BROOKHILL SUMMER CAMP WELCOME HOME

OUR INFORMATION

Brookhill Ranch Christian Summer Camp was established in 1964 with the purpose of reaching out to every young person with unconditional love, helping each one to realize his or her own intrinsic worth.

Age Range:

Campers must have completed the 3rd grade and may attend through the completion of the 9th grade.

Food and Meals:

Meals are included in the total cost; however, General Store Concessions are extra.

If your child has special dietary needs, please contact the office for more information 501.623.5983

Bunk houses and Shower houses:

Rustic, ranch style bunk houses are provided. Twenty campers with a Head Counselor of college age and 2 Jr. Counselors live in each bunk house. Girls and boys sections are adequately separated. Shower houses with restroom facilities are cleaned and inspected daily. Bunk house living is “family style” with a variety of different ages.

We will not place a group of more than three campers together as bunkmates in the same bunk house.
