Candlelight Ranch delivers creative, hands-on programs and nature-based activities in a beautiful Hill Country setting. Partnering with community groups, nonprofits and schools, the Ranch provides interactive learning programs and experiences that are customized to meet the specific needs of the youth and families served.

There are thousands of ways for children and families to learn, explore and heal at the ranch through our creative and nature based programs.
Three zip lines pass through a tree canopy and over a beautiful grotto with natural springs and hiking trails. When not grazing, the ranch’s horses, Rusty and Comet, provide a great canvas for painting, as well as therapeutic and educational interaction. ‘Chillville’ is an accessible replica of our beautiful Hill Country creeks, a place where Ranchers can play in the water and enjoy a refreshing experience. Carolyn’s Canyon Crawl, a high cable crossing over the Ranch’s grotto, builds confidence – and is a thrilling experience! There are thousands of ways for children and families to learn, explore and heal at the ranch through our creative and nature based programs.
