Adult Service Corps – G24070411

Jul 21 – 27 2024

Adult Service Corps is one of the longest running programs that Ghost Ranch offers.

We are excited that you are considering Adult Service Corps for summer 2024!  ASC is an opportunity to help Ghost Ranch with our labor and spirit, and it includes a wonderful time for camaraderie and fun.  Our work is laced with laughter and good stories, sharing and communion. If this is your first time in the Corps, please know that you have a great week ahead of you; for the old-timers, the summer offers a time for much celebration and reunion!

ASC members volunteer a total of 22 hours of work to the ranch in exchange for reduced room and board (and a t-shirt)!  While work can often be outdoors and involves physical labor, we try to provide some indoor/ less active tasks for those who need them. Please also let us know if you have a physical condition which prevents you from doing some tasks; we want everyone to be safe throughout the week.

You should bring work clothes, a hat or visor for the sun, closed-toe shoes for outdoor work or in the shop, sunscreen, and a water bottle.  Please also bring your stories to share with all of us -the past few years have been challenging, and working together is one way we can process the changes in our lives. We look forward to seeing you this July. Feel free to email me at the address below with any questions you might have. 

See you this summer!

P.S.  Did we mention your week with ASC includes a Ghost ranch t-shirt and an end of week gathering?!

  • Art Myers

    I was first introduced to Ghost Ranch back in 1984. I was not able to participate in the many activities of the Ranch until after I retired. I found Adult Service Corps was an excellent way to contribute to the Ranches’ well-being while enjoying the wonderful scenery and the amazing people that I met. My Mechanical Engineering degree and do-it-yourself mentality fit nicely with Service Corps needs. When I return home after a session with ASC, I do so with a feeling that the Ranch is a little better off than it was, and I have an heightened sense of accomplishment.
