Sky 1 is the safe, nurturing environment every parent is looking for! We create the opportunity for your child to grow in their independence, explore new interests, have fun, and develop life-long friendships in a Christian environment.

Thoroughly screened, highly trained, college-aged counselors lead, encourage, and support your child throughout the week. Our goal is to have a 1 to 5 ratio of counselor to campers in every cabin, meaning that each cabin has multiple counselors to help each camper form friendships, develop new skills, and have fun as a cabin while they collectively realize who it is God created them to be.

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:
