A summer camp is trying to make a comeback after being blasted by the Memorial Day weekend floods of 2015. The camp received $250,000 for the John Knox Ranch from First Presbyterian Church San Antonio and Mission Presbytery.
The ranch hosts 500 children every summer.
“This is a real special place to me. I look around and see the beauty of the Hill Country. This brings back great memories. Saw many kids come to Christ here on this premises,” said Ron Scates of First Presbyterian Church.
“The goal is to rebuild a dining hall which is going to cost around $1 million,” said Ruben Armendariz of Mission Presbytery.
“It’s a significant step in the way forward as we think about rebuilding and building a new dining hall,” said Kathy Anderson, John Knox Ranch Executive Director.
