Our Family Days take place throughout the year at Candlelight Ranch. These special days are free events for families with children that face unique challenges and barriers to normal outdoor experiences. Family days provide families the opportunity to learn, explore and heal together in nature while having fun in a safe and supportive environment.

We left our phones in the car and just enjoyed nature and each other and will only get them out later for a picture- didn’t know how peaceful screen free would feel!

We loved making memories together.  We felt very special and enjoyed the kayaking on the lake, hiking and being together.

Wow, I didn’t think I would have ever tried kayaking. My granddaughters loved it too.  They worked together without arguing. I want to take them out to do this again, this experience has been so good for all of us.
