Young Life's Washington Family Ranch is one of 25 Young Life camps in the United States and Canada. Young Life
is a non-denominational, Christian organization committed to impacting kids' lives and preparing them for the future. For more than six decades, Young Life has been introducing adolescents to Jesus Christ and helping them grow in their faith, while providing strong, positive influences in their lives.
Washington Family Ranch is located in the high desert of Central Oregon in a beautiful canyon, "miles beyond ordinary" as our tagline states. Washington Family Ranch runs two Young Life camps on its property. Canyon, the high school camp, opened in June of 1999. Creekside, the WyldLife (middle school) camp, opened in May of 2011. WFR has served tens of thousands of campers, leaders, volunteers, and guests since its opening.
During the summer months, Washington Family Ranch brings in hundreds of high school and middle school kids each week to tell them about Jesus Christ and give them the “best week of their lives!”
During the school year, Washington Family Ranch is available for churches, para-church organizations and other non-profit groups for weekend or weeklong camps, outdoor schools, retreats and seminars. Washington Family Ranch also hosts many other opportunities for churches and individuals throughout the school year.
