Base Camp

Base Camp at Sky Ranch Horn Creek is a program specifically created to equip men and women ages 18-22 with the tools, training and spiritual disciplines necessary for life's challenging ascent. Horn Creek is a non-denominational Christian camp designed to glorify God by providing a place where ministries and families can experience renewal and the beauty of His creation. Likewise, we are looking for individuals who want to serve others within this environment, have a desire to grow spiritually and are seeking direction for their lives.

Base Camp Pricing

Base Camp is a very affordable option due to the on-site vocational work each student is responsible for during their time in the program.

The cost of Base Camp covers the associated fees of the program, including online courses, assigned books, trips and events, and lodging and food. As part of the program, students receive a $225 monthly stipend to offset any additional food & living costs that exceed provided meals and lodging. Towards the end of the program, campers will get the opportunity to apply for a summer position at Horn Creek, which is a great opportunity to put into place skills and knowledge developed during Base Camp.

A typical week in Base Camp consists of:

  • Two days per week dedicated to classroom and study time
  • Two days off
  • Three days vocational training and work
