Ranch Quest Details

Christian Leadership Is Needed In Today’s World.

Quest wants to prepare your child to stand up and make a difference in their church, school, and group of friends. Quest campers will experience impactful leadership teaching, dedicated spiritual development time, and an incredible overnight out trip. Our staff will mentor your child on what it means to be a leader and follower of Christ.

Quest campers also get the opportunity to come back over the summer as part of the Cross Crew during serving weeks. Cross Crew members are able to serve as a Junior Wrangler and make a real impact on other campers. They are placed with an experienced  Ranch staff member in a cabin to utilize their leadership skills hands-on as they help guide a group of campers during a week of camp at Grace.

*Pathfinder is a prerequisite to attending Quest.

Quality Horsemanship

Paradise Ranch will teach your child quality horsemanship while connecting it all to their relationship with God. But your child doesn’t just learn horsemanship, they will live it out. Every camper will spend caring for, feeding, and riding their assigned horse every day. Through a combination of classroom teaching, riding lessons, and horse games your child will ride multiple hours each day for a true western experience.

Whether your child is new to riding horses or competes in shows, the staff at Paradise Ranch will improve their skills and appropriately challenge your camper to grow while having fun.
