Do you want to give your kids an incredible experience this summer? Then check out Rockin C Ranch!

Rockin C Ranch is a working ranch not far from Tyler State Park which runs Christian camps for kids during the summer. There are day camps for 5-10 year olds and overnight camps of a week long, for ages 7-16. They also run retreats for groups and outdoor education field trip experiences for 4th- 6th graders during the rest of the year.

The camps are simply wonderful. The children are well looked after by a team of trained counselors and have the chance to help out on the farm and learn about nature as well as enjoy water sports, zip lining, shooting, horseriding and other activities and crafts. This makes the camp really special. My kids adore collecting the eggs and feeding the calves and had a sense of satisfaction at helping out by painting a fence or whatever. This camp is all about building character, teaching life lessons, experiencing Jesus and having fun.

Your children are well cared for at Rockin C. There is a camp nurse who attends to all their scrapes or stings and the food provided is plentiful and remarkably good quality. The staff insist on a quiet rest time every day which prevents the kids getting too worn out and overstimulated. The cabins are warm and cosy and the playground and water facilities are clean and fun, fun, fun. Transport from central Tyler is available every day on the Rockin C bus.

At the end of the week there is an award ceremony and each child is given an award for a character trait they have shown during the camp. With pride my little girl received her certificate for compassion and my son was commended for ‘going the extra mile’ This means the world to them. For the older kids, there is rodeo to take part in – what an amazing opportunity! For the last 3 years we have watched with wonder our children grow in maturity in their faith and have a blast at camp. They love every minute of every day. It is great how they learn team work and how they are willing to step out and do new things with the encouragement of others.

Rockin C Ranch is a non profit organization helped by donations from the community. This means that it is actually affordable to send your children to camp. Scholarships are available for those in financial need. There are also opportunities for kids to work at Rockin C in order to have reduced fees for camp. As I said before – they are all about building character at Rockin C.

One thing not to miss is the open day, usually around Easter time. You can go with your whole family for a day of free activities and sign up for camp at a slightly reduced rate. Watch the newspaper for details. We had fun canoeing, riding and Grandad even went down the zip line (at 72 years old!) It was such fun and gave us a glimpse of what our kids were going to experience.

There are probably some negative things to say about Rockin C but I can’t think of anything at all! Our children look forward to going so much and can talk of nothing else for weeks afterwards. We’re blessed to have such a great place so near to us.
