Quartz Creek Ranch is available January 1, 2017!
Every summer, the gates of Quartz Creek Ranch swing open for kids in trouble. Under the watchful eyes of life-long ranchers Willard and Etty Bridle, these ten to twelve-year-olds put their hands—and hearts—to good use, herding cattle, tending the garden, harvesting hay, and caring for animals.
