Thank you for considering Strong Tower Ranch as a summer activity for your children. Here at the Ranch, we take our mission to serve your children very seriously.  You may be interested in some of the camp information accessible from the links at the bottom of this page.

We look forward to seeing you and your children!

Safety

Your child’s safety is of utmost importance to us. We have a staff to camper ratio of 1:3 during each camp week. There is a certified lifeguard supervising water activities, and we have a nurse on the Ranch property during camp hours. All staff attend training sessions which include training on Child Protection Policies.  Volunteers and staff aged 18 and over have background checks done each year they volunteer.

Camp fees

If you need a full or partial sponsorship for your child, indicate the level of sponsorship needed on the camper registration form (see the link above). If you have questions, email us at str.office.daycamp@gmail.com. If you would like to help sponsor a camper, you may donate through PayPal or credit card by accessing the link on our “How to Help”, “Sponsor a Child” page.

Transportation

  • Limited camp-van transportation is available for campers who otherwise would not be able to attend camp.
  • We ask that parents arrange to have their children transported to a location near an exit on I-70 or I-64 in the mornings and have them picked up there in the afternoons.
  • There is an additional $5 per week fee when we arrange transportation for your camper. Camper families can choose to carpool with another family needing transportation as well.
