  • Description

    Description

    Our Ranch for Children is a non-profit organization dedicated to providing outdoor and camp experiences to young adults and youth living with special needs and chronic illnesses. Children who attend camp will improve their self-esteem and confidence in a stimulating, supportive, empowering and fun environment, while ensuring their physical and emotional well-being.

    We are located in Mission on beautiful Stave Lake on a beautiful 40 acre property.

    During the off season (September - June,) we run retreats for rental groups (school groups, corporate events, weddings, etc) and facilitate outdoor education sessions.
