Our Roundups: Special Opportunities for our Guests

Our Roundups are open to children and families free of charge.  We strive to Mentor Children, Strengthen Families, Share Hope, and Inspire Service.  

We serve those that have been through loss, military service, adoption, medical hardships and others desiring to strengthen and enrich their family. Click here to learn more about Our Mission.  We wish to provide a safe and positive place for children and families to experience hope and encouragement.

While we do not wish to turn anyone away, there are a limited number of Roundups available each month.  Please check our Event Schedule for dates.  You may apply on-line or print the form and mail it in. The Roundup Coordinator will contact you with more information and to confirm your reservation. Please refer to our “FAQ – Frequently Asked Questions” page for further information.

Our activities vary, but may include cleaning stalls, grooming horses, milking goats, filling troughs, gardening, and numerous other needs.  All activities are weather dependent and are chosen at the discretion of the Wrangler.  Because we have activities that can be done inside, we typically do not cancel sessions due to weather.  Look at our Photo Gallery to see us in action.  

All programs are free of charge.  If you have an interest in supporting our Guided Hope programs, please go to our donate page for more information!  

We look forward to having you here!

Junior Roundups!  These programs are for children and teens, 6 years of age and older who desire to learn, serve, and have fun in the country!  They will be paired up with a Wrangler Mentor who will work alongside them as they do chores and spend time with the animals.   We require that a parent or legal guardian remain on-site.  Times are posted on our calendar page.  

Roundup Camps:  Each camp week is three days in a row, Wednesday and Thursday from 9:30 – 11:30 a.m., followed by a Friday evening, from 6:30 – 8:00 p.m. (Some weeks offer 6:00 – 8:00 p.m. on Wednesday and Thursday.) Friday nights are a time to invite extended family to show what they’ve learned and have a fun Gymkhana event.  Please click on “Guest Roundups” for more information and to apply.

Family Roundups!  These programs are open to all ages!  Bring your whole family for a time of learning, serving, and fun!  We rotate between chores, horseback riding, and exciting team-building country games with our Wrangler crew!  Times are posted on our calendar page. (Other appointments may be available upon request.)

Junior Wrangler Leadership Camp!  This unique program is for students, 12-18 years of age (7th grade and above), who desire to learn, serve, and have fun in the country!   Apply as a Wrangler online under “Volunteer.”  This is designed for those teens who desire to learn leadership and safety skills to eventually apply for our Wrangler team and work with our Roundup guests.  We will spend time doing chores, learning about the animals, grooming horses, learning basic horsemanship skills, and share in a Bible devotional time together.  Parents are required to come to the first session for one hour and may remain at the ranch to serve during each additional session, as desired.  Each student is expected to attend all three days of one of the sessions.
