  • Children will visit the Be Brave Ranch a total of four times over a 12-month period.
  • The first visit is 28 days long.
  • The three subsequent visits are 14 days long and staggered throughout the year.
  • In between stays, children will work with their therapist on an outpatient basis via weekly group teleconferences.
