Our Mission:

Our Mission at Cowpokes for Camp Is to Inspire, Develop and Enrich Rural Young People to Reach Their Fullest Potential As Confident, Responsible Caring Members Of Society In Agriculture And Equine Education. Cowpokes for Camp started with that 1 Singular Simple thought and works on the Premise that 1 Simple Act of Kindness makes the difference in a Deserving Child’s Life. That Singular thought was: Today’s Deserving Children are the future to Preserving our Agriculture, Farms, Ranch’s, and Rural Life. That Simple Act of Kindness is the Creation of Cowpokes for Camp Foundation. If we can inspire and educate a child in the importance of Agriculture, Animal, and Equine Sciences, then that child will make a difference. They will make a difference in everyone’s lives, not just their own. Just think for a minute, if just 10% of the kids we reach with our scholarships become passionate and continue with their education in Agriculture, Animal or Equine Sciences one of them may just become the scientist that invents a break though crop saving invention for our farms, what if they become a Large Animal Vet that discovers the cure for Equine Colic, saves a Species from extinction, or what if they discover a way to never make a well run dry? It takes 1 Deserving Child to become Great and Make a Difference in all our Lives.
