Some campers enjoy coming to camp with a friend. Campers may request up to three roommates. Roommate Requests can be made in your online account up until two weeks before camp. When making a request, an email with instructions will be sent on your behalf to the other camper. Please note that both campers do not need to request each other, only one should make the request and the other accept. There is a limit of four campers in a Roommate Request group. This limit was created by our Summer Camp Leadership Team, as they have found that larger groups of campers are far less likely to individually connect with their amazing counselors and other campers. We cannot accommodate groups larger than four. All requests must have an ACCEPTED status at least 14 days before arrival.
Store Account/Ranch Bank
Each camper will be given a wristband that is attached to their Store Account, what we call Ranch Bank. This account is set up to manage camper’s spending money. Because campers cannot carry cash on camp, we ask that parents put funds on their Ranch Bank to purchase snacks, souvenirs, gifts, books, apparel, toiletries, and much more. We recommend depositing $65 for each week of camp. This can be done at any time through your online account by selecting Store Account from your camper’s itinerary. Unused Ranch Bank funds can be donated to the Sky Ranch Scholarships Program. If not selected as a donation, any amount over $5 will be refunded approximately two weeks after camp ends in the form it was received.
Transportation is available for campers flying in to DFW Airport, Dallas Love Field and Tyler Pounds. The cost for transportation is $130 each way per family. We ask that you please book your flights to accommodate the transportation schedule below:
- DFW: Sunday 11:00AM – 2:00PM
- Love Field: Sunday 2:00PM – 4:00PM
- Tyler Pounds: Sunday 11:00AM – 2:00PM
- DFW or Love Field: Saturday 10:00AM – 12:00PM
- Tyler Pounds: Saturday 10:00AM – 12:00PM
Airport transportation is reserved and paid for through your online account. Select Transportation in your camper’s itinerary. A flight number is required and must be provided to secure transportation in your online account.
Letters and Packages from Home
Receiving care packages and mail from friends and family is one of the highlights of camp! Most campers will receive mail/care packages at least one time during the week. On opening day, there is a mail drop station set up in the Legacy Center, where you can drop camper mail off after you have signed your camper into their cabin. Of course, we offer amazing pre-made care packages (SkyPacks) that can be purchased through your online account (select Pre-Orders) and delivered on the day noted. Our awesome Corner Store will also be open in the Legacy Center. Here you can purchase some great Sky Ranch gear to be delivered on the day of your choice to your camper’s cabin. Please remember:
- For the safety of all campers and staff, please do not include snacks with common airborne allergies such as peanuts, tree nuts, shellfish, etc.
- Label mail/packages with Camper Name, Cabin, and Day of Delivery
- We request that packages be no larger than a normal shoebox
- Please package all food in a resealable container
- Send only non-perishable food items and please remember no gum
Please do not send mail through USPS, FedEx, or UPS because delivery dates through these mail carriers are not guaranteed. Bring it with you to camp when you arrive on Sunday, and we will deliver it when you specify!
Camper Photos and Parent Emails
We have incredibly talented photographers who spend the whole week capturing your camper doing incredibly fun things! These pictures are uploaded daily for your viewing and purchasing pleasure. You’ll definitely want to spend some time every day seeing the amazing fun happening at camp. You can add other family members (think grandparents or favorite aunts) to view the pictures under Manage Guests in your camper’s itinerary. Also, we have a great email service so you can send your campers email during the week and let them know you are thinking about them. You can sign up under Send Emails in your online account.
Laundry service is only available for campers staying multiple consecutive weeks. Please be sure to label all of your camper’s clothing clearly. We do not recommend sending clothing that requires special care, is delicate, or expensive. Cost for this service is $16 per camper and can be secured by selecting Reservations on the itinerary in your online account and adding Laundry Service.
