McCranie Quail Plantation
About This Camp
The Dodge County Quail Camp began the weekend of Jan. 28-29, 2012 with host McCranie Quail Plantation. However, the thought of a Quail Camp was planted in the heart of Pete Kracala after attending the inaugural 30-30 Ministries’ Camp in Twiggs County with his son Kevin the weekend of Aug. 27-29, 2011. Pete had hunted McCranie Quail Plantation several times in the past and thought the family would be a great one to host a Camp. He spoke with Brian & Marci McCranie and the wheels were turning.
In the beginning years, Camps were hosted at the McCranie Quail Plantation lodge. However, in 2018, the Camp’s lodging and meals moved to nearby Rustic Pines, while the hunting remained on McCranie Quail Plantation properties.
Since the inception, Quail Camp has always been a family affair. A number of McCranie’s—from kids to adults—have not only enjoyed serving in areas they are passionate about, but several of them have surrendered their lives to Jesus in the process.
Jeff and Zenda Horne
Jeff and Zenda Horne first saw a 30-30 Ministries’ Camp after receiving an invitation from Brian & Marci McCranie to help serve a meal at their Feb. 2-4, 2013 Quail Camp in Dodge County. From that initial Camp, Jeff and Zenda began to grow big hearts for serving inside of 30-30 Ministries. Jeff led his first 30-30 Ministries’ devotion on Feb. 7, 2014 at Quail Camp. From there, they escalated into regular volunteers.
Jeff and Zenda first took on the position as Camp Managers at a Dodge County Deer Camp hosted at Camp Stillwater the weekend of Oct. 24-26, 2014. Since then, they have operated as Camp Managers all over Georgia, and Jeff has even managed 30-30 Ministries’ Camps in South Africa. In the earlier years of managing camps, their two sons Brenden and Bowen often attended with them. They enjoyed bringing card games and playing with the Campers in between hunting and fishing hours.
Jeff and Zenda were married Aug. 25, 1990. Jeff was saved in 1987, and Zenda was saved in 1979. They attend Antioch 2 Baptist Church in Milan. Zenda was officially welcomed as a 30-30 Ministries’ Board Member on May 22, 2021.
