There is power in numbers and value in knowledge shared.

Ranch Ehrlo Society first connected with Ontario child and youth mental health organization Lutherwood in 2013 at an invitational symposium on adolescent neuroscience and mental health.

Therapeutic camping program expands

Therapeutic camping program expands

Chitek Lake camp in 1980New grant funding has allowed for further development of Ranch Ehrlo’s therapeutic camping program.

The agency received a grant from the Ehrlo Child and Family Foundation to develop leased property at Chitek Lake for summer camping.

The Chitek Lake property was first leased by Ranch Ehrlo circa 1970. The space was used as a seasonal camping destination up until 2002, when significant vandalism forced the demolition of its cabins and closure of its campground. Now, years later, the Ranch is working to re-establish the remote destination as a traditional camping locale.

End of another season

End of another season

Outdoor hockeyThe Ehrlo Outdoor Hockey League (OHL) in Regina  held its year-end tournament on March 8 and 9th, celebrating yet another season of barrier-breaking community hockey.

“The weekend tournament was a great success with approximately 300 participants,” said Laura Logan, manager of Ehrlo Sport Venture. “It amazes me that even with limited times on the ice, the players improved immensely.”

For more than two decades, children and youth from across Regina have participated in the free recreational hockey league. The OHL has continued to grow since the beginnings in 1993, gaining momentum and prestige amongst the city’s youngest athletes.

This year, more than 300 girls and boys age eight to 18 played in the OHL. The league kicked off in the Queen City on Jan. 6, 2014, operating in seven inner-city communities throughout the city.

“It seemed ironic that after a season of extreme cold weather, we ended up with the warmest weekend for our annual indoor tournament,” said Laura. “Despite the bitter cold temps, rinks like Grassick Park continued to see kids attend with temperatures below -30 degree Celsius, and it often took a great deal of convincing to get them to go home!”

This year’s OHL success was due in part to the support and sponsorship received from RBC, the Richardson Foundation, KidSport, the Cooperators, the Regina Rebels, Hockey Canada, and many others. Tournament winner can be found on the Regina OHL page.

Registration and skills camp for the Ehrlo basketball League starts on May 6th at 7 p.m. at the Core Richie Neighbourhood Centre. Please call 306-751-2411 or email sportventure@ranchehrlo.ca for more details.
