Jackson's Ridge 'One of a Kind' Cowboy Camps!

Jackson’s Ridge is the place to take your kids for camp. Jackson’s Ridge offers a kids’ camping program themed around the cowboys of the old West. Step back into time for an authentic 1880’s cowboy experience. We feature fun-filled activities like Archery, Rafting on Lake Buddy, Pellet Gun Shooting, the Little Britches Rodeo, the Gold Rush Treasure Hunt, Swimming, Group Games, Unique Crafts and a whole host of exciting activities.

JR also believes in the power of experiential learning, There are over 20 different elements on the low and high ropes challenge course. Under the guidance of a skilled facilitator, a team of 10-15 children are presented with a challenge. Together, through group interaction and cooperation they must devise a solution to the problem and successfully complete the challenge. This process of learning through experience teaches a child about himself, his peers and his relationship with God.


Our evening council fires and powerful services create an atmosphere where God can change lives. All this combined with a comfortable bunkhouse and excellent meals make for an unforgettable camping experience.

Here is all you need...1 adult counsellor for each group of 10-12 kids. Remember, the JR Cowboy Camp is for boys and girls age 9-14. If your group is small, we will combine your kids with other groups to make a comfortable camp of about 100 children. Phone us and make your booking now!

Church Adventure Camps

This is a weekend camp that caters for church and community groups, for children aged 9-13 years. Powerful ministry times complete an action packed weekend of activities, camp fire and night hike.

Holiday Camps

Kids look forward to school holidays, but when they start the first thing they say is...”I’m bored!” Mom and Dad are left with a dilemma every school holiday as to how you can keep the kids happy and occupied.

Holiday camps will specifically focus on spending time with Jesus, daily, the importance of reading God’s Word, the power of Prayer, the essential discipline of putting time aside for God, the power of making good choices, choosing good friends, forgiveness, honouring yourself, family and God.

Holiday camps can be booked for a week or a weekend in the school holidays. Send your 8-14 year old kids to camp, they will have the time of their life!

JR offers a Kids Leadership Training Camp for the Children in your Ministry. Bring your kids to be equipped and trained to serve the saints with a variety of fun ministry tools: Drama, Gospel Illusions, Balloon Sculpturing, Cartooning, Fun Gospel Outreach Ideas and many many more.

Family and Specialized Camps

Book JR today for your Family Camp. We offer a unique opportunity for you to have a Family Camp, with a difference!

Instead of the usual camp where adults sit under ministry for the weekend and the kids are catered for separately, at a JR Family Camp the whole family will enjoy time together. Families will be encouraged to re-connect, communicate and build lasting memories as they experience God’s presence together. Family fun times complete a powerful weekend that will inject life and healing into each family.

Dads and Sons and Moms and Daughters Camps are specifically designed to help parents connect with their children at a very critical time of their lives. Keeping those lines of communication open between you and your child is essential to your relationship with them during those teenage years. Never under-estimate the power of spending one weekend with your child – it will be something they will remember forever!

Easter is a time when we celebrate the very core of our Christianity. There is no better way to celebrate the resurrection than being with your family.

School Camps

JR has a large range of school camps on offer. Our SKY program is a program adopted by a church to support and reach out th the unsaved in our schools. This program mainly deals with life skills through a 3-year program that assists children with making good choices for thier lives, sexuality, relationships and preparing for high school. We also offer school leadership camps, character development and holiday adventure camps.

Sponsor Children for Camp

Jackson's Ridge motivates individuals and businesses to sponsor children from disadvantaged communities to attend camp and to be afforded the same opportunities as privileged children.

We work hand-in-hand with church groups to identify needy, hurting children who will benefit from attending camp and link them with a “significant adult” who will follow up on their progress and be a listening ear and support to each child, after camp. The camp acts as a springboard for life change and the program provides the support to these children to become solid citizens in their communities.

Thank you!
"Thank you for sponsoring me. I had the best time of my life, I got saved by Christ."
"Dear Sponsor, I thank you for sponsoring me. Without you I would not be here and I had so much fun, Camp was fun. I had an awesome time. I enjoyed the pellet guns. You the best. Thank you God bless you."
Individual Opportunity

If you would like to assist us in this program, either by sponsoring a child or a group of children, or if you would like to become a facilitator at JR to work with these kids, please contact us. We would love to hear from you.

Church Congregation Opportunity

If your church is looking for a missions outreach, then why don’t you consider JR? Round your congregation up and get them ready to spend a Saturday out in the country serving children who are hurting and neglected. This is an ideal way to use your time to serve people outside your church and to sow into a variety of other ministries. Just one day can make a huge difference in the life of a child. Help us teach them about God, about Jesus and about themselves.
