What is Camp Like?

Where will I stay?
You and up to six friends will be staying with an awesome counselor in either a covered wagon, a teepee, or a cabin.  All of these are equipped with bunk beds and are just a short walk from the bathrooms and showers.

What will I eat?
Our cooks work hard to put out three nutritious, delicious meals a day plus some yummy snacks and desserts.  You can also purchase treats and drinks at our Trading Post.

What is there to do?
We guarantee you won't be bored... just look at the list below!  (And don't forget, there will be plenty of other surprises we can't tell you about here!)
    - hiking - biking - swimming - canoeing  - fishing - paddle boats - the "Iceberg"  - the "BLOB"  - the "FLUME"

- 18-hole miniature golf course - .22 target shooting  - archery  - team recreation  - low-ropes obstacle cour
    - climbing wall
(new to climbing? try our "beginner" face.  think you're good? challenge our "expert" side.)
- paintball (Jr. High & High School Camps only)

What will I learn?
We hope you will learn about yourself and your strengths and abilities. We hope you will learn about teamwork and friendship.

       Most of all, we hope you will learn about our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, through His Word.  You will have the opportunity to spend time with Him in group and private settings all week long.  We pray you will hear His voice speaking from the Bible, learn of His love through the songs we sing, and see His life mirrored in the people around you.

       We hope this week will change your life and draw you closer to the One who loves you most.

The Brian Clifford Memorial Scholarship

Brian Clifford was a good friend who loved God deeply and always wanted to attend summer camp.  When the Lord called Brian home at the age of eleven, he had never had the chance to come to camp because of his health conditions. Cowboy’s Rest is blessed to offer a scholarship in Brian’s memory so that other children who want to attend camp can experience the joy of doing so.

Dress Code
Why a dress code?
Here at camp, we want to make sure that everyone has an enjoyable week and is able to keep their attention on the most important things:
Jesus and God's word. 
Therefore, we ask our campers to refrain from dressing in a way that calls attention to themselves and may cause distractions for others.

Undergarments: we don't want to see them!

      Pants: leggings/yoga pants must be worn under shorts

Shorts: must be as long as your fingertips

Shirts: must have straps at least 2 inches wide, no visible bellies

Swimsuits: must be modest, one-piece (or worn under a dark colored shirt)
