Byler Ranch is a week long over night camp dedicated to giving young people a place to come and get ahold of Jesus while away from everyday life. Here at Byler Ranch we desire to reach out to every young person with an unconditional love, helping each one to realize his own worth. We strive to communicate the love of Christ by leading young people in physical, mental, and spiritual activities that stimulate the campers to do and to be their best! Our activities are designed to build confidence, develop personalities, cultivate a deeper spiritual life, and teach the campers how to have fun doing it God’s way. Everyone makes the team here; no one is left out! Byler Ranch is a place where every young person is truly outstanding! All of the Ellison family and camp staff are dedicated to the campers. Through this experience we want all of our campers to see that the Christian life is a fun lifestyle that can be lived everyday, not just on Sundays. We love Jesus here at the ranch and want that love to spill over into your life. We are so excited to offer this great camp experience to all of you. We know that God is going to use this week to encourage and motivate each camper in their relationship with God. If you are ready to come on in and have a great time, then throw on some camp clothes and let's go!
Ashley and Michelle Ellison started Byler Ranch in the summer of 2005 and continue running the camp with their daughter and son-in-law Tristyn and Kenan Sims, along with the help of Marie Hermida. They also pastor Christian Ministries Church of Southwest Missouri. The Ellisons have a heart to minister to people of all ages and help them make an impact for the kingdom of God. Byler Ranch is a 120 acre ranch that has been in the family since Ashley's Grandfather, Clell Byler, purchased it in the 60's. The ranch has been named after Mr. Byler in honor of his Godly legacy. The Ellisons are honored that you've chosen Byler Ranch as your camp!
