Our Mission/How we are involved with horses:
The mission of Nighthawk Ranch is to provide a safe, healing environment for 10-18 year olds recovering from cancer with the goal of increasing self-esteem and hope for the future. Every camper is assigned a horse for the duration of camp and learns to assist with the care of the horse including feeding, grooming and riding. Our team believes that human-animal relationships cultivate confidence, kindness, patience and teamwork.
