We are very sad to announce that we have decided to cancel the Marias Valley Rodeo Bible Camp for this year. There were a number of factors that led to this difficult decision particularly with all of the schedule challenges with many that have arisen over the last few months. We are thankful for all of the support and prayers for this event and we will look towards doing it in 2021!

Marias Valley Rodeo Bible Camp seeks to provide an opportunity for participants, from beginners to experienced, to develop, learn, and excel in their chosen rodeo events. Through our skilled instructors and volunteers, we help participants to grow in their excellence and integrity inside and outside of the rodeo arena
