Key Services Provided

The Ranch provides educational programming, equine therapy and leadership development training to youth at-risk and veterans in need. Wildwood also has state-of-the-art conference center accommodations perfect for corporate gatherings, retreats, camps, and more! 100% of the profits from our conference center goes straight towards scholarships for the youth we serve.

Key Audiences Served

We serve youth at-risk and veterans in need along with their families and make a 10-year commitment to the youth that we serve, working with them from age 8 to age 18. When our students aren’t on property, we rent out our facilities to conference center groups, as well.
