KW Legacy Ranch at a Glance
Values Lived and Learned atKW Legacy Ranch
Enrolling your child in treatment and allowing someone else to care for your most prized possession will be one of the hardest things you will ever have to do. Understand that we don’t take this responsibility lightly. In fact, it keeps many of us up at nights thinking about your children like they were our own and trying to discover the best ways to help them. Our students follow a structured schedule for their daily activities. Please see how a normal day unfolds on the ranch. Hopefully this schedule, although incomplete, will help give you some comfort knowing what your child will typically be doing. Both our girls and boys program runs about the same with a few differences surrounding group and individual therapy sessions.
The beauty of a ranch is that there are always things to do. This can be a child’s paradise. We firmly believe in the tremendous value and benefits that teens derive from being outside, being physically active, learning new skills, being engaged in meaningful activities, and seeing their accomplishments at the end of the day.
With that in mind, we take great pains to balance our students’ daily life. Mornings start early with students waking up and getting immediately ready for the day. Animals have to be fed every morning and evening so that is one of the first chores that takes place. All meals are prepared with staff and students working together. Everyone will then sit down and eat breakfast together as a family. After breakfast it’s time to cleanup or to complete other group assignments. The rest of the morning can be spent in several different ways. Students can be involved in school, therapy, ranch projects, horsemanship, service projects, or a recreational activity such as a hike or outing.
Lunch is prepared by staff and students and everyone comes back to sit down and eat together again. After lunch is eaten and cleaned up, everyone is back out to one of the above-mentioned activities again until dinner.
Dinner is the same as breakfast and lunch with everyone working together to prepare, eat, and clean up. After dinner the animals are fed and watered again. Then it’s an opportunity for some free time. Free time can include working on homework, completing therapy assignments, writing letters to family, playing sports, playing games, etc. Every Thursday, the boys attend group therapy sessions with all clinical therapists on staff and every Friday the girls attend group therapy sessions.
Students will then begin preparing for bed and will start again bright and early the next day.
