Rodeo Bible Camp 2016

RBS 0196

Becoming Champions’ Rodeo Bible Camp (RBC)is for participantsages 8-18 to learn and excel in theirchosen rodeo events. It is also a time to introduce them to Christ and encourage them in a growing relationship with the Lord. RBC is blessed to have outstanding instructors, many of whom are Christian PRCA World Champions. They join us to teach rodeo skills and motivate participants towards integrity and excellence outside of the rodeo arena. Volunteer counselors spend time with each participant during the camp, answering questions and having fun. RBC is a blast for everyone!

Another year, and another Rodeo bible Camp, ladies and gentlemen.

Aiden is getting the hang of this roping thing. He swung a rope at a live steer on top of his very own horse this year! That’s more than I have ever attempted! Way to go Aiden!

Addie and her pretty paint mare really had a blast too! Oh So loves to go! And she loves turning barrels and weaving poles! That makes for an enjoyable week!

Behind the chutes is where most of the action takes place. Doesn’t this look like a scene from John Wayne’s “The Cowboys?"
