RRCC is owned and operated by Asian Children's Foundation, Inc. of the Philippines, which is a non-stock, non-profit mission organization founded in 1999 by Missionary Steve Deal.
Our camp is the only one of it's kind in Asia. Certainly, a must see.
The Ranch’s main goal is to facilitate orphan and abandoned street children of the Philippines and provide an unforgettable week of fun, food and an opportunity to hear and see GOD’s love for them . RRCC works hand in hand with local churches with outreaches to street children, urban poor and squatter children. The Camp provides a opportunity for these children to escape their horrific life of living in garbage dumps, cemeteries and sidewalk homes to come for a week of adventure with the exciting stories in GOD's Word. RRCC provides a "unique temporary community" for these children. They will have an opportunity to see the beautiful handiwork of GOD as they learn about their Creator and His redemptive plan for our fallen sinful race according to HIS Word, the Bible. Throughout their camp week they will not only hear of GOD’s love in GOD’s creation but will also receive a free medical checkup, vitamins and clothing as God provides. The local churches who represent these children will continue to minister to them when they return to their everyday life. Christian camping can be a life changing experience. We hope to provide an unforgettable experience of a lifetime for each little child GOD sends our way. Summer 2008 is our first camp season and already we have hundreds of street children scheduled to attend a week of camp from the streets and cemeteries of Manila.
Redemption Ranch Cowboy Camp is also a "training center" where veteran missionary Steve Deal trains national pastors, missionaries and church workers with methods of reaching children for Christ. Having worked with children for the past 28 years in open air evangelism, children's church, VBS and barrio Bible clubs. Steve has an array of methods to make the Bible come alive for children. In April 2008 more than 50 trainees came from different areas of the Philippines to the Ranch to learn open air evangelism, using puppets effectively, Firm Foundations- Creation to Christ and the Way of the Master course. Many others have called to ask for future training camps.
Mountain trekking is available for the strong hearted as the Ranch is nestled in the foothills of the majestic "Mataas Na Bundok", in Tagalog means "high mountain". We renamed the mountain Apache Bluff. The campers may experience a "Mile-high breakfast" where they can hike to the top of the mountain where breakfast will be awaiting them with the aroma of hot coffee brewing on the open fire. From Mustang Ridge you can see beautiful Laguna on the east side and a quick glimpse over your shoulder you will see the breath-taking skyline of the Batangas region, even the active Taal volcano. A morning devotion from GOD's Word will certainly make this a "once-in-a-lifetime experience.

Our First Camp for North Cemetery Children
In mid-April 2008 we had our first camp for the children living in North cemetery. Pastor Charlie Ferrera and his Sidewalk Sunday School team brought 50 children from Manila's large North Cemetery where hundreds of children live.

Here are some pictures of the jubilant children who attended Redemption Ranch from North Cemetery in April. Most of these children professed faith in Jesus Christ during the camp. Two teams, the Screaming Eagles and the Fearless Falcons competed during their stay for a mountainous 30 foot cowboy-style banana split.
Teams earned points for memorizing Bible verses, answering questions, singing the chronobridge song and competing in games, i.e.; tug-of-war, volleyball, basketball, water balloon toss, dragon tail, chicken chase, cowboy soccer, etc. The Buckaroos team, led by Capt. Emil and his team won the 40-foot banana split.
