Sky Ranch scholarships available for area youth

THORNDALE— Once again Star Creek Ranch in Thorndale, owned by the Sue Gove family, is offering 30 scholarships for Sky Ranch in Van.

“This is a non-denominational Christian camp that teaches leadership skills along with helping children to cope with everyday challenges,” said Richard Schneider, spokesman.

“Children chosen will get to spend a week of fun and fellowship. There are a number of water sports to enjoy along with group campfires and field games. They will also have quiet time to reflect on what they had learned that day,” he said.

Children are asked to write an essay on “What Do You Want Others to Know About You…Describe Your Christian Character.”

“This needs to be in the child’s own words. There is no requirement on length and it can be handwritten or typed. Children ages 6-16 are eligible to attend,” Schneider said.

For more information, contact Richard Schneider at 512-898- 1800, 512-898-2692, 512-760- 8689 or go online at www.skyranch.com to view the camp.

Applications must be submitted by Jan. 9, 2012. “We will not accept any applications after this date,” Schneider said.
