Hiking, canoeing, zip lines, camping, and outdoor activities are usually not a part of the lives of most young people today, but they are with the boys at The Ranch for Boys. God’s great outdoors is a great place for each of us to connect with each other and with God. It is through these fun outings that we so often are able to get the root of the issues in a student’s life. It’s an easy place to talk and share hurts and pains; then the campfire that evening give opportunity to sit around and talk and pray for one another. These trips are memory makers that last a lifetime.
We are committed to taking every student on exciting outings, from ocean and river fishing to camping and hiking. Of course, the boys also have the horses to ride and so many activities on our campus. But we also take the boys periodically to our property in Western North Carolina to enjoy the Great Smoky Mountains, the Appalachian Trail and numerous rivers and streams. While there, the boys enjoy hiking, fishing, camping and whitewater rafting.
