Volunteers Needed at Candlelight Ranch

Candlelight Ranch’s mission is to "provide a unique outdoor environment where children learn, play and heal through the wonder of nature and a number of innovative activities designed to build confidence and self esteem."  Candlelight Ranch serves special needs and at-risk children ages 6-18 and offer in Zip Lines, Low Ropes, Team Building, Equine Assisted Learning, Natural Science, Botany and Wildlife lessons, art therapy along with growing a vegetable garden and taking hikes in the hill country.  

At this time we are looking for volunteers to help with our equine program this summer.  Specifically we need people who are experienced with horses who can help guide the children through equine learning activities.   I am excited to announce that our Ranch Program Director, Lynnette Holtz, has recently completed her certification with EAGALA (Equine Assisted Growth and Learning Association), which allows us to expand our program even more.  

Please help me spread the word in the Travis County area.  We are hosting a training session May 30th.

Please join us for a hands-on Equine Assisted Learning Volunteer Session on Friday, May 30, 2014, 10:00 a.m. - 1:00 p.m.  Bring your own lunch.  Location:  Candlelight Ranch, 6408 Muleshoe Bend Trail, Marble Falls, TX  778654

RSVP to Krista, our volunteer coordinator @ Krista@candlelightranch.org
