On June 18, 2012, local area homeschoolers had the opportunity to attend a field trip to Jan-Kay Ranch in Detroit, Texas, about 20 miles east of Paris.
Attendees were guided on a tour throughout the camp by tour guide, Jay Carter, and saw many exotic animals including tigers, bears, rhinos, kangaroos, buffalo, donkeys, monkeys, and much more. Families enjoyed a picnic lunch following the tour.
Jan-Kay is a nonprofit Christian Retreat Facility that has been serving the Lord for over 30 years. In addition to offering day trips, they also host retreats & camps for groups of various sizes. Activities available include horseback riding, hayrides & campfires, special dinners, animal tours, & more. Jan-Kay provides the behind-the-scenes work for Church retreats, such as food service, and the Church brings their own counselors & speakers.
We are very thankful to Jan-Kay for allowing us to come out and tour their beautiful ranch. Please visit their website for more photos & information about their ministry.
