Check out this unique new camp where we have 8-11 year old boys and girls on site together, BUT doing separate and unique programming.  Campers will sleep in a covered wagon where each wagon site will have its individual style and theme.  Get a feel for archery, horseback riding, the climbing wall and the BLOB!  Learn some new outdoor skills and be creative with crafts tailored to each wagon site group.  Also, Bible talks, worship, skits, silly campfire songs and dedicated counsellors who are excited about this week, all contribute to introducing boys AND girls to the great adventure of the Christian life.

Campers ranging from 9 to 13 years old enjoy our western atmosphere at Wagon Camp, named for the unique covered wagons where they sleep. Ranchers are given the opportunity to experience a wide range of challenging activities such as horseback riding, swimming, kayaking, wall climbing, blob, BMX biking, and more. Our star horsemanship levels are offered at all camps. Meet new friends, enjoy the calm of nature and get to know God better in this unique way!
This new camp combines the best parts of Wagon Camp with the flexibility to branch out into one of three separate and distinct programs tracks.  All campers will stay in covered wagons and will eat most meals together, but during the day they will be scheduled into program specific activities based on what they signed up for.  Here is the breakdown:

 
Horsemanship Track:  Get extra time and training at the barn and in the arena with the horsemanship intensive program option.  Learn new horse skills, improve your riding, plus grow in your faith and personal leadership – all in one week!

  • Help Feed and care for the herd.

  • Go on trail rides – based on personal abilities.
  • Experience some of the standard camp activities during option periods with other campers from other program tracks.

 
Outdoor Skills Track:  Experience the great outdoors up close and personal!  Campers settle into the covered wagons but as the week progresses they get to camp outside in tents on our spacious property.  Learn how to live, sleep, and eat on the prairies while growing in self-confidence, teamwork and problem solving skills. Encounter God through campfire discussions and the beauty of Wolf Creek!  Tents and basic camping gear will be provided by Circle Square Ranch.
