My favorite thing about our experience was all of the fun activities I was able to do with my family at NO COST. Canoeing, kayaking, sleeping in the tree house and fishing.  As a military family we really appreciate this chance to enjoy time together and in nature. Thank you!

Everything was amazing, we most enjoyed the zip lines. We loved petting, feeding and brushing the horses, Belle and Comet. The girls enjoyed learning how to fish.

We experience and benefit so much from just being together as a family and being outdoors. We laughed, played, supported each other and made new friends in the process. Thank you, Candlelight Ranch!
