WINTERFEST (February 16, 2020)

Every winter, we hold a free community event called Winterfest. This is an opportunity for us to give back to the surrounding communities. We run a lot of different events, and depend on our full-time staff and volunteers to make them happen.


Throughout the year, we need volunteers to help with everything from the Kitchen, Barn Store, Adventure Courses, Horse Programs, and more.  We provide meals as well as housing if need be for the weekend.



There are many projects that need to be done around the Ranch. Bring a group or come by yourself to help get things done!  If you have a passion or skill for painting, constructing, or cleaning we can find the right fit for you and your group.



If you have some time, we can use you! Come out to the Ranch, and we’ll put you to work!

If you are interested in any of these opportunities please contact Abiah at abiah@cranhillranch.com.

Volunteer with us Today!


CranHill is looking for groups of people from churches, youth groups, and families to partner with us as volunteers on a weekly basis throughout the summer. These volunteers will be working behind-the-scenes to help support, encourage, and provide a pathway for the mission of transforming lives into the image of Christ.
This is a unique missions trip opportunity that is LOCAL, AFFORDABLE, and COMMUNITY-MINDED, as you SERVE shoulder to shoulder with other
believers to leave a lasting IMPACT.

Only $99/person to help cover the cost of meals and lodging. Did you know the average mission trip in the United States costs $700-$1000? Think of of how much your financial giving can be stretched!

The majority of our youth campers and families come from the West Michigan and surrounding areas, so your efforts will impact those directly in your

Work in support roles, such as kitchen, maintenance, housekeeping, programming, activities, and more. Your behind-the-scenes work will help to encourage and provide a pathway that will foster eternal transformation in the lives of those we serve.

Our desire is that you leave this week challenged, changed, and that your faith will be more deeply grounded in joyfully serving the Savior. Your acts of service will not only support the transformation of others into the image of Christ, but through service, you will experience the power of Christ at work within you.

To bring your group this summer, contact Abiah at abiah@cranhillranch.com


Each summer, we offer multiple weeks of Friendship Camp for the mentally impaired. Our goal is to reach out to these special campers with God’s love and compassion in an outdoor camp setting.


As always, these will be great weeks filled with hugs, smiles, and lots of lessons for us all. Friendship Camp is always in need of volunteers to serve God, by working with amazing people that attend these camps!
