When you look at your child, you see who they could become, and wonder how to help get them there. So do we.
RAISING HUMAN BEINGS IS AWESOME... AND TOUGH.
As parents, we try to balance the reactive nature of life with the intentionality of raising our children to their full potential - all while they are distracted by technology, social pressures, daily routines and more.
Enter the best week of summer - a week that is over-the-top intentional - in safety, fun, and faith. And it takes place in the backyard every kid dreams of!
WHAT EVERY KID NEEDS
At Sky Ranch your child will have the opportunity to:
- Form lasting relationships
- Foster independence
- Try new things
- Experience spiritual growth
Your child could be a part of the living legacy that has been growing for more than 65 years.
Feel Secure in Your Decision
We evaluate everything we do through the lens of safety. It isn’t just in the big things, but also in the small things. We are accredited by the American Camp Association, but more importantly, safety is a part of our culture.
Feeling safe frees up the space to have FUN - silly fun for our youngest campers in Texas, all the way to adventurous fun for teenagers in Colorado. Engaging counselors help turn every activity, night event, impromptu dance-off, and meal time into a fun experience that unites cabins together.
We know that when a camper feels secure and is having a blast it opens up the opportunity for them to ask questions and grow in their faith. The intentional plan of the Life Map is woven into camp in relevant, age-appropriate, and fun ways: Bible study, summer theme, and teachable moments with counselors.
Fostering spiritual growth and relationships, year after year.
Each program is guided by an intentional plan where we seek to grow a camper from who they are at 6 to who they can be at 18. This plan is called the Life Map.
Our yearly curriculum answers one of four worldview questions:
Who is God? What is our need? What is truth? Who are you?
PHASE 1: LEARN
During this phase, character development takes place. Through fun and relationships guiding them, campers can come to saving faith in Jesus.
PHASE 2: EXPERIENCE
Campers are challenged to live out what they believe, by putting their faith into action. They are ready and desire to learn more about who God is and who He created them to be. Phase 2 is what we call Leadership Camp.
PHASE 3: BECOME
As developed leaders, former campers are now contributors - serving in their community, church, family, and camp.
There's never a dull moment at Sky Ranch.
*Not everyone does everything. Activities are age & program specific.
Sky Ranch’s biblically-based study curriculum answers 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 will tackle these 4 questions from the Life Map meant to intentionally challenge and encourage our campers where they are at developmentally. By moving through them every four years, campers work through these questions in the different stages of childhood – developing and deepening in their understanding as they mature.
