This a special place where your son will learn the lessons of a lifetime. Every boy has dreamed of being a cowboy. Picture your son helping round up one thousand cattle on horseback near America’s breathtaking Yellowstone Park region! Stresses of today’s culture disappear as boys unplug from devices and learn important life principles in a unique, transformational approach. No Wi-Fi, cellphones, computers, or public TV allowed. With over 32 years of experience with boys (ages 10-17),Sunlight Mountain Cattle Ranch, LLC is unique in our approach to instill principles of family and love as well as the “Cowboy Code of the West” – an honorable, manly approach to life that is still alive and well in Wyoming. This approach is based on our strong Catholic faith, and we accept families from all traditions. We call this “Reality Therapy,” Your son will never be the same. Our experienced, caring, and committed staff provides strong academics and a trade school education. Our program does not enroll boys who are homeless, have criminal infractions, have intellectual disabilities or psychological problems, or who are orphans without a loving family.
FROM THE DIRECTORS:
“Through the love of Christ, we aim to educate the mind, strengthen the body, and elevate the spirit of each at-risk young man at Sunlight Mountain Cattle Ranch, LLC. Healing transformation begins when struggling young men recognize that life is sacred and discover their God-given talents in His wonderful Creation.” –Mickey & Mark Schneider
“I have been doing great since graduating from Sunlight Mountain! I was a little worried that when I got home, it would be hard to keep up my faith amidst all the bad influences of society, but I’m glad to say I’ve grown since I’ve been home because of what I learned with you. I miss Sunlight Mountain Ranch!”
While we cannot promise that every child will fully adapt to our program and the transformative effects it offers, should your son experience a relapse after successfully completing a full 12-month course with us, we are committed to welcoming him back for an additional 30 days of corrective counseling at no extra charge.
