"John Knox Ranch is such a special place. I love that my kiddos can experience the world in a different way while out at camp. They are given the freedom to run, explore, play, ask questions, and discover their own spirituality. While at camp, our children learn responsibility and scripture in a way that is inviting and fun. I know that when I'm sending my kiddos to JKR, they will come back better in one way or the other than when I dropped them off."
"Thank you for building a community around my daughter while she was there. She needed that time, and she needed you. You guys hit it out of the park. I cannot thank you enough, but I can try. . . THANK YOU!!!"
"Our camper is shy and introverted. It was a big deal for her to be away from home for 6 days. She returned enthusiastic about her time at camp and rambled on and on about the things she did and the friends she made! It was awesome! Our camper is also a very picky eater and she said all the food at camp was delicious! Her eating was one thing I was really worried about, but now that she's home she's even more open to variety in our food!"
"He loved every minute of the activities. He liked the food and made new friends. Being remembered from last year made him feel good. Thank you to everyone involved for making my grandson feel special and helping him have a good, wholesome time. He's already talking about next year.
. ..You are a blessing to every child that attends."
