focusing your faith in an outdoor setting
WLD Ranch facilitates weekend retreats for a variety of groups, including youth groups, men's groups, women's groups, young adult and college groups, and children's ministries. WLD Ranch provides a peaceful setting for your group to build connections, renew commitments, and explore God-given purpose. Our retreats allow you to come away from the routines of life in order to focus your attention on things that matter.
We provide the facilities (for lodging, dining, meeting, and recreation), the meals, and we offer our activities at scheduled times (horses, challenge course, archery, riflery, sledding, etc.). You are responsible for your program, speaker(s), and chaperones. These arrangements allow you to focus on your group while we provide the setting for your ministry to take place. We would like to come alongside you to be a resource for carrying out your ministry. Here is what one youth leader had to say recently:
"Thanks so much for all your work as well as the work of the crew. I have enjoyed building a tradition with WLD and our group. Thanks for all your kindness, willingness to help, and just the atmosphere provided. Keep up the great work, and if there is any way we can help you all just let us know. If I don't see you earlier, I will see you next year in November!"
(Adam Harper, Chapel Hill Church, Nov. 2010)
A typical weekend retreat* begins Friday evening and lasts through Saturday evening or Sunday lunch. We offer several retreat packages to match your group needs. Our facilities provide space for your group's meetings and activities. Our grounds offer outdoor activities for your leisure time. Our staff facilitate recreational outdoor activities, teambuilding challenges, and horse riding for your enjoyment, growth and development, and relationship building.
For more information, you can download the Retreats Brochure and the Retreat Guidelines. Let us know if you have any questions, would like to schedule a tour of the facility, or would like to check on available dates for your retreat.
*Weekday retreats or other retreat formats may be available by special arrangement. Please contact us with your idea.
