When he first arrived as a camper at Stoney Creek Ranch, Brandon was closed off emotionally as a result of struggles he was facing in his personal life.
But after spending time at Stoney Creek Ranch and learning the meaning of God’s love, Brandon’s walls began to come down. In Brandon’s own words, his experience at Stoney Creek Ranch was like a sculpture being chiseled away, ultimately revealing “the beautiful effect.”
Brandon’s story perfectly depicts the mission of Stoney Creek Ranch – to serve young people in a way that allows them to know Christ and the transformational power of His love.
At Stoney Creek I learned more about who I am as a person, and I learned how to love myself.
I’m thankful I was sent to Stoney Creek because I got to learn about the gospel and made life-long memories.
I learned at camp to quit fighting God with sin and fight against sin with God.
Stoney Creek Ranch is an awesome experience for both the kids and the adults that bring them. The experience impacts their lives for years. Keep working to build the kingdom and change the world. You’re doing an amazing job!
I gave my life to God at Stoney Creek Ranch.
I learned that God always has your back no matter what.
Seeing our youth so blessed at camp made it all worth it. Campers are still on fire and putting into practice instructions given by their counselors. I have received several messages from parents grateful for the change in their kids.
I learned at Stoney Creek that God has a plan for me because He loves me.
At Stoney Creek Ranch, I learned I want a stronger relationship with God.
At Stoney Creek I leaned about being faithful and having strength in the Lord.
I think “SCR” is a powerful Christ-centered ministry that God is using to bring true transformation to our city and modern day culture as a whole.
The staff here is amazing, the food is really good, and there is so much to do, from the blob to the waterzipline, from the campfires to canoeing on the big lake. It is just filled with fun things to do!
When I get home, I will continue to love myself and know that God is always by my side.
My favorite thing about camp is that the counselors relate every activity to our walk with God.
When I asked my son, “What was the best day of your life?,” he did not say Disney World, a cruise, or any of the other places we’ve traveled. He said, “The day that I gave my life to Christ at Stoney Creek Ranch.” And as a parent, there is nothing better. This is what it is all about. If my baby got that, then someone else’s child did too. I know how much Stoney Creek had a real impact on my son.
At Stoney Creek I learned to always ask God for forgiveness and to forgive other people.
This camp is awesome. God is truly being praised in all things. The staff is great and very approachable. I love all the staff dearly. They have changed my life forever. To God be the glory!!
What an amazing place and a fabulous experience! The staff was great to work with and went above and beyond to make sure we had everything we needed. The food was so good!! I couldn’t believe the quality of all the meals they served. Absolutely an amazing experience from start to finish! If you need a location for a retreat for your group..Stoney Creek Ranch is the way to go!
If it weren’t for this camp, I really don’t know where I’d be in my walk with the Lord!
I can’t say enough good about this place. Staff was incredible. Cabins were beautiful and clean. The grounds were well kept and breathtaking. I wish there were more words to describe the experience I had. All I can say is PERFECT!
At Stoney Creek I learned to surrender to Christ and let His words flow through me.
When I go home, I will be more kind and open my heart to the people in my life.
