Begun 1929, the InterVarsity camps contribute to the goal of creating unique opportunities to bring young people together around the personal challenges that a camp setting can provide. At camp kids unplug and turn their attention to the community they find there. The activities facilitate a greater understanding of campers’ talents and abilities, as well as the Christian values that inform the programming.Visit camp's website
My camp experience was good. I made lots of new friends. I did lots of swimming. I learned about the Bible. My counsellors were super nice. I loved the camp and hope to come back soon!

Dan Wesson, Camp Director
For Dan, his wife Stephanie and their daughter, Lily, this new chapter in their life builds on significant history at the Ranch. It started for Dan when he was just a boy and came to the Ranch as a camper. From camper, he transitioned into summer staff, which is also how Stephanie was introduced to the Ranch. Both of them began serving as summer staff when they were 16 and they’ve been involved ever since. Their leadership roles have ranged from caring for campers in cabins to designing high ropes courses to developing and leading staff in all aspects of session programs. As adults, Dan and Stephanie have invested time and resources in caring for and improving the Ranch property and facilities. They are passionate about carrying on the work of previous directors, whom they know well and love.
I stumbled upon some YouTube videos of life at CSR (https://www.youtube.com/circlesquarekids). As I viewed the videos, a flood of memories came back to me from when I was a camper. I would have to say the most enjoyable memories I have of the ranch would be the evening campfires in the teepee and the hall ... I can truely say that it was those evenings at the campfires with all the joyful singing and prayer that I came to know the good Lord and that is where I excepted Him into my heart. It was those evenings that I had such a life changing experience that helped me start on my journey with the Lord and Saviour. I would recommend CSR to any parent looking for a place to send their child for a week during the summer. It's one of the best camps that a child could attend. The campers are amazing and so are the staff!!! It's an amazing experience that any child like I myself, will remember forever!!
At first, I knew very little about God and when I came to CSR I was exited about the horseback riding because I'm crazy about horses. I also did other awesome things like rock climbing and BMX biking. When it was time for horseback riding, I was exited and got assigned a horse named Socks. She was wonderful. PS: I am going to the Horse week and I am excited to learn more about the Lord our God and Horses :D
Circle Square for me was a life saver for the 2 weeks that I was a camper. As a child I was abused as home. Being at CSR helped me find God. There are still times in my life when I can remember the good time I had there and the lasting memories!
