WORD TRAVELS FAST!
"I just want to take a minute and thank you and your staff for one of the greatest experiences in my grandson's life. He learned about horses, gentle competition, relationships, social skills and independence. Quite a lot for such a short time. I watched Jeremy transform from a little boy with many insecurities, to a confident, outgoing, motivated child. I attribute all this to Shekinah Ranch and it's staff. They taught and nurtured him. They showed true concern and interest in him. He loved the camp. My fear before starting, was that he would be bullied. Under the guidance of your staff, this never existed. He learned how to make new relationships and get along with new friends. You should be very proud of your camp, your staff, and how deeply they touch and change young lives forever."
Audrey (Day Camper Grandparent)
"Thank you so much for giving my girls a great camping week. They are still talking about what a great time they had... They love Shekinah and want to go back next year - they are hooked! You cannot put a value on creating memories that kids will retain for a lifetime." Mike (Parent)
Thank you so much for the wonderful experience we had. The girls learned so much in our time there for the girl scout horse program and I learned that you and the staff there are very caring and dedicated. All I heard on the car ride home was how awesome it was being at the ranch! We appreciate all that you did for us. Patty (Girl Scout Troop Leader)
"Thank you for the best week ever. I learned so many new things about horses and God. I learned how to depend on others but to also depend on myself.... I learned how to be a leader...I loved the challenge course and the climbing wall." Zoe (Camper)
"Just wanted to tell you how impressed I was at Shekinah Ranch. The staff were exceptionally wonderful. Everyone from Pastor Tom to Megan to Josh. Blake just absolutely loved Josh. He was so great with Blake. I can't believe he made it the entire week! They keep those kids busy. Blake has not stopped talking about all his experiences that week. It really made an impression on him and he really did grow up a lot. It was the best thing we have made him do. Leslie (Parent)
"I am very grateful for the work that you do and the dedication you have to teaching our Lord's word. Both girls LOVE the ranch and will return as often as funds permit. You offer a quality horse ranch for a fraction of other camp prices. Keep up the wonderful work and God Bless!" Sue & Steve (Parents)
"I loved everything!!! I think it was the best camp I ever went to!! Megan, Josh and Pastor Tom were the BEST. They were funny and helpful and so much more. I will see you next year!!!" Natalie (Camper)
"I love this camp! It is so much fun and so many things to do! You will never be bored. Also, many of us make new and close friends along the way. Good job on making this camp the way it is and for giving me the opportunity to learn about horses and God. I hope to return this summer and hopefully in the future to my "SECOND FAMILY". Congrats!!" Stephanie (camper)
"Thank you for a wonderful week. Kayla had a blast! Tons of memories. Please know that I think what your team does is great for all children. When Kayla returns home from your care her faith is always energized."
