Q – Why should my child attend camp?
A – Simpy put…there is no substitute for a great camp experience in a child’s life. Although Sabine Creek Ranch is an incredibly fun week for campers, they are also developing the values and skills that every parent desires for their children: teamwork, friendship, faith, exercise, athletic and creative skills and so much more. A day at the water park provides fun, but at camp children gaze at a million stars on a hayride and sing songs around a campfire. They’re challenged and encouraged. They begin to understand that God loves them and has a great plan for their life. They meet lifelong friends. Summer camp can help sets kids on a great life trajectory, so make it an annual priority for your child!
Q – Is Sabine Creek Ranch a safe environment?
A – Yes! Campers are continuously supervised in a low camper to counselor ratio setting. Our facilities have been designed from the ground up with the best kids camp design as our goal. We are licensed and inspected thoroughly by the state of Texas each year. Our staff has decades of experience in providing a safe, secure place for kids to play, learn and grow. And our own kids go to camp here and participate in all the activities, so our team is conscious of our safety and security as parents as well!
