Rent the Ranch


Zajac Ranch, 41 acres of beautiful wilderness and western-themed camp facilities, rests on the shores of Stave Lake in Mission, BC. The ranch is conveniently located one hour east of Vancouver, BC, and can comfortably host 100 guests.

Zajac Ranch for Children offers many varying activities including: horseback riding, rock climbing, canoeing and kayaking (dependent upon Stave Lake water levels), archery, a high ropes course, low ropes team building course, and lesson plans in orienteering, wilderness survival, and gold panning. Other activities that groups can take part in include swimming in our beautiful pool facility, using our amphitheater for self-led skits or talent shows, playing basketball in our gymnasium and/or using our full sized sporting field for soccer or baseball.
