Teens & Leadership Summer Camps are memorable with tons of activities, great food and epic adventure! Geared toward teenagers, they are full of energy and all the best that Circle Square Ranch has to offer!  We’ve got amazing facilities for you to explore horseback riding, wall climbing, archery, swimming, sports, and much more! In addition to all of this, there will be great opportunities to learn more about God’s love and discuss what a relationship with Him could look like.
We also run leadership training programs for teens who are wanting to grow in character and leadership ability as well as to learn how to make a difference for Christ in their home communities.

252 Crew

Ages 14 - 15 | Girls, Boys

The 252 Crew program offers youth 14 to 15 years old an opportunity to be a camper and learn what it’s like to work at camp. This unique program is designed to develop leadership abilities as teens serve at camp from a ‘behind-the-scenes’ vantage point.

They will learn about God and grow in community with friends and leaders working together in food preparation, housekeeping and maintenance. The 252 Crew will also enjoy camp activities like climbing, high ropes and archery. Campers will earn 20 hours of community service, which counts toward the OSSD’s required hours of mandatory community service if a camper is entering grade 9. Certificates are issued at end of each camp session.

Discovery Camp Teen Week

Ages 13 - 15 | Co-ed

Teen Week is a high-energy camp featuring crazy wide games, late-night activities, relevant discussions and campfires, along with all of the great activities and excitement of Discovery Camp!

You will have opportunity to enjoy all of our classic camp activities like horseback riding, swimming, archery, crafts, zip-line, high ropes, initiative course, rock wall climbing and more! Discovery Camp offers trail or level riding programs, optional barn & tack care, and optional horse science classes. Create lasting friendships over crazy theme meals & outdoor cookouts.

Teen Week Campers must be at least 13 and no older than 15 by session start date.

Equestrian Teen Week

Advanced | Co-ed

The small size of our Equestrian Programs make this camp an excellent choice for teens who love horses. There is one hour of Western Instruction, one hour of English Instruction and one hour of recreational riding a day. That’s over three hours of horse activities daily! Equestrian Teen Week is a high-energy camp featuring crazy wide games, late-night activities, relevant discussions and campfires, and awesome camp activities. Campers will be accepted into the level they request based on their current horsemanship skills. Please contact the office by phone to discuss which camp would be best for you.

Advanced Riding Camp is intended to polish the skills of accomplished riders who are already confident at a walk, jog/trot and lope/canter. Campers will fine-tune their communication while riding, working on extension and collection, learning trail patterns, and up to 2′ 3″ jumping courses. Campers must be accepted into this level of riding camp. Please contact the office by phone or email to discuss if this is the right camp for your child. A video of your child riding may be necessary if you live too far away to come in for a riding assessment.

We also offer Foundation and Intermediate Equestrian Camps during other weeks of the summer.

Route 4:13

Ages 13 - 14 | Co-ed

Route 4:13 is a week-long introductory leadership camp program geared to teens that are looking to go beyond the regular camp experience.

The purpose of Route 4:13 is to challenge teens to grow deeper in their faith while creating amazing memories. We take all the best aspects of camp; great friends, fun camp activities, evening campfires and combine it with interactive sessions & Bible studies, practical training and some great hangout time. Route 4:13 is for teens who are interested in learning more about what it really means to follow Jesus, being part of a Christian community, and how to serve in a practical way at camp. Campers will enjoy recreational activities in many areas such as wall climbing, high ropes, horseback riding, archery, drama, and more.
Campers need to apply and be accepted into Route 4:13. Upon submission of the online application, an additional Route 4:13 application will be emailed to you. Application includes a questionnaire to be submitted by the applicant, as well as a reference. A full refund will be issued if the applicant is not accepted into the camp.
Campers who are accepted into this program are eligible for a special Route 4:13 + Discovery Camp Combo Package Discount. Campers who register for both Route 4:13 AND a week of Discovery Camp at any point in the summer will receive a $250 discount.

LIT (Leaders In Training)

Ages 15 - 16 | Co-ed

Our Leaders In Training program is for teens ages 15 and 16 who are interested in learning to become extraordinary servant leaders that will be influencers at camp and in their home, school or church communities.

The LIT course is a three week program. The first two weeks of the program focus on providing both spiritual and practical training. Our Bible studies and character-building activities help teens deepen their faith and explore their questions about God while they learn everything from how to run a camp program to how to provide mentorship to a younger child.

During the third week of the LIT program, participants will be placed in a support role at camp and be able to put into practice what they have been learning. If the LIT participant is unable to complete their placement week in the week following the in-course portion, alternative dates may be arranged.

After a successful placement week,  LITs are encouraged and invited to volunteer at camp after their placement week.

Applicants are accepted into the program based on their application and references.

Please contact our office for information about our Camper Scholarship Program if finances are a barrier in your child attending LIT. There are scholarship funds available specifically towards the LIT program, and we don’t want anyone to miss out on the opportunity to participate.
