Our Dedicated Staff

Wind River Ranch’s staff is dedicated to providing an experience for our guests to bring them closer to Christ and closer to one another. One way that we do this is minister to our summer staff who pour into our guests as well.

Make Friends That Will Last a Lifetime

To work on the summer staff of Wind River Ranch, you need to be between the ages of 18 and 24 for most positions and a hard worker. You will be hired for a specific job (see list below), but you will also have the opportunity to experience other areas of the ranch as well. Wranglers help out with housekeeping, the maintenance crew pitches in at the barn, everyone is on the dish schedule, etc. as we are strong believers in working together. Our hours are long, before breakfast until 8:30-9:30 pm every night, and the work is often hard. If it sounds challenging…it is but as our returning staff would tell you that the work is worth it! It will stretch you both physically and spiritually with lifelong memories that you will take home with you.

While we work hard, we also play hard. We typically have Saturday afternoon, evening, and Sunday morning off. During that time we will go into Estes Park to hang out, shop, eat, go hiking, go to the rodeo, stay at the ranch and swim, play basketball and volleyball, or any number of things. Our activities are always as a group, or a few small groups – playing together, as well as working together builds unity and strengthens the relationships within our staff. On Sunday mornings we sleep in a little bit, experience church together, and then get ready for the next group of guests to arrive at the ranch.

In addition to providing a wonderful experience for our guests, we hope that our staff grows in their relationship with Christ as well. We begin each morning with devotionals and a weekly worship night. These are amazing times to study God’s Word, grow one another, and pray together. God will change your life as you serve Christ by serving the guests of Wind River Ranch.

As a staff member of Wind River Ranch, you will eat very well and live in our comfortable living facilities. We have a strict policy of not pursuing romantic relationships with a co-worker or guest while working at Wind River Ranch. This is to keep the staff’s focus on serving the guests and growing in their own spiritual walk. We also do not allow tobacco, drugs, or alcohol to be consumed or used by our summer staff.
