Every child is special, and each child learns differently. That means our diverse and highly trained staff work one on one with campers on a skill-enhancing program that is personal & individualized, sometimes even going outside the box/classroom to help children ages 6-17 strengthen and grow in their reading & language skills. We use an Orton-Gillingham language-based teaching approach, which is the most effective and beneficial method to teaching dyslexic children.

Each day is also filled with a variety of fun and exciting outdoor activities on property that are designed to help campers with their creativity, self-esteem, confidence, & encourage positive attitudes. There are also weekend camping field trips to some of the most unique and highly regarded destination attractions, right in our own back yard.

Camp Infinity1 Week

Kids Quest has again partnered with Camp Infinity to have their overnight STEM camp at Potter's Ranch using our staff and activities for our part. Inquisitive students in grades 7-12 love our Overnight Camps with our STEM & biblical apologetic activities! During these camps, campers will see how science & technology integrate with a creation apologetics worldview, preparing them to explain and defend their faith and succeed in their future STEM education and career.

This is our premier camp for impacting young people with the whats of STEM and the whys of biblical apologetics . Each summer our program team creates a brand new exciting STEM & apologetics program. This allows our summer team to expose campers to as much STEM as possible. This enables students before they graduate from high school to make a choice of what they want to study in college.
