Ranch Camp
Entering Grades 4-12

Ranch Camp offers concentrated riding and horsemanship training along with other Camp activities. Riders will have at least 20 hours at the Ranch developing their basic riding skills, learning horse safety, training in horsemanship, and western riding under the direction of our riding instructors. Our campers enjoy special housing close to their horses, and many activities specific to Ranch Camp. But it is not all about horses. Your camper will discover the depth of God’s love as we help them pursue a life of Godly character.
