Discover Ring Lake Ranch - a special place of refreshment and recreation set high in the Wind River Mountains of Wyoming.The beauty of the mountains with their silent lakes, waterfalls, wildlife, birds and flowers beckons the soul to celebrate creation in quiet and wonder.Friendly horses, miles of hiking trails and fish-laden waters offer both the novice and experienced outdoors lover physical challenge as well as relaxation.
Stimulating seminars, thoughtful discussions, and informal interaction among guests and distinguished session leaders provide a unique educational opportunity and intellectual experience for all who seek a deeper understanding of God and themselves-lay persons as well as educators and ordained clergy.
Families may enjoy shared activities and also personal time.
Individuals are able to savor the opportunity for solitude as well as to participate in group activities. The community, including staff of about 12, averages between 25 to 45 each session. Everyone helps in doing simple chores-kitchen clean up and tidying our own cabins.
