Dear CranHill Campground and Cottage Friends,
It is with great sadness that I am writing this email to you today. If you’re like me you’ve been looking forward to coming to CranHill for your stay. Well, that stay is, unfortunately, going to have to wait just a little while longer.
Yesterday, Governor Whitmer announced that the Stay-At-Home order will remain in effect until May 28th. With this order, she has essentially required CranHill’s Campgrounds and Cottage Rentals to remain closed until at least May 28th. As difficult as this is for us, we rejoice because as a Christian organization we get to represent Christ in honoring the authorities over us (Romans 13 and 1 Peter 2:13).
Believe me, we really want to be open, and we really want you here. We not only desperately need the revenue, but we simply love the ministry that happens while you’re here. You’re not just like family… you are family.
You are entitled to a full refund without cancellation fees because we are required to cancel your reservation.
You may choose one of the following options:
DONATE your received payments to CranHill to help support the current financial needs of this ministry. In this case, you will receive a tax receipt for 100% of the funds donated and you can then make another reservation for a future date.
REBOOK your received payment for a future date during the 2020 camping season. In this case, we would love to help you find another date this summer.
REFUND Your received payment will be 100% refunded to you. Refunds will be processed within two weeks of your reservation date and credited back to your credit card or sent by check.
If you choose Option 1 or Option 3, we will process your request and you will receive the proper communication showing your donation or your refund.
If you choose Option #2, we will give you a phone call to assist your rebooking. Or feel free to give us a call during normal office hours at your convenience.
We are still planning to open the campground and cottages this season just as soon as we can. Please stay tuned to our website and social media for further updates. You might also want to catch a new weekly update video called “The Porch.”
Thank you so much for your partnership and prayers during these unique days. We continue to pray for all our guests, that the Lord would make these days a great time of family connectedness to each other and to the Lord regardless of all that is happening around us.
Blessings, and we look forward to seeing you soon here at the Ranch.
REGISTRATION OPENS OCT 1!
FOR 7 –17 YEAR OLDS
Get your boots, and get ready for a camp experience unlike any other in our horsemanship program. This program is designed for campers with a love for horses and is open to riders of any experience level to help you fuel your passion for horses. In this program each camper will spend time every day in the barn learning new riding techniques, practicing tacking skills, and learning about why horses do what they do. Horsemanship campers will also get to experience activities, games, and chapel with main camp which gives these campers a boot in both worlds.
The Horsemanship program is available in Ignite (7-10), Fuel (10-13), and Momentum (13-17) camps and is dependent on what ages are attending main camp for the same week.
For our Momentum (13–17) aged campers we will also be offering a Horsemanship Immersion Camp which will focus primarily on extended time with our horses and digging deeper into the program. Space in these camp sessions fills quickly so please register early to guarantee yourself a spot this summer!
Price - $560
7 –10 YEAR OLDS
10 –13 YEAR OLDS
For Fuel (10-13) campers, horsemanship is a continuation of the lessons learned from previous weeks of camp or riding experience. Don't have any riding experience? No worries! We will teach you. They will spend part of the day with other kids in the Horsemanship camp, and the other part of the day is spent with their cabin group.
Price - $560
13 –17 YEAR OLDS
Momentum (13-17) campers spend time each day learning theory and riding skills from our wranglers. Momentum Horsemanship is designed to be a continuation of what is learned in previous camps. Don't worry about your camper's experience level though, whether this is your first time on a horse or 300th time, we will help you improve your riding skills!
Weeks 4, 6, 7, include an overnight camping trip to the CranHill Outpost.
For Momentum campers, we also offer a Horsemanship Immersion week that focuses more heavily on working with our horses and less on our regular camp activities.
Regular Weeks: $560
Immersion Week: $650
FRIDAY AT 2PM
Typically registration starts at 4PM on Sunday, and pick up is at 2pm on Friday.
Please be sure to throughly read all email communications regarding your camp, as pick up and drop off times may differ for some specialty camps!
WHEN IS PICK UP?
Campers do not carry cash!
All campers turn in spending money during registration or before.
This allows campers not to have to carry cash, eliminates the possibility of theft, and simplifies the process for our store staff.
Campers may purchase store items or donate to our summer missions fund from their account.
Parents can send camp store money ahead of time or deposit at registration.
You can add to your camper's store money account through your ONLINE CAMP ACCOUNT, via phone, or with a check.
CAN I SEND MONEY?
CAN I SEND MAIL?
When you come to registration, there will be a place for you to leave mail that will be delivered each day of the week. Campers can also send mail home!
Please send pre-stamped and
pre-addressed envelopes if your child desires to write letters home.
You can also send emails that we will print and deliver to your camper, if you selected the option to do so at the time of sign up.
In case of emergency, parents will be notified.
