We can’t do it without you!
We are so grateful for all the volunteers who attend these important programs! Your selfless effort yields immediate results and leaves everyone feeling proud of what they’ve accomplished. Your combined hours save us thousands of dollars in labor costs, and most importantly help keep our program tuition prices down!
We hold service programs twice a year:
Spring Service Weekend
May 26-29, 2023
Memorial Day Weekend
Adults = $49; Youth = $39
There are a wide variety of projects that need attention to get the A/U Ranches ready for summer, so you can always find a project that fits your interest or skill set. There are two work sessions on Saturday, and one on Sunday afternoon. There are indoor and outdoor projects, and they typically include:
- window washing
- organizing/office jobs
- kid specific projects
- and more…
The weekend is not all work. Participants enjoy making new acquaintances, reconnecting with friends, utilizing the ranch facilities at the end of the day, playing games, taking hikes, attending church/Sunday school and enjoying the incredible surroundings.
Fall Service Day
October 14, 2023
Adults and Youth $35
This focused day of work is a little different than the spring program. We all work together on Saturday on one common project to get the A/U Ranches facilities ready for winter. The project varies from year to year but is appropriate for most ages (kids can participate – there are no separate kids programs).
Although all the work happens on one day, you’re welcome to arrive after dinner on Friday night, and stay through Sunday morning. (Saturday breakfast, lunch and dinner and Sunday breakfast will be provided.)
How you can help
There are a number of ways you can participate in a Service Program:
- Physically come to the A/U Ranches to lend a hand to our cleanup efforts. You’ll play a big part in sprucing things up while enjoying some fantastic company!
- Send money to support a specific project or for general maintenance – flowers, paint, etc. Donate
- Donate a needed item on the A/U Ranches Wish List.
Be sure to check out the Adult and Family Programs 101, so you know what to bring to make the most of your experience at the A/U Ranches.
