During the Getaway, your family will stay in a rustic lodge or cabin room. All meals are included so you have more time to relax. There will also be family-centered adventures including shooting, fishing, mountain biking, hiking, and horseback riding. The day will be rounded out by a campfire with fellowship, singing, and line dancing. Spiritual programming will also be available daily including: Mass, Confession, rosary walks, and discussions. When you arrive, our staff will meet with you to create a schedule for your stay based on your family’s interests and your children’s ages and abilities.

There will be a number of activities available each day both at the ranch and in the local area. Activities are organized by family, meaning that families choose and do the activity of the day together and are not split up. (The one exception to this rule is horseback riding – if a family has children who are too small to ride, they will have the option to participate in another activity with a parent back at the ranch.) At the beginning of each family’s stay, the COR staff will meet with each family to discuss the activity options and create a schedule for their time at the ranch. Options include hiking, horseback riding, archery, highline course, and lots more! All activities are included in the cost.

HORSEBACK RIDING: Children 8 and up can go horseback riding (younger ages may be allowed at the wrangler’s discretion). No prior experience riding is necessary. The typical ride is 1-2 hours long.

RANCH DEMOS AND HANDS-ON EXPERIENCE: Various demos and hands-on experiences will be available onsite at the ranch.

HIKING: Countless hiking trails for all ability levels can be found on the property and in the local area.

FISHING: Located right on the river, the ranch offers countless opportunities for excellent fishing.

SWIMMING AND PADDLE BOARDING: Our creek-fed swimming hole offers an opportunity to cool off and relax in the water.

MASS & THE SACRAMENTS: We strive to have daily Mass and regular opportunities for Confession and Adoration available whenever possible. There is a chapel onsite for the celebration of Mass and to repose and adore the Blessed Sacrament.
