Our vision is to provide amazing experiences for youth in a loving, supportive, fun, and inspiring environment. We want to “welcome little children” (Mark 9:37), and to help them see and experience God’s love-in-action. We seek to provide an inclusive and welcoming place “where you belong”, and to have a meaningful and lasting impact on the lives of our campers and guests. In short, our vision is to love people (kids, and all our neighbors).
OUR CORE VALUES
A love for kids, God, each other, horses, and nature and the desire to help inspire young people shines through in all our staff members. “Loving others as ourselves”, as Jesus taught, is our most important value and guides everything we do.
We treat youth and all our guests with dignity, value and respect and will show them amazing ranch hospitality. We strive to make all kids and guests feel welcome and create a place, “where you belong”.
Best staff, best programs, best facility. We aim high to serve you with excellence in all we do: from the leadership qualities, kindness and care of our staff, the quality of our programs, the quality, cleanliness and safety of our facility, the “fun-factor” and breadth of our activities, the quality of our food, our attention to detail, and so on. We don’t cut corners. “Always be outstanding in the work of the Lord, knowing that your labor is not in vain.”(1 Cor 15:58).
Camp is all about fun, and we want our guests to experience fun, laughter, and the joy of life so we dial up the fun factor to 10, in everything we do.

Duane & Katie Bleakney
The Bleakney family is heading into Summer 2023 with over 10 years of professional camping experience. But that’s not what it’s all about. They love seeing lives transformed as well as seeing kids and teens acquire life skills. One of their favourite pastimes is horseback riding and competing in speed events such as Barrels and Pole Bending. Whether they are ranching, horseshowing, or hanging out in a hockey rink you will find their 4 lovely children alongside or nearby. Ethan, Eli, Myra, and Riggs love being part of Ranch life and are continually creating friendships with wonderful children as each week of the summer goes by.
Born and raised in Ontario, Rosy moved to New Brunswick in 2018 to join the team full-time. She loves all the seasons at the Ranch, whether it's flying along in a horse-drawn sleigh over fresh snow, admiring the vibrant fall colours, or watching trees bud and flowers bloom. But most of all, she loves summer, because that's when the camp is alive with campers and it's all about fun, silliness, and joy! Going into Summer 2023, Rosy's looking forward to another summer of getting to know campers and being a part of making camp the best time of year for all our campers!
