Morph is the first step in Phase 2 of the Life Map, providing a great experience for young teens who love the camp atmosphere and want to add a deeper spiritual focus to their time at Sky Ranch.

Although we are always diligent in teaching the truths of God’s word in Bible study, stepping into Phase 2 invites a deeper level of questions and processing for campers. This is done in a fun, stimulating way for campers to establish a foundation of honest faith in Christ and begin to develop an understanding of what it means to not just be hearers of the word, but to also be doers.

Morph is the beginning of the Sky Ranch Leadership Camp program. Each day, campers dig deeper into fundamental issues of their faith and explore leadership principles which they apply in hands-on experiential ways. Throughout the week campers learn how to focus on the development of a strong character and healthy self concept. Morph programming is presented by camp counselors and our full-time ministry staff.

What makes Morph unique?

Intentional Community

The limited amount of campers per session allows campers to build deeper relationships with counselors and other campers in their cabin. As they begin to share and learn from each other, this helps Morph campers learn the design and purpose of the body of Christ.

Challenging Bible Study Curriculum

Campers begin to dive deeper in Bible study where counselors facilitate in a way that challenges campers to not just be given information, but rather to think critically about what they read in the Bible in order to discover the truth of God’s Word more fully.

Service Projects

This is the introduction of service projects that will increase throughout the course of Phase 2. Morph campers spend time with younger campers at activities and engage them in one-on-one conversation. This allows Morph campers to learn discipleship and serve younger campers in a way that opens their eyes to the need to serve others. Campers set up and help facilitate a night activity for the younger campers. Morph campers will work behind the scenes to learn what it looks like to serve humbly.

Activities

There's never a dull moment at Sky Ranch.

Activities bible study

Bible Study

Sky Ranch’s biblically-based study curriculum is based upon answering one of the annually rotating worldview questions:

  • Who is real? (God is real)
  • Who is Jesus?

Each program in the Life Map will tackle these worldview questions through our specifically developed curriculum meant to intentionally target our campers based upon the stage of life they are in and level of questions they are asking.
