Day-Camp Program

Blazing Hope Ranch strives to weaken human trafficking through the power of Jesus Christ. One of the ways we endeavor to do this is through exciting experiences that empower youth and their families to RESIST the tactics of human traffickers. Camp Run Free is a NO COST summer day-camp experience for youth in our community that will include the following activities utilizing specific anti-trafficking curriculum:

 

  • Breakfast & Lunch

  • Equestrian experience

  • Bible-based lesson

  • Activity/Project

  • Game/Outdoor fun

  • Prevention lesson

Summer 2019 Dates

The Ranch will host two five-day day-camp experiences this summer. Youth participants will be identified on a first-come-first-served basis through a completed Camp Registration Form with priority given to disadvantaged kids who have not previously attended. Space is limited so register right away!

June 24 - 28

July 8 - 12

 

Daily activities will be conducted at the RHEA COUNTY FAIR GROUNDS from about 8:30am to 2pm with meals provided by the Ranch.

He works justice for those who are pressed down by the world, providing food for those who are hungry. He frees those who are imprisoned; He makes the blind see. He lifts up those whose backs are bent in labor; He cherishes those who do what is right

(Psalm 146)
