So Much More Than just a Kids Camp

In the modern world where kids spend hours indoors in front of screens and computer games, El Rancho provides an awesome opportunity for kids to experience camping fun and the outdoors, taking full advantage of our exciting onsite activities. These include Horse Riding, Archery, Rockwall, Kayaks, name just a few!

El Rancho Kids Camps provide more than just a standard holiday programme. At the heart of El Rancho's vision and mission, our Kids Camps provide an opportunity for children to learn about and experience the power and life changing love of Jesus. Kids don't just remember the fun times they had, they go away with memories that stay with them for years and years to follow.

Kids take part in daily teaching sessions, where Biblical principles and stories are interwoven into the camp theme, and taught in a way that is fun and relevant. Our cabin leaders run a daily devotion within a small group setting, to further emphasize the teaching session and to give kids the opportunities to ask questions in a one on one setting. Daily "chapel" settings are provided where kids can really experience what God is like through worship music.


Here's what parents have to say about our camps...

quote What a success the entire week was!! My kids couldn’t stop talking about what they did, who did what, and how much fun they had! They both raved about their leaders too!

Hand on heart, I believe my daughter's experience has been a turning point with her challenges. She is becoming more confident, school has become easier, her group of friends has expanded. She used to struggle in group settings, knowing what she wanted to say/contribute, but was physically unable to. Now she is finding her voice.

I can’t recommend El Rancho enough to other parents. You guys are absolutely wonderful and I can’t thank you enough for the care and understanding of all children, knowing that they are unique and special.

Apparently the food is way better than mine too!!

Keep doing what you are doing, it really, really does make a difference.

We look forward to seeing the beautiful team next school holidays. closequote

quote Just wanted to say a massive big thanks for the awesome time my daughter had at El Rancho.

She has not stopped talking about the amazing time she had since she got home! She loved it so much she would like to go to the camp coming up next holidays. closequote

quote My 9 year old has just returned from kids camp and to say she loved it is an understatement. Already talking about the next one.

Loved the fact that her gluten free meals were fully catered for and the leaders seemed so knowledgeable upon us arriving. The end of week concert was great and made me wish I had attended a camp like this when I was younger. closequote

And what about the kids?....


quote I feel like a different person after being at my life has changed for the better....I feel brand new. closequote

quote I love everything about coming to camp at El Rancho....the activities....the food and I always make new friends...I give it an 11/10! closequote

An Emphasis On Kids Safety And Fun


El Rancho Camp Staff and Activity Instructors are committed to adhering to strict Health & Safety guidelines.  

Through our partnership with OSCAR you can be assured that your kids safety is our first priority.

Our cabin leaders go through an application process that involve character references from their Church Pastors, School Teachers or Employers, as well as being Police Checked. Leaders are given comprehensive training before the kids arrive, to ensure they are fully equipped to care for your kids.
