Jackson’s Ridge is the place to take your kids for camp. Jackson’s Ridge offers
a kids’ camping program themed around the cowboys of the old West. Step back into

JR also believes in the power of experiential learning, There are over 20 different
elements on the low and high ropes challenge course. Under the guidance of a skilled
facilitator, a team of 10-15 children are presented with a challenge. Together,
through group interaction and cooperation they must devise a solution to the problem
and successfully complete the challenge. This process of learning through experience
teaches a child about himself, his peers and his relationship with God.
Our evening council fires and powerful services create an atmosphere where God can
change lives. All this combined with a comfortable bunkhouse and excellent meals
make for an unforgettable camping experience.
Here is all you need...1 adult counsellor for each group of 10-12 kids. Remember,
the JR Cowboy Camp is for boys and girls age 9-14. If your group is small, we will
combine your kids with other groups to make a comfortable camp of about 100 children.

Kids look forward to school holidays, but when they start the first thing they say
is...”I’m bored!” Mom and Dad are left with a dilemma every school holiday as to
how you can keep the kids happy and occupied.
Holiday camps will specifically focus on spending time with Jesus, daily, the importance
of reading God’s Word, the power of Prayer, the essential discipline of putting
time aside for God, the power of making good choices, choosing good friends, forgiveness,
honouring yourself, family and God.
Holiday camps can be booked for a week or a weekend in the school holidays. Send
your 8-14 year old kids to camp, they will have the time of their life!

by a church to support and reach out th the unsaved in our schools. This program
mainly deals with life skills through a 3-year program that assists children with
making good choices for thier lives, sexuality, relationships and preparing for
high school. We also offer school leadership camps, character development and holiday
Jackson's Ridge motivates individuals and businesses to sponsor children from disadvantaged
communities to attend camp and to be afforded the same opportunities as privileged
We work hand-in-hand with church groups to identify needy, hurting children who
will benefit from attending camp and link them with a “significant adult” who will
follow up on their progress and be a listening ear and support to each child, after
camp. The camp acts as a springboard for life change and the program provides the
support to these children to become solid citizens in their communities.
If you would like to assist us in this program, either by sponsoring a child or
a group of children, or if you would like to become a facilitator at JR to work
with these kids, please contact us. We would love to hear from you.
If your church is looking for a missions outreach, then why don’t you consider JR?

about God, about Jesus and about themselves.
