Beginner Horse Camp Weekend
This event is for our younger campers who want to be a horseback rider but aren’t yet ready to participate in a weeklong event. Participants will spend time getting to know their horse and learn the basics of horsemanship including grooming, groundwork, respect, and riding. We’ll use some of our smaller and wiser horses. Most of our time will be spent in an arena. Campers may stay at Christ Serve Ranch.

Great Event for Kids Who Want To Find out About Horses!!!
Tenderfoot Horse Camp
This is one of the best experiences that you can have at camp! Learn how to ride, groom, and feed a horse. By the end of the week, you'll be able to saddle your own horse; take it out on a nice trail ride, and perhaps do a few games on horseback. You'll wish the week would never end!

|Wrangler Horse Camp|
Those campers with a little more riding experience will want to take advantage of this week! Wrangler Horse camp offers more time in the saddle than the Tenderfoot version, plus you ride on more advanced trails, camp out one night with your horse, and experience what you and a good horse can do with some gaming. Our Rustic weeks will provide a weeklong camping experience for the participants that will rival the wild west.
Ages: 12 and older

For older teens and young adults who love horseback riding but just can’t get away for an entire week, this weekend will be ideal. You will arrive Friday evening and pick out your horse, spend time riding in our arena, and sit around the campfire that evening. The next morning you’ll head back to the Ranch, saddle up and head off for a beautiful ride. You’ll have lunch out on the trail, spend some time in Bible study, then enjoy the camp’s many other facilities. That evening you’ll take another ride after a steak dinner cooked on the open fire. On Sunday, you’ll have one last ride, pack up and join other campers for 10:00 a.m worship.
Date: June 14-16
We are looking for at least one group to help us get our Horse Outreach Program ready for the summer of 2013. Participants will help groom horses, clean-up our tack, build campsites, clear trails, and generally help us get the horses ready. There will be at least an hour or two of riding each day. The cost is higher because of more travel, offsite meals, and horseback riding.
We will have Bible study, devotions around the campfire, and our head wrangler will share God’s gift of creation as demonstrated through the horses and natural surroundings the servants will experience. They will also come to understand the importance of our Horse Outreach Program to several hundred youth who participate in it.
Dates and Rates:
June 2-7 (Sunday-Friday) $250

Our horseback camps are designed to provide fun, energy, inspiration, and a sense of the power of our creator God. Trails are available for riders of various experiences, but we also want to challenge you to depend on your horse and your own abilities.
Camping out overnight provides a wonderful atmosphere as you drift off to sleep listening to nature and horses whinnying in the distance. You’ll enjoy the cookout meals prepared by our wrangler and will experience God’s creation in a way few are able to in this day and age.
Individuals and families (children should be 12 and older with riding experience) are invited to participate. This is a great adventure for young adults and those who still feel young.
Ages:12 and older
Dates: August 18-23.Cost:$400 per person
