Candelight Ranch - Lago Vista, TX (45 min from Austin)
Candlelight Ranch is a beautiful, hundred acre property in the Texas Hill Country. It was founded by the Barr Family of Austin, Texas, to serve as a setting for outdoor camp experiences for children with special needs. In addition to acres of rolling hills and easy lake access, the property offers thickly wooded canyons carved by spring-fed creeks and waterfalls. Facilities include a main cabin with bathroom and kitchen facilities; a shower and toilet block; a tree house; a fire pit; a playground; a zip line course as well as miles of hiking and nature trails. For more information please check out their website at http://www.candlelightranch.org.
The camp, which lasts for 3 days and 2 nights, costs $950 for up to five people. There may be up to three other families at the camp but on average we have two or three families in total. The price includes accommodation (in tents), a guided walk into the canyon, a two hour zip lining session (weather permitting), full use of the facility and all horse activities. The price does not include food. There is access to a full kitchen with a large fridge/freezer, oven, microwave, toaster, coffee maker etc.

Candelight Ranch even includes zip lines. For each camp on Saturday morning kids, families and volunteers get to zip line over the canyons.
