Campers will stay in rustic cabins with the best cabinmates and counselors around. Cabin assignments are set the week prior to arrival, so be sure to make specific cabinmate or counselor requests ahead of time by logging into your account online (you’ll find the cabinmate request option under each camper’s personal information section).

Experience The Ranch

Campers will have an EXTRAordinary experience at The Ranch, as they make new friends, have tons of summer fun and have the chance to launch their faith in a safe, trusted environment. Days at The Ranch are filled with exciting activities, worship and age-appropriate biblical teaching that instills core biblical truth in students. Give your children the experience of a lifetime!

Never run out of things to do.

At The Ranch, the days are filled to the brim with horseback riding, climbing walls, rolling around in mud pits, getting up close and personal at the petting zoo, practicing archery skill and more! Oh, and what ranch experience would be complete without a rodeo? Not this one! We have that too.

Programs and Meetings

At The Ranch, we want to see every young person make a life-changing decision for Christ and have a chance to accept Him as Savior. Every element of camp is designed with this in mind.

In particular, campers will connect with God and learn how God desires that they would be respectful, honest and loving. Their faith will grow as they hear from engaging speakers, experience dynamic worship, receive encouragement from godly counselors and develop new friendships. At Word of Life, we love nothing more than getting students excited about living their lives for Christ.
