For The Love Of Camp Ernst

Our capital improvements work to increase camp safety, expand camper capacity, enhance current facilities, and provide more opportunities for camp fun!

In 2022 we completed “The Q” amphitheater in memory of Jim “Quinn” Wigglesworth. Looking forward, we have more improvements and upgrades necessary to keep our camp in good shape, so please contact Eli if you or your company can help!

Gifts In Kind

The Rockin’ E Ranch continues to grow through the generosity of recent in-kind donations, including sand for arena footing, Bobcat use/site work, arena barrels and posts, and even equine massages! If you have something that could benefit our program or facility, please contact Emily Momberger.
