We are pleased to feature Kindle Ranch on the cover of this issue. (L-R) Alison Boring, Eva Payne and Trina Harrison. Imagine a fully accessible, green inspired residential camp for children with chronic illnesses and disabilities and non-profit organizations serving special needs campers, and you’ve just brought the idea of Kindle Ranch to life. “There is a lack of recreational services for children faced with chronic illnesses and disabilities,” states Eva Payne, Executive Director, “So we saw the need to construct this ranch in our community. We can’t wait to roll out our plans for Kindle Ranch as well as share it with some of the non-profit organizations that will be using the space once its completed.”
Kindle Ranch is being developed to provide a place where non profits can gather to fulfill their specific program needs and where their campers could enjoy the therapeutic benefits of purposeful recreational activities and nature. “Since Kindle Ranch will be a result of community collaboration, it’s important that we identify dedicated partners to assist with the design, programming and fundraising for Kindle Ranch,” states Trina Harrison, Public Relations Specialist. “Our hope is that the community and beyond- bonds together to help us identify fundraising opportunities, volunteer opportunities and offer valuable resources to us through staff, board members and constituents. We want to break down the barriers for non-profit organizations and allow them to utilize our facility for their services,” states Trina.
Boston Scientific has awarded a grant to run a summer camp here in Santa Clarita Valley this summer. “We presented to them our plans and they demonstrated their belief in our organization by awarding the grant for this project,” states Trina. Kindle Ranch is proud to partner with National Multiple Sclerosis Society, Southern California Chapter2440, Kris’ Camp, National Kidney Foundation, Camp Dream Street, Urban Compass, on, Southern California Chapter, Casa Pacifica, The Help Group, Camp Kindle, Camp Keepsake, World’s Greatest Camp, Epilepsy Teen Retreat, Comfort Zone Camp.
A Kindle Ranch Kick Off Luncheon will be held on March 7 at 11 a.m. at the beautiful Hyatt hotel in Valencia. The luncheon will be for business owners, community leaders and members of non-profits who will be involved in the planning of Kindle Ranch. “We are hoping to meet individuals that are enthusiastic about the project,” states Eva. “We want to roll out our plans for Kindle Ranch and introduce the members of the community that will have an integral role in the project.”
