“So then, just as you received Christ Jesus as Lord, continue to live in him, rooted and built up in him, strengthened in the faith as you were taught, and overflowing with thankfulness.”
Rooted is a two-week camping experience for campers who want more than just one week of camp. Inspired by Colossians 2:6-7, our hope is for campers to be prepared, trained, and developed in order to promote growth both in their knowledge of Jesus and the Bible, as well as the grace He so generously offers. During this experience, campers will take part in ten days of their favorite Ranch activities, experience all the Ranch theme nights, as well as seven additional special evening events designed specifically for Rooted campers. They will experience the Ranch Bible study as well as five challenging breakout sessions designed to root within them a better understanding of the Word and how to share it with others.
What Is It?
- Two-week experience
- Same cabin and counselor
- Ranch activities and theme nights, plus additional activities that are exclusive to Rooted
- Unique camper competitions and team building exercises throughout the week
- Challenging breakout sessions designed to “root” each camper’s relationship with Jesus
Things To Know
Campers will, at times throughout the two weeks, be doing activities away from camp. Therefore, they will experience each Ranch theme night one time, but over a two week period. This will be done in no particular order throughout their time at camp.
Campers will be given the opportunity to serve in and out of camp. This means they will be helping behind the scenes doing service projects within camp, and in the Tyler area. This is not for the purpose of putting them to “work,” but to help instill within them an attitude of servant leadership.
