Miracle Mountain Ranch Summer Camp for kids

My kids just returned from summer camp. Last year was their first year going away and they went to Miracle Mountain Ranch where Jesse and I have gone before for couple retreats, etc. Last year they went for one week and when we arrived to pick them up they didn’t want to leave!

This year we let them go for two weeks…and now they say they want to go for six to eight WEEKS next year! I am not sure if this is a good sign (well it is for the camp) or a bad sign (for me!). And yes, they do have horses! Lots of them. Even the basic camp has trail riding as an option and then they even have specialty horse camps offering many riding choices. I wish I could have gone when I was a kid.

    I remember going to camp when I was a kid. Most through church some through Young Life and some like Basketball Camp at Bowling Green State Unv. Now that was fun. Well they where all fun.

    Hope your kids keep enjoying camp and you can keep living with out them for a few weeks each summer.

    My kids are there right now. What a great place for my two that love horses and even my one that won’t go anywhere near one!!

    My youngest (and most horse crazy) son went to see you at a clinic at Stage Coach West. Just wait until I tell him that your kids were at camp just the week before. He even quotes “Mrs. Westfall” sometimes!!

    My 14 yr old daughter is going for her 6th summer this year, and every year she says, “This was the best year ever!” 🙂

    Sounds like a wonderful Camp Stacy, Does he do about the same as Lew Sterrett does with preaching through the horses about the Bible and God? Lew was very good. THis is good to know. Does he take his preaching on the road like Sermon on the Mount? We just had Lew in Alexandria Ky. 2 weeks ago and it was really inspiring.
