Leadership Starts By Serving Others

Pathfinder Camp combines intense fun with Biblical leadership training.

Through crazy missions, team building activities, and dynamic biblical teaching they will grow as a leader while exploring who God made them to be.

The best part, Pathfinders doesn’t end after the camp week is over! They can come back for Ranch Hand Service Weeks with their new friends and counselors.

Trail Rides, Riding Lessons, Cattle Sorting and Work, Trap Shooting, Paintball, Tubing, Ga-Ga Ball, Campfires, Sand Dunes, Training in Leadership, Worldview, and Godly and Sustainable Relationships, Evening Worship Sessions

Ranch Hand - Pathfinder Campers

Give your camper a unique opportunity to serve as they find out what it really takes to run a ranch with over 40 horses, a herd of cattle, and a whole bunch of campers. They’ll have fun with friends as a Ranch Hand while they learn basic herd management, maintain the ranch property, and help the staff with programming for younger campers.

*Must complete Pathfinder or Quest to be a Ranch Hand

Junior Wranglers - Quest Campers

If your child loves working with horses and kids, then being a Junior Wrangler is an awesome opportunity for them! They’ll stay in a cabin with a wrangler counselor and group of campers, help teach Bible studies, riding lessons, lead trail rides, and help run free time activities. These weeks will stretch your child both in their personal growth and horsemanship skills.

*Must complete Quest to be a Junior Wrangler

Join The Cross Crew

Get a behind-the-scenes look at summers at Paradise Ranch as a part of the Cross Crew! Whether your child is helping with service projects or in the Cabin, they’ll be an important part of the team that makes camp happen.

Continue their camp experience with friends and camp mentors and help other kids have a great week at camp too!

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.

Parent Resources

Close-Up Of Camp


Many families would love to send their child to camp at Grace Adventures but wonder how they could ever afford it. Grace understands that todays world is very uncertain and the cost of camp can be a real sacrifice for many families. It is the intention of Grace to never have to turn a camper away because of financial barriers.
