Quest is the second step in Phase 2 of the Life Map. It is a great experience for a young teen who loves the camp atmosphere and wants to add a deeper spiritual focus to their time at Sky Ranch. Quest campers dive into an understanding of what it means to not just be hearers of the word, but to also be doers.

Quest counselors are hand-picked for the program and a portion of every camper’s day is dedicated to Bible study and leadership development. The aim of the Quest program is for each camper to leave with a greater knowledge of God, a deeper understanding of who they are, and the skills necessary to propel them into the future God designed for them.

What makes Quest unique?

Intentional Community

We take the next step in intentional community with a larger focus on learning the design and the purpose of the body of Christ. Because of the limited amount of participants per session, campers are able to build deeper relationships with counselors and other campers in their cabin.

Discernment

In Quest, campers experience ownership of faith through programming and participation in “Real Talk,” an activity where campers learn to give an answer for their faith and navigate cultural issues in a way that proclaims the truth and grace of the Gospel of Jesus. This module is designed to move from just learning the truths of scripture to applying it to their lives.

Intensive Bible Study

Counselors are trained to facilitate Quest’s custom Bible study by asking challenging questions that allow camper led discussions over the truths of the Bible and how to apply it to their lives.

Service Projects

Picking up where campers left off in Morph, the focus on service continues in Quest, where campers move past a face-to-face relational service and process the growth that comes from serving in “thankless” areas. Campers have the opportunity to directly serve camp by assisting with the operations of night events for younger campers. Quest campers serve behind the scenes and learn the character of humility as they recognize the value of laying down their lives out of a response to how Jesus first laid down His life for us.

Life Map
Sky Ranch developed and implements an intentional plan that builds on itself year after year, and guides us as we design programs and activities for your children, with the goal of helping them become all that God created them to be.

Activities

There's never a dull moment at Sky Ranch.

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?
  • Who do you trust? (Scripture)
  • Who are you?

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.

Cracker Barrel

Cracker Barrel is a time for campers to visit the camp store during the day and have structured free time to play games and hang out with friends and counselors, all while enjoying their favorite snack or purchasing a camp keepsake from the store to take home.

Crafts

Get connected to your creative side and enjoy one of the pre-planned crafts. Sky Ranch provides the materials and instructions.
