While more than five million children attend camps each summer, too few come from our inner cities. Summer camp is much more than a fun vacation. Living, playing and sharing adventures together, camp becomes part of a child's development into a healthy, productive adult. At camp, children improve self-confidence and self-esteem, and learn the social skills of positive interaction that stay with them for a lifetime.
Thanks to a partnership with Sky Ranch, 25 children from Bonton will receive scholarships to attend summer camp in Van, Texas. For our high school students, they can earn one of five spots at one of their Colorado camps! Sky Ranch will also be hosting their Launch Camp for one week at Turner Courts in Bonton. It’s the perfect option for kids entering kindergarten through 4th grade who want to enjoy Sky Ranch Summer camp but are not quite ready to stay overnight.
Sky Ranch is one of North America’s premiere Christian Camping organizations, with locations in Texas, Colorado, and Oklahoma, offering programs year-round. Sky Ranch exists to provide people with a positive, recreational, fun, and memorable experience, while being exposed to the truths of the Word of God. Campers experience a wide array of exciting activities infused with character-building strategies, counselors that are incredible Godly role models, and an intentional plan that seeks to take kids from being mere consumers of God’s word to participants in God’s plan.
A big thanks to Sky Ranch for their generous support of BridgeBuilders’ mission to rescue inner-city children from the ravages of poverty!
