Ranch Camp 2020

Enjoy daily horseback trail rides, be challenged by the basics of vaulting (that’s gymnastics on horseback!), learn all about horses during horse science class, and play skill-improving games in the arena. Each morning discover a new truth about God by looking at horses in a whole new way and every afternoon learn about God's love during cabin devotions. In the evening, everyone comes together to praise God with fun songs, skits, and a short message.
