What to
Expect

Adventure Activities
Go on a sunrise horseback ride, bike on a backcountry trail, raft on a wild river, or cruise down a massive lake slide, whatever challenge you choose will be a grand adventure. At JH Ranch, every thrilling activity, from the rodeo games and the giant “Screaming Eagle” swing to zip lines and climbing walls, sets the tone for a life-changing week with your loved one. Empowering lessons of teamwork, communication, and leadership are naturally incorporated into each activity, instilling biblical principles in the most practical and applicable ways possible.
Legendary Hospitality
Savor the last bite of a buttery biscuit. Sip on a craft coffee beverage. Swap stories over a homemade meal. At JH Ranch, dining is such a delightful experience, it’s almost the main event. Our guests share most meals in a gorgeous, open-air pavilion that is truly a feast for all the senses. Original recipes, fresh flavors, and gracious hospitality combine to create a tasty experience for everyone.
Lakeside Chats
During the afternoons, we invite parents to attend special lakeside sessions. These JH Parenting talks are designed to help parents and teens effectively navigate the transitions from adolescence to adulthood. While soaking in beautiful views and sampling gourmet hors d’oeuvres, parents are equipped with invaluable insights on building stronger and healthier relationships with their children.
Big Top Talks
Every evening, we host a fun community-wide gathering in the “Big Top.” Each night is filled with great music, powerful moments, and inspiring talks. These sessions are a wonderful opportunity for our guests to discover their purpose, experience God’s love, and connect with others in a beautiful setting unlike any other.
A Happening Place
A refuge in the middle of a remote forest, the JH Ranch spans nearly a thousand acres in the Northern California wilderness. Just down the road from a small mountain town, it is surrounded by incredible views of rambling rivers, snow-capped peaks, and wide-open meadows. With unparalleled access to the Russian Wilderness, Pacific Crest Trail, and Klamath River, it is ideally located for all kinds of outdoor adventures from back-country hikes to whitewater rafting excursions. This special place feels almost like heaven on earth.
