SALMON, ID – Lemhi River Cowboy Church hosted their first ever Rodeo Bible Camp at the Lemhi County Fairgrounds March 25-27. The camp was for kindergarten through high school kids who wanted to learn or improve their rodeo skills. The church chose to do it before the high school rodeo season started so the kids could have the opportunity to get themselves and their horses ready for the season. They focused on horsemanship, barrels, poles, goat tying, calf roping, and team roping. When they were not in their rodeo clinic, they could do leatherwork, tie dye t-shirts, braid, rope, or just hang out with friends. It culminated with a community dinner, cowboy church, the rodeo, and the awards presentation on Sunday. The kids had a great time and the Lord was working in a mighty way.
