Mission and Vision
Roberts Ranch Purpose Statement: Provide a sustainable natural Hill Country Area for the education and enjoyment for all. The Mission of YMCA – To put Judeo-Christian principles into practice through programs that build healthy spirit, mind, and body for all.
A rugged 1,100+ acre property, northwest of San Antonio near Comfort. Existing youth & wildlife programs currently run, with more diverse programming under development.
In the late 1990’s Roberts Ranch was generously donated to the Y by the late Bob Roberts of Comfort. Mr. Roberts envisioned the ranch to be a place where families and children could gather to explore the outdoors in a beautiful Hill Country setting. The pristine habitat, native plants and wildlife make the ranch the perfect laboratory for learning about and exploring nature.
For years, the property has served hundreds of children through an outdoor education program sponsored by Texas Parks and Wildlife. Now, the YMCA is hoping to greatly increase the number of children and families served at the ranch through new programming intended to fulfill Mr. Roberts’ vision. Programs offered at the ranch include conservation and stewardship workshops, school groups, youth groups, group camping, guided hikes, fishing, and wildlife study.
TOURS/HIKES: Come explore on an adventurous guided tour! Types of Tours available:
• Public Tours (3-hour, 9am-12pm); Hiking Tours (4-hour, dates TBD); Youth Field Days
WORKSHOPS – Workshops are designed for adult learners interested in wildlife, land management and conservation in the Texas Hill Country (4-8 hrs).

VOLUNTEER OPPORTUNITIES – Outdoor Classroom Volunteer: Roberts Ranch offers opportunities for adults to support outdoor educational activities.
