A:  Camp ends on Saturday. Parents are invited to join us for our closing ceremony, camper awards, and baptism. Closing ceremonies begin at 10am. After our closing ceremony, parents are invited to visit their camper’s family group and be present for the awards ceremony. Every camper must be signed by their parent/guardian (or a previously authorized adult) before leaving camp. After the awards ceremony and signing out, families are able to visit the camp store or stay for the baptisms which will begin around 11:15am.

Ministry at SFR

Q: What’s this summer's ministry theme?

A: This summer’s theme is Unashamed. How we live today in such a way that we shine brightly in a world that is in need of the love of Jesus.

A: You can find a general outline for each night’s teachings below. When you arrive to camp, we will provide you with a way to pray with and for us from home.

Romans 1:16

"I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ"

1) Be what others want, a light in the darkness

    God calls us all to be leaders and leads each one of us to where He wants us to lead.

"Be strong and courageous"

2) The heart of a leader

    What does the heart of a leader look like?

3) The actions of a leader

    What does a leader do? What does it look like to lead like Jesus?

"Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the LORD your God will be with you"

4) Holy Spirit helps us lead

   Our strength as leaders comes from God, He is always with us, even when leadership feels lonely.


5) Step into leadership/Commissioning

   How is God calling you to be a leader at home, your school, your church?

Q: Why does Shepherd’s Fold do baptisms?

A: A week at Shepherd’s Fold is a powerful time that God uses to change lives. Baptisms are an outward expression of that inward change. It is a public statement of a camper’s commitment to be known and to live fully committed as a follower of Christ.

Q: What if my child wants to be baptized, and can I be there?

A: All campers will be asked by their counselor no later than Thursday if they want to be baptized. If a camper would like to be baptized, a Senior Leadership Team member will call the parent to discuss the camper’s request. Parents have the final say if their child is baptized.

Baptisms will take place on Saturday following the closing ceremony. And of course, parents are invited to attend the closing ceremony, baptisms, and awards!


Q: How do I know my camper will be safe?

A: Your children are the most precious possession not just to you but to God. We will do everything we can to ensure your child’s safety, health, and well-being. Here are a few things we do to ensure your child is well cared for:

  • Clear background checks for all staff
  • Intensive discipleship training and training in all camp policies and emergency and security procedures as well as behavior management and child development for all staff
  • Certification for all staff in first-aid and CPR
  • Certification in other expertise areas including lifeguarding and ropes course
  • Follow all American Camp Association standards

Shepherd's Fold Ranch is an accredited camp with the American Camp Association.


Q: What about severe weather?

A: Our leadership staff keeps watch for any severe weather (high winds, hail, lightning, tornadoes.) In the event of severe weather, campers will be moved to shelter until it has cleared. All staff are trained in severe weather procedures and will instruct campers throughout the situation.

Camper Communication

Q: Can I come and visit my camper?

A: Open meetings are on Wednesday evenings. It is an amazing opportunity for parents to experience camp and join us for worship and an evening teaching. Parents can begin arriving at 6:30 pm. Night encounter (the night meeting) begins at 7. Parents can choose to stay for part or the entire evening of events.

Day Camp is a rich investment into your child's future. Each exciting day lasts from 9:00 to 4:00 and includes swimming, crafts, games, singing and Bible teachings on God's love for them. Spending every day in the country allows kids to experience God's creation first hand. We provide a healthy lunch and snack to ensure campers have access to their best summer yet!

Treehouse Village (Entering 3rd-7th Grade)



With a low counselor-to-camper ratio, Treehouse Village provides lots of one-on-one time. Campers learn the foundation of their true self is knowing God loves them. Campers spend their week participating in pool games, riding the zipline over the pond, playing games, peer fellowship and so much more! Bible-based object lessons, parables and worship encounters are a fundamental part of each day.

Ranch Camp (Entering 7th-10th Grade)



Ranch Camp combines rich camping traditions with a spiritual emphasis on issues confronting youth. We pack ropes courses, canoeing, skits, night games, ziplines, frisbee golf and so much more into each exciting day. Worship encounters are vital at camp; by sharing Jesus' unconditional love, kids develop their identities in Christ through relationships and challenges that lead to a trust in God.
