We can’t wait to welcome you!
As you prepare for a faith-filled experience at Klein Ranch, here are some tips and information to assist in the process. Medical information and scholarship forms are submitted online to assure security and privacy. To fill out the health information, please log-in to your registration account (use the login button at the top of the website.) More fun and helpful information is found below. Please contact us if you have any questions about you or your child’s faith experience.
Please know you and your child’s safety and faith development is our chief concern. Our goal is for each camper to have fun, grow in leadership, develop and nurture friendships, and to strengthen their faith. We promise to do all we can to make that happen. Please call with any questions you have about this faith-filled adventure. And thank you for sharing your precious child and time with us.
While at Klein Ranch , we are blessed to have the excellent young leaders sharing their faith. Your child will be part of a cabin group with a counselor always present. Grace-filled Christian community, friendship, and teamwork are emphasized. Counselors will lead the campers through the day from First Word in the morning, through meals, Bible study and activities through the day, and close the day with evening campfire.
