If your child is planning a future trip to Washington Family Ranch or is here right now, we want you to have the information you need to rest easy while he or she is away. There are many activities at camp in which your child may be participating. Whether they are challenged on the ropes course, playing in the skate park or spending time in the game room, their safety is our top concern.

Safety

Young Life and Washington Family Ranch maintain the highest level of safety standards in operation of all our activities at camp.

All of Washington Family Ranch's challenge course elements are inspected annually by a registered Preferred Vendor Member of The Association of Challenge Course Technology. All elements are operated and supervised by our staff who have been fully trained and certified to do so, ensuring your child's comfort and safety.

Canyon's waterfront program and Canyon Cars are also facilitated by trained and experienced lifeguards and staff. Your child will be in good hands while at Washington Family Ranch.

​For Summer 2021:​ Campers, volunteers and staff will participate in camp as cohort groups, with masks, distancing and daily screening. Events and meals will be hosted in outdoor spaces with ample distancing or in indoor spaces with increased ventilation and reduced capacity.

Accessibility

We welcome kids of all abilities to our camps. At Washington Family Ranch, all of our main buildings are accessible to strollers or wheelchairs, and we have a handful of cabins that are designed to be accessible (special housing needs may be requested by your child's trip leader).

Walkways around camp are paved. We will also do our best to help every guest participate in activities. We want every kid to have the best week of their life as they come to camp!
