Event description



A Wild West Outlaw is creating a disturbance at Still Waters Ranch. The Rancher is standing tall to protect the territory & ALL those in it regardless of any personal cost. Looking for Buckaroos willing to learn how to encounter dark valleys, & endure perilous terrain while facing danger under the safety & direction of the Rancher!!!

Join us this June for a unique and exciting 4 day VBS DAY CAMP experience! We will work as teams amd compete in different challenges. VBS DAY CAMP will run from 9am-12pm daily from June 18-21, 2019. There is no cost to attend, however we do ask that if you register and then can not attend that you cancel your registration(s) or contact so that we can release your spot for another camper. Please note the day changes this year 2019-- Camp is TUES through FRI.

"Still Waters Ranch" VBS DAY CAMP will have a fun & integrated daily theme for children entering K-2nd Grade. Day Campers entering 3rd - 5th Grade will choose one elective emphasis for the week. These students will attend their chosen elective daily. Because of supplies and preparation, once an elective is chosen, changes cannot be made. Please remember that our youngest campers must be ENTERING Kindergarten September 2019 in order to attend VBS DAY CAMP.

4 Elective Choices for campers entering 3rd - 5th grade:

Culinary Arts: Love to be in the kitchen? Campers will gain basic culinary art skills, take home a snack they prepare, and interact with peers in group settings.

Science Experiments: Does science come to mind when you think about summer camp? We hope so! Science Experiments offers campers exciting and innovative ways to get hands-on experience with various science concepts.

Art-istry: Do you like to be creative? Campers will create unique pieces of hands-on art with a "Sill Waters Ranch" theme!

Sports/Games: Are you competitive or just love playing games? Campers will interact with peers through competition, and just plain old having fun with wacky games, and much more.
