A week designed for middle schoolers to bond with close friends and make new ones, learn to get along with their co-ed peers, and compete in action packed outdoor games along side cabin counselors.
There are interactive chapel sessions and cabin group discussions based on a teaching theme from the Bible. All teaching is designed to be applicable for middle school aged campers from all walks of life and set them up for success.
This week is highlighted by our July 4th celebration, Conquest - a multi level capture the flag game, and night games.
All Phantom Ranch staff are screened then trained in our child protection policies as well as helping campers conquer homesickness.
