To build cooperative relationships with local healthcare professionals and educators. To provide a place for parents of riders to form friendships with others who can relate to the daily challenges of raising a child with special needs.

The Wings of Eagles Ranch is so positively uplifting and inspirational! The children are always ready to learn new things and get involved with their groups for each week of camp. Some campers are constantly returning each year, some are new, but all of them fall in love with the camp at the end of the week. The counsellors are always positive, along with Mrs. Chris herself being the most optimistic and go-getter there. The work is sometimes very sweaty being outside all day, but being able to bring a smile to even one child's face is the only motivation needed to keep going. There's zip lining, flying squirrel, horseback riding, art, water games, low ropes courses, singing and dancing etc. volunteers even get a free t-shirt with the camp theme on them. It's great volunteer work for people that love children, want to work in occupational therapy, love the outdoors, and love to have fun! I've been volunteering for six years and it's the best decision I've ever made.
