Weekend gatherings for middle school youth.

November 15-17, 2019 or November 22-24, 2019

Gather with your friends at Joy Ranch for the weekend.

Get ready for an adventure in faith in the new frontier of Joy Ranch. Stay in JR's Bunkhouse, enjoy Root-beer floats and games in the Thirsty Boot Saloon and hang out in Wild Bill's Game Room. You will be spending the weekend with the amazing Joy Ranch staff, adults from your church and peers from around South Dakota. You don't need to pack along your boots and cowboy hats for this wild west adventure, but they are certainly welcome.
