A whole weekend together


There’s something about fun that’s contagious. Our Family Camp weekends offer a variety of activities that provide an opportunity to interact in ways that are hard to find at home. Conquering fears together on the ziplines, exploring creativity with crafts, and strategizing with laser tag are just a few of the activities that help our families bond and have fun together. Join us for a time of good fun as we learn a little more about who we are in Christ and how that relates to who we are in our own families.

The benefits of a Sky Ranch Family Camp Weekend:

So much fun

Go crazy at activities you won’t find at the playground: ziplines, giant 3-person swing, Treetop Towers, and so much more!

Spontaneous Conversations

Free space and events encourage spontaneous conversation so you can get to know your kid even better.

Fully Present

Leaving behind technology and daily pressures frees you to fully enjoy uninterrupted time together.

Exceptional Staff

Whether it’s a wrangler guiding you on the trail, the kitchen staff serving you dinner, or one of our mentor-minded, college-aged counselors playing with your kids, we are here to serve and encourage your family.

Uplifting Speakers

Each event hosts a speaker who discusses relevant topics to engage and encourage parents.

Intentional Moments

Parents receive prep information ahead of time for special events that allow the parents to go beyond the surface, get to know more about their child, and purposefully grow together.

Safe to Have Fun

We evaluate everything we do through the lens of safety. It isn’t just in the big things, but also in the small things. We are accredited by the American Camp Association, but more importantly, safety is a part of our culture. Feeling safe frees up the space to have crazy FUN with each other - on ziplines, special night events, and at meal times.

Be Served

We show our faith through servant-leadership. Our hope is that the love of Jesus will shine through our staff and how they serve you. No cooking or cleaning necessary.

Promote Lasting Growth

Family Camp Weekends are created to send families back home encouraged and equipped to continue developing deeper relationships. Parents come away refreshed after spending intentional time with their spouse and children. These are the moments that your family will build upon and one day look back and remember.
