Mother-Daughter Weekend

October 9-11, 2020


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. 

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.

Richard Bombach, Director of Camps

Richard’s calling has always been camp. After working in the Texas camping industry for 14 years, camp is not just a job to him—it’s a culture and way of life.

He and his wife, Jessica, met at summer camp when they worked as camp counselors together. He later proposed to her at camp and had a former camp director officiate their wedding ceremony.

The couple now has two beautiful daughters who are future Mo-Ranch summer campers.


Austin Grammer, Assistant Director of Camps 

Austin was first introduced to the camp world as a camper of the John Newcombe Tennis Ranch in New Braunfels, Texas. Affter spending his summer at camp before his junior year of college, he decided that he wanted to pursue camp ministry as a profession.

At Mo, Austin enjoys working with some of the most passionate camping professionals that he has ever encountered. He is inspired by their passion and drive, and he loves that everyone is dedicated to making each summer better than the last.


DJ Owens, Outdoor Education Ministry Manager

DJ lives, breathes and bleeds Mo-Ranch, and has done so since his first day at Mo in 2009. He is an Oklahoma transplant, and is so glad that he gets to call Mo his home!

DJ worked at Mo for eight years — both in summer camp and outdoor education ministry — and knows every inch of the property.

He enjoys seeing the smiling faces of his co-workers anytime he steps into a building and relishes in the excitement of guests as they arrive on the ranch and loves Mo’s capability to amaze and change the lives.


Kathy Anderson, Chaplain

Rev. Kathy Anderson first came to Mo-Ranch over 30 years ago, but her connection with Mo runs deeper than that.

Her grandparents were involved in the early development of the ranch — her grandfather helped built some of the original sleds for the slide — and they both were longtime volunteers during the tenure of Otis Moore.

Kathy has been a pastor for 20 years, and has served on the pastoral staff of Mt. Washington Church in Cincinnati, Ohio, and Westminster Presbyterian Church in Austin. She also served in the mission field as a young adult volunteer in Guatemala and was the executive director of John Knox Ranch, the camp and retreat center of Mission Presbytery.
