Registration now open for Rodeo Bible Camp 2019!

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 2019 will be held July 9–13 at the Leavenworth County Fairgrounds in Tonganoxie, Kansas.

Students grades 5th through 12th grade are welcome.

Events

Rodeo 101

A horseless event where learners become familiar with all aspects of rodeo. Topics include events, rules, equipment, dress code and judging.

Horsemanship

This class will work on the versatility, attitude and movement of the rider and horse over obstacles at a walk, trot or canter.

Barrel Racing

A timed speed and agility event where riders run a cloverleaf pattern around barrels without knocking them over. Fastest time wins.

Pole Bending

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.

Goat Tying

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.

Steer Riding

The first step to learning to bull ride. Riders ride a steer instead of a bull.

Breakaway Roping

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.

Team Roping

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.

Bull Riding

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.

Bull Fighting

It is the job of the bull fighter to keep the cowboys safe from the bull.

Chute Dogging

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.
