Mission & Philosophy
Shepherd’s Fold Ranch is a Christian Camp and Retreat Center that provides an environment to encounter the fullness of God.
We believe in the Holy Scriptures as originally given by God, divinely inspired, infallible, entirely trustworthy, and the supreme authority in all matters of faith and conduct; the triune God – Father, Son and Holy Spirit; the deity of the Lord Jesus Christ, His substitutionary atonement for sin, His bodily resurrection, His personal, visible return to earth to reign in righteousness and glory; the Person of the Holy Spirit and His work of conviction, regeneration, and sanctification, Who indwells every believer, equipping them with gifts for service and witness; the necessity of new birth, in salvation by faith in Jesus Christ alone, and the importance of a life fully committed to the will of God in Christ and the church as the one universal body of Christ Who is the Head, called to be God’s redeemed people.
Statement of Faith
Summer Camp for ages kindergarten through 12th grade. Campers are given the opportunity to spend their summer exploring God’s creation, High ropes course, canoeing, hiking, epic night games, horseback riding, Frisbee golfing, participating in pool “ Olympics”, taking a ride on the zip line over the pond, playing new games, fellowshipping with their peers and many more exciting activities!
