What makes Quest Colorado unique?
Quest CO Facilities
Quest Colorado is a 10-day adventure to Sky Ranch Horn Creek, near Westcliffe, Colorado. Quest Colorado campers will get to experience the thrills of mountain view ziplines, alpine swing, lodge style recreation center, multi-lane bowling alley, indoor rock wall, full court wood basketball floor, snack shop, and more!
Purposely limiting group size allows for deeper relationships with counselors and other campers in each cabin. As they begin to share and learn from each other, campers learn the design and purpose of the body of Christ, continuing to build off the foundations of Morph and Quest.
Through this interactive activity, campers practice teamwork and problem solving, with the purpose of discovering the importance of unity.
Inductive Bible Study
Led by hand-selected counselors, campers participate in inductive Bible study where they learn and practice observing, interpreting, and applying the Bible for themselves.
Campers learn how to serve with excellence in every aspect of life even in seemingly menial tasks. Building off the same service goals introduced in Quest, these incoming high school sophomores serve Family Camp families in a unique environment. During their session, campers serve by washing dishes, helping to clean up the dining hall after meals, and helping to facilitate Family Camp western night. Campers learn how to put their faith into action by creating a fun and loving atmosphere for others to experience and enjoy.
Upon completion, each camper receives a reference letter from Sky Ranch, which can be used for school service requirements and college/scholarship applications.
From Texas to Colorado
Campers are dropped off at our main Van, Texas site for a Sunday opening night of fun and fellowship on camp, then a day full of activities on Monday. Campers board buses Monday evening, mountain-bound. There’s nothing like a lengthy bus ride to tear down walls and build bonds that will last a lifetime!
Once at our Horn Creek site, campers experience all the traditional fun of summer camp, activities indigenous to the mountains, and in-depth Bible study with Godly role model counselors.
Campers return to Texas Tuesday afternoon of the following week for closing ceremonies in the Dallas area.
There's never a dull moment at Sky Ranch.
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.
Gather around the campfire with friends to roast marshmallows, share stories, and laugh.
Speed down our multi-line ziplines with your friends. A high-flying adventure you'll never forget!
The more players the better! Dubbed a kinder gentler version of dodge ball, Gaga Ball is played with a ball, and combines the skills of dodging, striking, running, and jumping, while trying to hit opponents with a ball below the knees. Players need to keep moving to avoid getting hit by the ball. Fun and easy, everyone gets a serious workout.
This is a swing unlike any other! Get ready for a 360-degree view.
The Horn Creek Rec Center is packed full of entertainment so, no matter the weather, there is always something to do: Bowling, Rock Climbing, Basketball, Racquetball, the Trading Post store, Peaks Treats, and more!
