Thank You to Sky Ranch for Another Wonderful Launch Camp

If you follow regularly, you know that we love Sky Ranch camps. This was the third year that our son attended.  Something that you may not realize is that my son has grown a lot through these camps in many different ways.  Not only has experienced spiritual growth, but he has also gained self esteem and gotten past a lot of his shyness.  In today's post, I'll tell you more about his longer term growth that has happened over the past three years.

I'll start my post by saying Thank You to Sky Ranch for the amazing experience and childhood memories that they helped to create for our son! The Sky Ranch camps seem to find the best camp counselors. Their enthusiasm, kindness, and love shine through daily from the time that you drop your child off until you pick them up.  It's a nice feeling to take my son to a camp where he feels comfortable.  Actually, he has been so happy to arrive at camp that he forgot his backpack in the car on 3 out of the 5 days.  He apologized in the sweetest way one day by saying, "Sorry mom.  I just get so excited that I forget my bag." It's the sweetest thing to see him so happy.

The heart of the Sky Ranch Launch Camp is for the children to learn about God's love for all of us. Their daily lessons share messages from the bible. The counselors and children discuss the lessons together in a supportive group environment.  This is really nice because the lessons are tailored to his age and the discussions sound very nice.  I love how insightful he is when he tells me about the lessons.  They also provide us with a summary of the daily lessons so that we are able to discuss them at home.

Each day that I picked him up, he was excited and exhausted.  The kids play hard with everything from simulated Angry Birds games to water slides to squirt gun battles.  It seems like there is never a dull moment and my son definitely gets his exercise!  He also talks about the friends that he made.  This part is HUGE for us because our son has been shy and is finally starting to outgrow it.  While he is fine at school where he knows his classmates well, he has been shy in other environments. I've taken him to other camps where he tells me that he doesn't want to go anymore because he doesn't know anyone.  Well, I never had to worry about this at Sky Ranch because the counselors and program are so amazing that they make even the shyest child like my son feel like he is at home and among people that love him.  When I picked him up from Sky Ranch Launch camp each day, my son talked about his friends and the fun that they had on the car ride home.  It makes me happy that by little boy is finally outgrowing his phase of shyness!  I can't say enough good things about the Sky Ranch counselors. I'm just so grateful for him to step outside of his comfort zone and to feel loved at their camps in a way that helps his self esteem to grow. We look forward to him attending again in 2018!
