Jan-Kay Hosts Field Trip for Homeschoolers

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.
