Destiny Youth Ranch is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization in Alvord, IA that runs day-camps, overnight camps for girls &/or boys (ages 7-17), and family retreats where you can learn more about God & horses in a quiet, small-town atmosphere! We always have great speakers, worship, crafts, games, campfires, & of course... time with the horses! We teach very basic horsemanship (like how to groom, tack, ride, & communicate with these amazing creatures), get comfortable with riding in an arena, and then get to hit the trail over 45 acres of land! :) We are not affiliated with any specific church or denomination, but are a Faith-based organization. Thanks for visiting! We hope to meet you soon. Be sure to like us on Facebook by clicking the link in the upper right hand corner of this page. Bless you!!

Ava is Jason & Corilee's granddaughter. She was diagnosed with ALL-Leukemia on May 1st of 2013. As of December of 2015 she will be on "maintenance" for 2 years.
We praise the Lord that she has done so well with treatments. Please join with us in praying that she will NEVER relapse!
