Due to circumstances beyond our control, we will not be having Rodeo Bible Camp this year, 2020. We will resume in 2021.
An opportunity for youth to come together to experience the same qualities of spiritual, relational and physical activities that are prevalent in traditional Bible camps, while participating and improving their abilities in the western and rodeo culture.
Rodeo Bible Camp 2021 will be held at the Leavenworth County Fairgrounds in Tonganoxie, Kansas.
Students grades 5th through 12th grade are welcome.
A horseless event where learners become familiar with all aspects of rodeo. Topics include events, rules, equipment, dress code and judging.
This class will work on the versatility, attitude and movement of the rider and horse over obstacles at a walk, trot or canter.
A timed speed and agility event where riders run a cloverleaf pattern around barrels without knocking them over. Fastest time wins.
A timed speed and agility event where riders run the length of 6 poles, turn and weave through twice, then run back to the start/finish line. Fastest time wins.
Riders run out to a staked goat, dismount, run to the goat, throw it to the ground and tie three feet together. The goat must stay tied for 6 seconds. Fastest time wins.
The first step to learning to bull ride. Riders ride a steer instead of a bull.
A form of calf roping where the lariat is tied lightly with a string and flag to the saddle horn. The running calf is roped and the horse stops. The calf continues running and the rope breaks away from the horn. Fastest time wins.
A 2-person event where one is the header and the other is the heeler. The header ropes the horns of a steer and pulls the steer into position for the heeler to catch both hind legs. When caught, the riders face each other. Fastest time wins.
An event where the rider tries to remain mounted on a bucking bull for 8 seconds. Riders are judged on a 100 point scale, 50 points for rider and 50 points for the bull.
It is the job of the bull fighter to keep the cowboys safe from the bull.
A take on Steer Wrestling where cowboys/girls wrestle a steer to the ground by grabbing the horns. Competitors begin holding the steer in a chute. Once the chute is opened, the steer is taken out a distance and brought to the ground.
Tie-Down Calf Roping
The cowboy ropes a running calf around the neck with a lariat and his horse stops and sets back on the rope while the cowboy dismounts, runs to the calf, throws it to the ground and ties three feet together. The calf must stay tied for 6 seconds. Fastest time wins.
