2020 Youth Service Dates Announced

One of Ghost Ranch’s longtime missions has been to touch the lives of youth from all over the country and inspire service, connection, faith and fun. We are proud and honored to continue to offer experiences that young participants will remember forever and, hopefully, help to shape their worldview in a positive light. Please see below to learn about three opportunities for youth to be immersed in the quiet, great wide open of the ranch.

If you are interested in bringing a youth group for a unique experience, please contact Ben Ahern-Wild, Program Development Coordinator, or 505.322.7470.


 The Youth Service Corps program provides middle school and high school youth groups an opportunity to engage in meaningful service work. Youth work an average of twenty hours. Service work includes projects at Ghost Ranch and at least one day out into the greater northern New Mexican communities surrounding Ghost Ranch, providing enriching and engaging cultural educational experiences with opportunities for groups to participate in team building activities and outdoor adventure offerings during the week.

“The best thing you’ll do all summer, super fun, you’ll meet awesome people and grow spiritually.”

Growing up in our world today is no easy task. Young people are experiencing and inheriting many realities within our world that can be heavy and confusing. What does it mean to walk through and into these realities, especially as a person of faith?

The week will include time to pray and play together and to be in the magnificent beauty of Ghost Ranch and one another.

“It’s a time to deepen your faith and enjoy the fellowship of others.”
