Programs For Adults With Disabilities

Joy Ranch’s unique facility has been specially-designed to be barrier-free, providing the opportunity to welcome guests with a variety of special needs. We offer a number of programs for adults with both physical and cognitive disabilities.

Joy Ranch has the appearance of an old west town; you’ll feel like a real cowboy while you are here—but we won’t make you sleep under the stars. Our retreat or bunkhouse rooms are comfortable and accessible for your next vacation. We also offer day trips if you’re looking for a fun adventure.
