In the modern world where kids spend hours indoors in front of screens and computer games, El Rancho provides an awesome opportunity for kids to experience camping fun and the outdoors, taking full advantage of our exciting onsite activities. These include Horse Riding, Archery, Rockwall, Go Karts, Waterslide....to name just a few!
El Rancho Kids Camps provide more than just an amazing four day overnight programme for kids aged 8-12. At the heart of El Rancho's vision and mission, our Kids Camps provide an opportunity for children to learn about and experience the love and changing power of God. Kids don't just remember the fun times they had, they go away with memories that stay with them for years and years to follow.
Kids take part in daily teaching sessions, where Biblical principles and stories are interwoven into the camp theme, and taught in a way that is fun and relevant. Our cabin leaders run a daily devotion within a small group setting, to further emphasize the teaching session and to give kids the opportunities to ask questions in a one on one setting. Night time "chapel" settings are provided where kids can really experience what God is like through worship.
Just wanted to say a massive big thanks for the awesome time my daughter had at El Rancho.
She has not stopped talking about the amazing time she had since she got home! She loved it so much she would like to go to the camp coming up next holidays.

My 9 year old daughter has just returned from kids camp and to say she loved it is an understatement. Already talking about the next one.
Loved the fact that her gluten free meals were fully catered for and the leaders seemed so knowledgeable upon us arriving. The end of week concert was great and made me wish I had attended a camp like this when I was younger.
Was a great break away for her and she has come home super positive and energised.

Please use the "Oscar Registration" tickets to register and secure your child's spot at camp while you await approval from WINZ. These can be processed under the "Pay Later" option.
You will also need to file your subsidy form with your local WINZ office (the programme supervisor has already completed the relevant section).
Please note subsidy forms are not processed within two weeks of the camp start date, or before 8 weeks from a camp starting.
