Paid Activity Classes

There are a few classes that require very specialized equipment. These classes have an additional fee associated with them in order to cover the costs. All classes are open to both Jr. and Sr. campers unless otherwise noted.

These classes takes up one of two activity classes campers participate in each morning.

Laser Tag ($40)
Moving from our previously offered Airsoft class to Laser Tag will not only stretch the possibilities of game play but will also offer a safer and more unique experience. Instead of playing a game in the same, small designated area each day, imagine changing playing fields daily. (indoor, outdoor, large, small) Imagine not having to deal with pain each time you get hit. Imagine new strategic games like Infection, Elimination and King of the Hill.
Climbing & Rappelling ($45)
There's no reason to stay on the ground if you don't want to! Climbing and Rappelling is your chance to tackle the vertical world. Our climbing wall has a variety of routes so climbers can learn the basics and then try our more difficult climbs. After the climb to the top campers will get the opportunity to master the skill of rappelling, as the instructor clips them into the rappelling rope for the ride back down.  Closed-toe shoes are required to participate.
Horsemanship ($55)
You don't get to ride a horse every day, unless you're at New Life Ranch! Our horsemanship classes are a great way to get to spend about an hour riding every day. Classes are divided by skill level, so beginning riders have an opportunity to learn basic skills and more advanced riders are able to learn more advanced skills. Closed-toe shoes are required to participate.  
High Ropes ($45) For Senior Campers Only
People can't fly. But you can come close! The Zip Line and The Swing are almost like flying. High Ropes participants also get to push themselves as individuals on the Pamper Pole, and they work together as a team to overcome the challenges of Jacobs Ladder, the High Y and the Vertical Play Pen. Each of these elements have their own challenges and let participants grow as they push themselves physically and mentally to new experiences.
Closed-toe shoes are required to participate. 
Mountain Biking ($35) Free if you bring your own bike
New Life Ranch has lots of trails, and its hard to think of a better way to use them than Mountain Biking! Mountain Biking starts off with a day of basics to make sure everybody is familiar with their bike and gets a chance to practice some foundational skills. Then we hit the trails! Riders get to experiences a bit of everything: tough climbs, quick descents and good single track.
Hub & Spoke ($45) For Senior Campers Only
Check out this new activity class for 2017! It's an aerial adventure! Spend the week trekking each element of the new Hub&Spoke ropes course. Traverse elements. Challenge your limits. Work with a team to accomplish each task. The further you go, the more you grow. Will you be able to make it around the wheel? Closed-toe shoes are required to participate.
Horse Vaulting ($40)
Vaulting is a very specialized discipline of horsemanship. Think of it as gymnastics and dance on horseback. In vaulting the horse walks in a large circle controlled by a wrangler, while participants work as a team or individually to perform tricks and formations while standing on the horses back. Vaulting is a challenge! But we start with the basics and let each participant advance at their own pace. Closed-toe shoes are required to participate.
