Welcome to Wildwood Ranch! Your child can experience horseback riding, canoeing, swimming, and many other exciting activities. They will also learn how to live in a community setting, meet new friends, learn new skills, spend their days immersed in nature, and experience life away from home in a safe environment. The summer camp experience builds self-esteem, teaches communication skills, and creates leadership opportunities. Lives are enhanced at camp. Careers are born at the camp. Lifelong friendships are kindled at camp. Register today to save your child’s spot!
Wildwood Ranch also offers an assortment of team-building opportunities on its grounds. Their outdoor enrichment activities include kayaking and canoeing on the private lake, playing a mixture of games with your peers, rock climbing, bouldering, archery, axe throwing, and much more. Your group can build its team itinerary based on its needs, whether it be increasing communication, working together, or building relationships.
Wildwood Ranch has facilities available for rent to organizations for weekend retreats or week-long camps. Wildwood is open year-round for retreats and conferences! However, from Memorial Day through the third week of August they limit rentals to weekends only.
They have hosted church youth groups, church board planning sessions, worship teams, girl scouts and boy scouts, leadership training seminars, class and teacher team building outings, outdoor education programs, band camps, college fellowship groups, and company picnics, just to name a few!
