Response to COVID-19

Communication Regarding Father Son Weekend - published 3/19/2020

Thank you for your support of the ministry of Sky Ranch. We were so looking forward to an incredible weekend together challenging each other to be men of the word. However, in these unusual times, we are voluntarily cancelling the Father Son Retreat scheduled for April 3-5, 2020 based on the most recent recommendations by government officials, including the executive order issued by Governor Abbott this afternoon.   At this time, we are transferring your current registration to our 2021 Father Son Retreat scheduled for April 9-11, 2021. Warrior Weekend is one of our favorite weekends and we are going to miss our time together with you and your son(s).

In the meantime, and until we are all together again, we’ve attached a couple of fun games and a dance video.  With the restrictions and social distancing, we thought your family might enjoy some fresh ideas on things to do together.  While we won’t be in person this weekend, we hope that these games will add a little Sky Ranch fun to your weekend at home.

We are praying for your family, our leaders, our country and the world. We are lifting up the families that have been affected by COVID-19 and believing The Lord will make His glory known in all of this. Praying and believing for His protection, for wisdom and comfort during these unusual times.

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Guest Services at GuestServices@SkyRanch.org – we continue to be here to serve you.

 
Communication Regarding Overnight Camp and Family Camp - published 3/18/2020

At Sky Ranch we believe in the power of getting outside, spending time together, and growing in our relationships within the family and with our Lord. With COVID-19 now declared a global pandemic, we cannot help but think about our Sky Ranch family all across the country – many new to us and many we have served and known for generations. It is our honor and privilege to serve your family and be a part of the plans you make each summer, and throughout the year. Our most favorite time is time spent with you – your family, your campers, your school, your retreat group.

More than ever, we want to continue to encourage you to rest in your faith, trust in our Father, and use this time of social distancing to pursue Him. We need to settle into the deep truths of our faith and trust in the promises repeated through the Bible that the Lord will protect us, go before us, and work everything that happens to our good. We are not given a spirit of fear, but of love, power, and a sound mind.

We are continuing to plan and prepare for summer 2020, but we realize this situation is evolving rapidly and you are currently considering ways your family will be impacted in the days to come.  In light of this, we are extending our transfer and cancellation deadline to May 15.  As you know, the final payment is scheduled to draft on April 12, should you determine that this is going to be a hardship for your family, please reach out so we can customize a payment plan for your remaining balance. We hope this will bring some immediate relief to you regarding decisions you are making for your family.  Based on what we know now, we are still looking forward to hosting your family for the best week (or two) of the summer!

As an organization we are praying for your family, our country and our leaders, and lifting up all of those that have been affected by COVID-19. We know nothing comes to us but through the will of our Father. We trust Him, we look to Him, and we rest in His love for us that is beyond our comprehension. Let us be a light and hope in these strange days, standing firm in what we believe and boldly trusting in our Savior.

If you have any questions please do not hesitate to email us at GuestServices@SkyRanch.org, our team continues to be available to serve you.

 

Communication Regarding Mother Daughter Weekend - published 3/18/2020

Thank you so much for planning to join us for our Mother Daughter Retreat. We know so many things are being cancelled right now, and we recognize that your normal schedules have been turned upside down, but we are currently holding out hope to still spend a crazy-fun weekend with you and your girl(s). Because this situation is evolving rapidly, our leadership team is constantly evaluating how to proceed. At this time, we are postponing the Mother Daughter Retreat to April 17-19, 2020. We are fervently praying we will be on the other side of COVID at that time, and ready for some much-needed girl time and glittery fun!

We have transferred your current registration to the new date. Please join us in praying circumstances will look very different in April. Of course, we will keep you updated as the situation unfolds, and should the need to cancel arise, we will be sure to connect with you as soon as that decision has been made.  If this change in scheduling prevents you from attending, please reach out to us at your convenience. Mother Daughter is one of our favorite retreats and we are hopeful to have a wonderful weekend together in April!

In the meantime, and until we are all together again, we’ve attached a couple of fun games and a dance video. With the restrictions and social distancing, we thought your family might enjoy some fresh ideas on things to do together. We hope that these videos and games will add a little Sky Ranch fun to your time at home.

We are praying for your family, our leaders, our country and the world. We are lifting up the families that have been affected by COVID-19 and believing the Lord will make His glory known in all of this.

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Guest Services at GuestServices@SkyRanch.org – our team continues to be here to serve you, and as always, we consider it a great privilege to serve your entire family. 

 

Communication Regarding Family Camp Weekend - published 3/17/2020

A lot can happen in four days. We realize that it’s just been four days since we communicated about how excited we were to have you join us for Family Camp Weekend.

However, because the safety and well-being of our guests, our staff, and their families is paramount to our ministry, we are voluntarily cancelling the Family Camp Weekend scheduled for March 20-22, 2020 based on the most recent recommendations by government officials. At this time, we are transferring your registration to our 2021 Family Camp Weekend scheduled for March 19-21, 2021. As we often say, these weekends with our camper families are some of our most favorite and we will miss our time together with you.

In the meantime, and until we are all together again, we’ve attached a couple of fun games and a dance video. With the restrictions and social distancing, we thought your family might enjoy some fresh ideas on things to do together. While we won’t be in person this weekend, we hope that these videos and games will add a little Sky Ranch fun to your weekend at home.

We are praying for your family, our leaders, our country and the world. We are lifting up the families that have been affected by COVID-19 and believing The Lord will make His glory known in all of this. Praying and believing for His protection, for wisdom, and comfort during these unusual times. And while a lot has happened in the past four days, a WHOLE LOT happened in three days, a couple thousand years ago, and we continue to put our hope in a risen Savior who is aware, capable, and available.

Published 3/13/2020

Like so many of you, we have spent the last several days and weeks learning about the coronavirus (COVID-19) and how it is impacting our world. For Sky Ranch, that means understanding how it may affect our guests, employees, and communities, and then making the necessary adjustments to our work and operations.

The safety and security of our guests has been and always will be paramount to the ministry of Sky Ranch.  With that in mind, we have made several moves in our ministry’s response to the threat of the coronavirus.

In addition to our current high standard of cleaning, Sky Ranch has implemented our contagious illness protocol which includes increasing the frequency of sanitizing “high touch” areas and increasing the number of hand sanitizing stations around our camps.

Sky Ranch will follow protocols set forth by local, state and federal health officials.  We are closely following the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) guidelines and recommendations on the steps we can take to help prevent the spread of the virus. We have shared specific instructions with our employees on the importance of washing their hands, proper cough etiquette and staying home if they feel sick.

There are some proactive things we can all do. We would encourage guests visiting any of our locations to follow some basic public health guidelines:       

  • Wash your hands, frequently and thoroughly     
  • Don’t touch your face     
  • Don’t share cups, water bottles, snacks, etc.       
  • Follow proper cough/ sneeze etiquette       
  • Stay at home if you are sick  
  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick    
  • Don't participate if you are at higher risk for serious illness from COVID-19 (CDC – People at Risk for Serious Illness from COVID-19)   

We will continue to closely monitor the situation and provided updated information as appropriate.
