About the Young Life Property

Washington Family Ranch, owned and operated by Young Life, is located in the beautiful high desert of Central Oregon. Washington Family Ranch is composed of two camps and a ranching operation: Canyon, a high school camp, which opened in 1999; Creekside, a middle school camp, which opened in 2011; and Muddy Ranch.

During the summer, Young Life campers experience the "Best week of their Life!" and during the school year, Washington Family Ranch is available to groups for church retreats and seminars.






  A ranch devoted to stewarding the land, livestock, wildlife, and water to the best of our abilities. A ranch pursuing and maximizing the perfect resources that God created.
