Nature & Adventure

Campers explore nature, participate in new
adventures, and test their limits in a safe environment
surrounded by the grandeur of God’s creation.


Develop Social Skills

Camp teaches children to communicate,
to work as part of a team, and to be a leader.


Lifelong Friendships

Good friends who exert positive peer pressure
can make all the difference in a kid’s life. Relationships are forged
through shared experience and the compressed time at camp can last a lifetime.


Temporary Community

In a setting separate from their daily routine, with an opportunity to shed the
expectations and pressures of others, campers are freed up to truly be themselves,
to live above artificial limitations, and blossom into who they were created to be.


Try New Things

Camp pushes children out of their comfort zone and
exposes them to new activities and experiences.


Welcome to Circle Y Ranch! We have been serving children, youth and adults in the Midwest for more than 50 years. We offer an immersive, life-changing children and youth  and adult groups camping experience.  Our children and youth campers escape city life and engage in outdoor camp activities, coupled with a curriculum under the instruction of tenured professional teachers, that focuses on developing their social-economic character.  In addition, Our children and youth campers also regularly participate in structured biblical based education and learn practical ways to develop an intimate relationship with Jesus Christ and one another.

Some of the activities the children and youth experience are fishing, archery, swimming, Frisbee golf, bumper cars, go-carts, games and horseback riding.   At Circle Y Ranch, we believe we are changing a generation through camp ministry.
