‘Into the Woods’ Youth Wellness Program

The Second Chance Cheekye Ranch (SCCR) was founded in 2016 with a clear mission: to rescue, rehabilitate, and rehome horses in need. Situated on 60 acres of coastal forest, the equine operations are fully nature-based, powered by solar energy and sustainably sourcing water from the Cheakamus River. With the tireless dedication of over 100 volunteers, SCCR upholds the commitment to the well-being of 90+ horses, donkeys, mules and pot-bellied pigs that have found their way to the sanctuary. Many of these volunteers have shared that the ranch, and being in the presence of horses, has rescued them from emotional pain.

It is this profound connection between humans, horses, and nature that inspired SCCR to launch the ‘Into the Woods’ Youth Wellness Program; a transformative initiative aimed at reconnecting youth with nature through equine-guided mindfulness practices. In today’s fast-paced world, where academic pressures and digital distractions abound, this program provides a safe and welcoming space for youth to explore mindfulness, nature immersion, and creative expression alongside the gentle equine partners. More than just a program, ‘Into the Woods’, represents a vision for the future, fostering resilience, creativity, and leadership skills through empathy and effective communication with horses. Tailored for ages 14-18, this program promises a holistic approach to youth well-being, nurturing a generation of compassionate and grounded individuals ready to face life’s challenges with strength and grace.
