Description of Camp: Destiny Youth Ranch is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization in Alvord, IA that runs day-camps, overnight camps for girls and/or boys (ages 7-17), and family retreats where you can learn more about God and horses in a quiet, small-town atmosphere! 

We always have great speakers, worship, crafts, games, campfires, and of course... time with the horses! We teach very basic horsemanship (how to groom, tack, ride, and communicate with these amazing creatures), get comfortable with riding in an arena, and then get to hit the trail on over 45 acres of land! :) 

We are not affiliated with any specific church or denomination, but are a Faith-based organization.
