Historic Nicodemus Kansas National Parks, major contributor

Professor Robert Bennett with the campers at the Mill Science department.

Campers meeting Dr. Myra Gordon, Associate Provost, KSU (major sponsor)

Nicodemus Kansas is the oldest all African American  town west of the Mississippi River from the reconstruction period of the 1870s.  Nicodemus was founded by five men, one of which was a white land surveyor W. R. Hill.  Mr. Hill went on to start his own town, which became the Graham County seat:  Hill City.  Nicodemus was named a National Park in 1996 by President Bill Clinton!

The camp would not be possible without the volunteers that work the camp and also raise money for camper scholarships.
