I started volunteering at Teen Ranch when I was 14. I worked in the kitchen and eventually did bunkhouse leading of kids that came to camp. The way Teen Ranch is run not only makes it the most fun for the kids but also taught me so much about being a leader, learning more about God, and finding friends I still have today that encourage me. I will definitely send my kids here!

If you are new to Teen Ranch or have never heard about us here is an introduction of who we are and what we do.
In 1961, Mel Stevens went to Australia with his first wife, Janet, and baby boy, Tim along with four other couples from a gospel music group to start Teen Ranch Australia. Mel and Janet directed the camp there drawing no wage for six years before returning to Canada to start a Teen Ranch Canada. With 10 dollars in their pockets, two more children and faith in God’s leading and proven goodness, the Lord provided. The Lord continued to be faithful in Mel's life when Janet got cancer and eventually passed away at the age of 49. In 1985 Mel remarried to his now wife Betty. They both continue to live happily on site at Teen Ranch Canada.
What you see and experience here today is a result of the faithfulness and obedience of this couple and their family to start Teen Ranch Canada which has been operating for over 45 years. The first summer camp started in 1967 with 6 kids and has now grown to 130 per week. There are also now Teen Ranches in Scotland, France, Romania, Poland, Kenya and Indonesia.
Besides summer camps, Teen Ranch is host to weekly school groups, church groups, business people, soccer and hockey teams - local as well as Olympic, International and NHL teams. Our summer camps offer horse, hockey, soccer, BMX, and extreme camps
This place is here for you to enjoy and we trust you will sense God’s presence and goodness while you are here. So if you've never heard of us or been, feel free to contact us and book a tour! We would love to connect with you.
