Website CRISTA Camps- Miracle Ranch


CRISTA Camps provide memorable camp experiences on the beautiful Olympic Peninsula where people encounter Christ and servant leaders are developed. Staff and interns at our award-winning camp communicate Christian values as they lead activities, participate in programmed events, and serve guest groups. Some of the activities the kids have the opportunity to participate in are as follows:

Archery, swimming, canoeing, rock walls, horseback trail riding and much more! Miracle Ranch has the opportunity to serve thousands of kids and adults every summer.

CRISTA Camps is on the search for young adults who love Jesus Christ and who are interested in having an amazing summer of growth, service and fun. These young adults will have a life changing experience working at CRISTA Camps! They will grow spiritually, personally, relationally and professionally throughout the summer! Servant leadership development will transfer over to future opportunities and life experiences no matter what field they are pursuing!


During the summer, Miracle Ranch provides lessons, trails rides and horse education. This position creates amazing opportunities for the development of servant leadership, communication skills, horsemanship knowledge and interpersonal relationships. Working at the Miracle Ranch’s horse program provides a place for the horse enthusiasts to serve Jesus by teaching kids and adults about horsemanship. There’s a lot of variety in a wrangler’s schedule but here are a few of things which wranglers participate in. Wranglers provide the care and management of the herd of 40+ horses at Miracle Ranch under the direction of the horse program director and the head wrangler. This consists of feeding, chores and cleaning for the horses and small farm animals on camp property. In addition, wranglers teach or assist in the group lessons in western or english horsemanship. During this time, wranglers are instructing and correcting the riders in their riding and ensuring the safety of the rider and their horse. Trails rides are a large part of Miracle Ranch’s program and wranglers mount riders on horses, give an orientation on basic riding skills then go on the trails rides with guests. This position requires horsemanship experience. Wranglers also assist in program and housekeeping as needed throughout the summer though the horse program is the wrangler’s main responsibility.
