2022 Summer Camp Theme: “GOT QUESTIONS? OPEN THE BOOK”
Throughout the week, campers meet with camp counselors in cabin groups to focus on the Bible Round-Up theme for the summer. This summer, we will encourage campers to turn to the Bible for the answers to five basic questions of the Christian faith: Who is God? Who are we? Who is Jesus? Whatis truth? What is faith?
As we explore the Bible for these answers, we will see just how important it is to answer these questions in order to be prepared for answering other challenging questions in life such as these: Does God love me? Do I matter? Why is life so crazy? How can I handle the stresses and strains of my life?
Psalm 18:30 says, “As for God, his way is perfect; the word of the LORD is flawless. He is a shield for all who take refuge in Him.” Campers will learn that answering foundational questions will prepare them to build a relationship with Jesus so that they can navigate life's challenges with hope in the God who cares for them.
The Trailblazer Round-ups #1 and #7 are more intense than your typical week of camp, allowing junior high and teen campers to spend additional time in their chosen Skill Track. Mornings are devoted to the Trailblazer Skill Tracks, which are called Trails. Each camper will choose one of three Trails: Wrangler Week, Adventure Camp, or Target Sports Camp. Afternoons allow for optional activities while evenings involve camp-wide activities such as games, Bible Round-Up, and more. Click here for more information.
Our Pathfinder Round-ups #2, #3, and #4 offer a balance of learning, games, and other activities that allow campers from 3rd through 12th Grade to experience WLD Ranch to the fullest. Mornings are devoted to Bible Round-Up as well as Pathfinder Skill Tracks, which are called Paths. Each camper will choose one of five Paths: Adventure Team, Archery, Horsemanship, Outdoor Skills, or Riflery. Campers also look forward to guest speakers, skit night, campfires, and hayrides. For more information on specific camp activities, including Skill Tracks and Bible Round-Up, read this description. You may also want to read about our Photo Packages. Here is a sample of our daily schedule.
Tenderfoot Round-up #5 is designed with our younger campers (and their parents) in mind. By considering the needs of the children in this age group, we give campers a “well rounded” taste of camp life.
Pre-Junior campers sample activities such as horse rides, challenge course activities, Bible Round-Up, swimming, archery, and more. Group activities, freetime events, and Bible lessons are all aimed at meeting the needs of our younger campers in a 3-Day/2-Night stay.
Family Camp, July 22-24
Bring your whole family to summer camp! Enjoy loads of WLD Ranch style family fun for the weekend of July 22-24.
Weekend activities will include hayrides, horse rides, family electives (may include canoeing, lasso and trick rope demonstrations, team challenge course, outdoor skills, and more), freetime activities (such as swimming and archery), singing and devotions (speaker: TBD), and more. Family Camp includes three meals on Saturday and two meals on Sunday.
Saturday evening's Theme Night for Family Camp 2022 is the Scottish Highlands, so grab your kilt and display your family crest while enjoying the food and games of the Scottish Highlands. If we are lucky (or unlucky depending on your opinions), we may even hear some bagpipes to rally the excitement.
Explorer Day Camp, August 8-11
For those of you who would like to try something a little bit different than our typical week of camp, this week may be for you! As a Day Camp only option, campers will arrive at 9:00 am to begin activities and depart at 4:00 pm. Throughout the day, campers will enjoy a unique focus on Skill Tracks by choosing two of six Skill Tracks (one in the morning and one in the afternoon). They will also have a morning Bible lesson, lunch, and free-time activities.
Morning Skill Tracks:
Horse Adventures – Spend time with the horses doing things not always part of the Pathfinder Roundup. Activities could include games on horseback, trail rides, cowboy skills like roping, and more.
Survival Skills – Learn survival skills such as creating shelters, building fires, using a compass, and more.
Target Practice – Improve your aim with slingshots, tomahawks, atlatls, and archery with a tournament at the end of the week.
Afternoon Skill Tracks:
Outdoor Adventures – Explore the great outdoors through canoeing, fishing, hiking, and more.
Pioneer Crafts – Have fun making items pioneers would have made as well as enjoying modern-day crafts with a nature theme. You can take your projects home at the end of the week.
WLD Games – Enjoy disc golf, raptor, archery golf, and other unique games we enjoy here at WLD Ranch.
