CANCELLED for 2022

We did not get enough registrations to fill our potential trip for 2022.  While this is disappointing to all, we are happy to be able to offer an alternative option.  Oklahoma 4-H has organized a CWF trip (June 16-25th) as well and is looking for people to help fill their group. For those interested in a possible trip next year, be watching in June 2022 for a registration for CWF 2023. If you are possibly interested in the Oklahoma trip this summer, please email dsratlif@ksu.edu. An agenda for the Oklahoma trip can be found here.
