Our skits and games will give you some great memories and make you laugh so hard your side will ache. Become friends with your counselor who will guide you through your memorable week. Frontier Ranch, a life-changing week of getting to know an amazing God, making new friends, and having a blast, is the place to be this summer.

 

Frequently Asked Questions

  • How are campers put into groups? Can they request to be with a friend?

    Campers are placed into stable groups of 12 with 1 staff member. Stable means that the group of campers will stay the same each day for the whole week, they will also have the same consistent leader.

    Due to the social and developmental differences of children, we group them within 1 grade above or below.

    Campers may request to be grouped with a friend while at Day Camp. Some age restrictions do apply. It is the responsibility of all parents involved to arrange with all other parents involved so as to have matching request lists. If lists do not match or if camp has filled before requests are received, friend requests may not work out. Requests made after the initial registration may not be honored. Even though we will make every effort to honor requests.

    Mission Springs makes no guarantees with respect to friend requests.

  • What about sanitation?

    We have several large hand-washing stations and hand sanitizer.

    Cleaning of bathroom facilities happens twice a day.
