We’ve created a clean, modern, home-like ranch for troubled youth designed specifically to make boys feel welcome and at home. Here young men learn the value of doing difficult things and find confidence as they learn to trust themselves as they earn the trust of their horses.
Whether underperforming or struggling to achieve academically, our young men receive personal attention from experienced, credentialed teachers in real classroom setting. Students learn valuable learning skills often neglected at traditional public schools.
We’re located in the heart of Southern Utah’s color country – the gateway to Zion National Park, Bryce Canyon, Lake Powell and minutes from 3 State Parks. We use our unique environment to engage the body and the mind with experiential therapy & purposeful outdoor adventure.
Our unique focus on young men and the exceptional setting of our outdoor environment and experiential therapy offer better outcomes. Students return healthier, happier, and ready to thrive and succeed.
We believe that each student can learn to make new choices and find a happy, healthy and meaningful life.
Exciting activities such as mountain biking, hiking, river rafting, rock climbing, boating, horseback trail-rides, and even fishing are used to teach valuable life lessons in a way that connect with the boys and translate to insights which help them overcome personal issues and improve family relationships.
