    HERE IS A BRIEF EXPLANATION OF OUR CAMP SO YOU CAN GET THE IDEA OF WHAT YOU WOULD BE JOINING.


    This Ranch is a Christian summer camp for youth ages 5-18, offering overnight, teen and day camp programs. We offer adventure and equestrian camps for all riding levels, with recreational activities for campers to have a blast no matter what their interests are!

    We encourage young lives to grow spiritually, mentally, socially, and physically in an exciting fun-filled adventure. Campers are reminded regularly of God's love and His perfect plan for each of them.
