Kindle Ranch

Partners

Kindle Ranch would only be an idea without the various partners who are helping to bring this dream to reality. User Group partners will be the network of organizations and groups who will eventually utilize the space with their camp program. The Campaign Committee is a dedicated group of leaders who believe in the mission and vision of Kindle Ranch and are offering their time, talents, and/or resources to help not only raise the funds needed to build Kindle Ranch, but invaluable knowledge along the way. The Medical Advisory Team is a group of respected medical professionals are answering important questions on how best to build and operate the facility from a medical perspective, so the most important health needs of the user groups can be more fully met. The Donors help finance the construction and operation of the facility (monetary and in-kind) and are the made up of many small and large contributors from individuals, corporations, foundation and third party events. The Design Advisory Committee is a group of individuals and groups, which offer advice on program and facility design based on their area of expertise through serving those facing serious illnesses or life challenges.

User Groups

Kindle Ranch is being developed to provide a place where special camping programs can gather to fulfill their specific program needs and where their campers could enjoy the therapeutic benefits of purposeful recreational activities and nature. Each week during the summer months and throughout the school year a new group of campers will attend Kindle Ranch. Each camp program has its own camp name and special identity.

While at Kindle Ranch, each camp utilizing the facility recruits their own campers, volunteers, counselors and medical staff for their group. Kindle Ranch will work in partnership with these organizations providing specialized facilities, adaptive programming, specially-trained activities staff, medical staff supervision, food service, and subsidize over half the cost per person.

The Kindle Ranch staff is available to serve each user group. Kindle Ranch will serve these special camps in this unique setting by customizing its programming and auxiliary services to meet the needs of each of the different organizations. Our goal is to have each group truly feel that Kindle Ranch is their home away from home.

If you are affiliated with an organization that is interested in becoming a user group, please contact The Executive Director, Eva Payne eva {at} kindleranch.org or 661.257.1901
