This is Who We Do it For
Zajac Ranch offers camps specifically designed for children and young adults who suffer from chronic, life-threatening, or debilitating conditions.
These camps provide a unique opportunity for participants to enjoy the outdoors while also fostering social and environmental awareness, building self-confidence, and cultivating positive attitudes towards physical activity.
Nestled on the shores of Stave Lake in the beautiful town of Mission, BC, Zajac Ranch spans over 40 acres of unspoiled forested land.Learn More About Zajac Ranch for Children
