The Gress Mountain Ranch is a 501(c)(3) that serves as a sanctuary (“forever home”) for abused and neglected animals, both domestic and exotic. The ranch is home to more than 70 animals that are utilized to provide therapy, education and volunteerism opportunities to disabled, at-risk, low-income and underserved populations. The mission of the organization is to foster the mutual well-being of both people and animals by intertwining their lives through nurturing, learning, fun, and healing.
Enjoy a fun-filled week on a real working ranch! Activities include horsemanship, donkey cart rides, alpaca-felting, scavenger hunts and more! Learn the care and feeding of pigs, donkeys, goats, alpacas and horses. Shadow a real veterinarian. Learn about responsible pet ownership and build your leadership skills. Daily themes include Team Work and The Spirit of Volunteerism. On the final day, we’ll celebrate with a lunch party and a day of games.

Put “Ranch Camp” in the subject line.
The Gress Mountain Ranch is a sanctuary where abused and neglected animals are given life-long care to recover and thrive. In turn, the animals become therapy animals and have a big job to help people learn to improve their self-worth, communication skills, and learn respect for all livings beings.
