This past weekend the Sky Ranch Board of Directors had a retreat at camp. As part of the retreat, the board approved the 2012 Program Schedule and Pricing. While the calendar remained fairly consistent with 2011, changes to the schedule included:

  • Moving a Seekers Confirmation Camp week from July to June and an All Ages week from June to July. With the 2012 ELCA Youth Gathering, the thought is to focus on congregational programs in June and more individual programs in July.
  • Sky Ranch will be offering the Ride with the Ranch Bust Trip to the 2012 ELCA Youth Gathering. The bus trip will pick up congregations throughout the Rocky Mountain Synod, as we build community and do outreach on the way to the Gathering.
  • A new High School focused week was added at the end of the summer. This additional week–from August 5 – 10–will offer a program where high school participants get to stay in the cabins and partake of the numerous adventure and program options that Sky Ranch offers.
  • Staff in Training has gone from a three week program to a one week training, followed by volunteer opportunities throughout the summer. The goal is to open up this program to more participants by making scheduling a bit less restrictive (the previous three week program was difficult for people to attend).

Online registration for 2012 will open on October 1, 2011. Groups reservation can be made by calling our office at 970-493-5258.

Let the planning begin for another great summer of ministry!
