This summer, Shekinah Western Ranch Camp will be celebrating its 15th year of saddling up horses, hosting young men and women, and sharing a message of hope.
“Every year has had something new and special. All of the young guys and gals who have come through this program hold such a high place in my heart and I will never forget the smile of each one,” proclaimed Tom Ravasio, the founder and director when asked about his favorite year of camp.
Nestled in Twilight Burrow of Charleroi lies the peaceful 21-acre campground equipped with all a kid could dream of: zip line, rock wall, swimming pool, fishing pond, horse arena, basketball court, challenge course, mini-golf, petting zoo, and the list goes on.
“The program has evolved since day one. We now have three forms of camp to engage even more with the community around us,” said Ravasio, continuing, “We have the Lil’ Buckaroo day camp for the 5-8-year-olds, overnight camp for 9-16-years-olds to stay for a week, and our discipleship program for 13-17-year-old girls who want an in-depth 3-week training experience.” Additionally, the camp now offers a sports week program in July.
“Through all the change and growth over the years, we have kept the truth of Jesus at the center of all we do, and to me that is the greatest thing we can offer,” said Ravasio.
There is no doubt that Shekinah Ranch Camp is great place to send children for horses, sports, and faith, and they have 15 years of great service to the Mon Valley to prove it.
