This is a real ranch, with real dangers.

If you’re hosting an event inside the Campus (in the office building or immediately adjacent fenced areas) or at the Sprinkle Retreat Center (in the fenced area surrounding the house), your event will be in a very safe environment.

However, if your event extends past the fence line into our extended trail system or to our back field, the risk is higher. You are responsible for your own safety — so be smart.

Be careful, you will be potentially exposed to these hazards:

  • Plants like poison oak, poison ivy, large thorn bushes, and brush nettle.
  • Fire ants, wild boar, bobcats, snakes, wasps, coyotes, rats, scorpions, and more.
  • Dangerous objects and hidden hazards like sharp metal, barbed wire, falling/loose branches, sudden drops, and cliffs.
  • Tools, poisons, and other farm equipment used for the ranch’s maintenance.

You must abide by the Campus Rules or the Sprinkle Retreat Center Rules during your time here.

You can print out copies of the Campus Rules and the Sprinkle Retreat Center Rules for reference.

You are responsible for yourself while at the ranch and all guests must sign a waiver. There is no safety staff on site. In case of emergencies, call 911 immediately.
