Ranch Camp began in 1995 with two sessions: one for adults and one for teenagers.
Seeing as the Ranch was just in the beginning stages, we borrowed tents and cots from the Texas National Guard, rented a few port-a-potties, got together a trusting bunch of friends and their teenaged kids, and opened for business!
We went to Taylor,TX to swim, we fed the baby calves with bottles, fished at Harken’s pond, hunted for eggs, did drama and sing-a-longs around the campfire, and rounded up the donkeys when they got out of their pen.
That summer we served 23 campers in all, and agreed we’d never worked so hard, slept so little, or had so much fun.
The Campers agreed, and every year Ranch Camp grew, serving several hundred Campers through the years, living in comfortable, air-conditioned bunks and swimming in our own 52’ pool.
