OUR REVIEWS


"Shekinah Ranch is a wonderful Summer Camp. My daughter Amalia loved it so much; she can’t wait to get back there next year. The entire staff is friendly and well trained. The cabins are clean and the activities are fun and educational. Amalia is doing horse riding in her home state of Florida, so it was such a nice experience for her doing horse riding in another state. She loved it so much, specially her horse Thea. Thank you for everything and the good care about my daughter."

"All three of my children have been day and overnight campers at Shekinah Ranch since 2005. We have watched as they’ve grown and expanded their program from its beginning; and we have LOVED every moment of it. Every year my children beg to go back, therefore, we usually attend multiple camps each season! I can’t say enough wonderful things about Tom Ravasio, Shekinah Ranch, and their program. I accredit this program to my daughters current love of horses, equestrian skills and her strong faith in Jesus Christ. She was one of the original campers to Shekinah, starting out at five years old in the lil' buckaroo day camp during their second season. She has grown into a wonderful well rounded young lady and some of her fondest childhood memories were made here at Shekinah. Now, her little brothers (6 & 8 years old) attend camp every year and she is always excited to share her stories and memories with them & to hear about their experiences as well!"

"Shekinah Ranch has been a blessing to our family. My daughter absolutely loves staying there. Words can not express enough on how greatful I am for discovering Shekinah Ranch at the PA State Farm Show. Thank you Pastor Tom for the wonderful programs you provide for our youth."

"I went here 3 years in a row when I was younger and had an amazing time; I got rancher of the week and learned so much. I then went on went to school to get my equine training degree and am now working in the horse industry doing what i love. These are amazing people and im so happy to see how it has grown over the years. This place looks amazing you guys did a really good job!

" It’s Shekinah! Only like the best summer camp ever! There’s so many things to do, you were never bored at camp, and that was like 5 years ago I’m sure there are more activities now than what there were before. I remember the cleanest room competition in the morning to riding horses (obviously) to the arts and crafts down to the rock wall and the hikes and paintball...Whenever I see pictures of me being at camp with my friends I see nothing but smiles! And I’m pretty sure I will always remember what was on the back of all of the shirts that I still have today... “I saw heaven standing open and there before me was a white horse, whose rider is called Faithful and True.” So if your debating sending your kids here. Please send them, they will have the time of their life, I know I did."

"This is my daughter's 4th summer and my son's first at Shekinah. My children love this camp and all the staff! This is a great place to make memories and feel the presence of God."

"My son got back from Basketball Camp, and it is still the only thing he can talk about. He learned so much, and not just about basketball. He loved his time here...and loved the staff at the camp. He cannot wait to come back next year!!! Thank you everyone at Shekinah for making his first camp experience so awesome!"

-Jennifer Thomas

"Pastor Tom is one of the most energetic people I have come across. Him and his staff show the kids how to take care of horses. They teach that God is great and so are every kid that comes to the camp."
