Mother-Daughter Weekend

October 11-13, 2019


Come spend a special weekend getaway at Mo with your daughter(s) ages 5-15! Get away from the busyness of life and all of its distractions to spend time together having fun outdoors. There will be tons of activities, and plenty of time to laugh, to have fun and to celebrate the special bond that mothers and daughters share. Just think! This means:

  • 4 meals you don’t have to cook
  • 3 days you don’t have to plan
  • 100% of your time devoted to your daughter(s)

Mother-Daughter Weekend participants will be housed in the historic Loma Linda Dorm (with newly renovated bathrooms—yay!). If you wish to stay in a hotel room, though, you can upgrade to that housing option. We look forward to the privilege of serving you this holiday weekend (Monday is Columbus/Indigenous Peoples Day), and to facilitating a special time for you to have together.

If you wish to extend your stay through Sunday afternoon and Monday, please let us know, and we can help you secure a separate reservation for that time.

The Mo-Ranch Staff will lead various components of the weekend. We look forward to serving you!


  • Kathy Anderson, Chaplain & Director of Programs
  • Richard Bombach, Director of Camps
  • Ellen Ludwig, Adventure Programmer & Assistant Summer Camp Director
  • Austin Grammer, Adventure Programmer & Assistant Day Camp Director
  • DJ Owens, Outdoor Education Ministry Manage plus the Outdoor Education Ministry staff!

More information coming soon!
