Living Waters Ranch Field Trips

Public School, Home School, Civic Group, and Corporate Trips

Plan an exciting field trip for your students or employees to Living Waters Ranch! We tailor each field group to the specifications of the group. Field trips can include the Challenge Course for the older students and adults, while we offer a variety of activities for all ages!!

Schools have used field trips to the ranch to reward outstanding attendance, effort, grades, MAP scores, and end of the year outings. For the first time in 2011 we are offering our Missouri Day event on a limited basis. See the Missouri Day page for more information.

Birthday parties are also popular at the ranch. A variety of activities are available.

*Please note: LWR is a faith based organization with an emphasis on outdoor education. Therefore, we are able to meet the needs of secular home school families, public schools, corporations, and civic groups without reference to faith.

For church groups and faith based home schoolers we can incorporate biblical principles into our activities at your request.

Please call and visit with Joyce at 417-646-2694 if you have any questions about field trip opportunities.

Tearing Down The Strongholds

What would you say are the most important skills children learn today? Reading? Math? Science? While these are essential, there are other abilities just as important. Abilities like problem solving, cooperation with others, communication, perseverance, and leadership ensure success in the real world, also.

Our challenge course is appropriate for ages Kindergarten through senior citizens, as most challenges can be adapted to the age and abilities of the participants. So, not only will children and youth develop these important life skills, but our challenge course is a great way to get young people outside, away from TV and video games and explore/enjoy outdoor activities.  Our motto is ‘No Child Left Inside’!!
