type surprises and other items needed for most all activities.  Kansas 4-H Youth Leadership Council Members serve as counselors for this event. 

What will you need to participate?

Participation will require an internet connection and a device (computer, tablet or phone).  For the sessions on Community Conversations and the closing (Wednesday sessions) a second device would be preferable, i.e., computer and phone or computer and tablet. 

Who should register?

All youth planning to attend Campference should register. Youth must be 12-14 years old before January 1, 2020.
