Class from Robert’s school visits the ranch

Summer Programs*

Cristo Rey Ranch staff and volunteers are excited about our programming for summer.  We are offering fantastic opportunities for groups and individuals of all ages to interact at the ranch.

Our animals (sheep, goats, llamas, emu, donkeys, rabbits, horses, pot-bellied pigs, dogs and much more) too are excited and waiting for your visit.  They hope to see you soon.

Custom Programs

We offer custom tours for groups to meet your schedule.  We will customize the opportunity specifically for you and your group.  It can be as simple as walking, watching and enjoying our animals or much more interactive with opportunities to touch, feed and walk them.
