Think you might get bored this summer and want to do something really exciting besides just sitting at home watching TV and playing video games?
Would you like to get away for a while where you could have some fun, meet new friends, and learn about God? Plan to spend a week this summer at Clydehurst Christian Ranch!
At Clydehurst, it’s easy to have fun: ride the zip line, go hiking or fishing, ride horses, try archery or riflery, shoot hoops and much more. Don’t forget about the awesome food, heated pool and great games! Do all this while hanging out with your friends and making new ones. But more importantly, you’ll be building relationships and learning more about yourself.
Counselors plan one-on-one time with each of their campers and will listen to your life story and will help you with your questions and concerns. The counselors and speakers will encourage you and help you understand that God always has a plan, and they’ll challenge you to live to higher standards. Our speakers know young people and teach God’s Word with humor and impact so you’ll remember it later.
You’ll take home wonderful memories and gain deeper insight about God and how special you are. So pack a suitcase, grab a pillow and sleeping bag and come to a week at CCR. You’ll have a blast!
This summer, Clydehurst is participating in an exciting research project about the effectiveness and long-term impacts of the summer camp experience! Did you know that there is now empirical evidence that the Christian summer camp experience has positive and lasting impacts that extend well beyond a week of camp, affecting family devotional practices, church participation, personal well-being, and faith commitment? You can learn more at the project website.

To the Parents
Clydehurst Youth Camps are planned to provide an awesome opportunity for youth to get out and enjoy the beauty of the mountains in a safe environment. All the activities are closely monitored by well-trained and experienced college-age adults who desire to see your children mature in character, come to know Christ personally, and grow with Him. Clydehurst is a great place for your child to meet new friends, gain new skills, and grow in their understanding of God’s word.
Clydehurst runs a counselor-led program with a small camper-to-counselor ratio. Our staff is carefully selected to focus on children. Give your kids an opportunity to experience a week they will never forget. A limited number of scholarships are available to those families with financial need, however, we ask that you first seek help from your home church.
