Zajac Ranch For Children
In 1999, Mel Zajac had a vision to build a ranch facility to provide camp experiences for children with chronic and life-limiting conditions throughout British Columbia and Canada. Zajac Ranch for Children, set within 44 acres of beautiful wilderness and western-themed camp facilities, rests on the shores of Stave Lake in Mission, BC. The ranch is conveniently located one hour east of Vancouver, BC, and can comfortably host 120 guests. In the summer months, Zajac Ranch for Children provides camps for children and young adults with chronic illnesses and disabilities. These experiences give participants the opportunity to explore the outdoors while developing greater social and environmental awareness, increased self-confidence and positive growth in attitudes towards physical activity.
