An Immersive Educational Center:

The Reading Ranch is off-the-grid, giving students a chance to unplug from technology and reconnect with themselves and their friends. The new facilities will allow our students to focus on improving literacy skills in a comfortable and safe setting.

Upon Completion of the Reading Ranch:

We will be able to serve an additional 100 children per summer with literacy education in the outdoors!

Help us Double our Reach:

Since 2011, BookTrails has served over 1,500 with literacy education at the Reading Ranch. We are now ready to grow and provide this experience for even more children for years to come.
