Over the years thousands of families have passed through Deer Valley Ranch experiencing the incredible resources and infrastructure the ranch has had to offer. It has been an area of pride and honor and not to mention a demonstration of hospitality, giving our guests and cabin owners an exceptional experience. Over the years, age has taken its toll on a number of our facilities, and improvements need to be considered.
When Project 2411 Ministries purchased Deer Valley Ranch in April of 2016, our team’s mission was to bring impactful life change to families. To allow their experience here at the ranch and the love of Jesus Christ to permeate every area of their lives. Our goal has always been excellence, and we believe it is one of the direct ways we show the love of Jesus every day to those around us. Our Lord showcased this by giving his most prized possession, his very own Son for us. It has always been a priority for us to always bring our very best to our ministry.
Deer Valley Ranch has a comprehensive plan to take on much needed capital improvements to our infrastructure. One of the first steps in this process is regarding our athletic and sports facilities located just west of the barn complex. Critical repairs are needed on this facility or the infrastructure will be lost forever.
About a year ago, Dave met Randy Resley, owner of Sport Court of The Rockies in Denver. Through a blessed series of events and conversations, a brand new Sport Court will find a home at Deer Valley Ranch. The installation of the Sports Court will take place this winter and allow us to showcase this new asset to our ranch guests for the summer 2018 season.
This facility is a multi-use court system that will include the installation of a brand new surface, custom painted with DVR logos, two NBA-quality basketball hoops, and a full tennis, badminton, pickle ball, and volleyball net system. Not only will the sport court be an invaluable addition to our summer programming, it will also allow our retreat groups and expeditions to enjoy another engaging layer of Deer Valley Ranch.
We are thankful for our donors and the blessing of the Lord that has allowed us to pursue this great new improvement to the ranch. The sport court is only the first step in an exciting journey towards creating an exceptional state-of-the-art guest ranch and adventure basecamp. Be sure to follow the regular construction updates on our social media platforms, and we look forward to seeing you and your family as we enjoy this new addition in early spring, 2018.
