You are most cordially invited to schedule a tour of our Main Campus and Outdoor Wilderness Learning (OWL) Center. We welcome you anytime to see firsthand the ministry you provide to Louisiana’s abused and neglected youth.
A tour of the Main Campus takes about 1.5 to 2 hours. We will tour the 40 acres by visiting the buildings and can meet some of the staff. A sampling of what you would see is: a look in a classroom at Howard School where youth receive accreditation for a GED, the residences, CAB Program, Emergency Shelter, recreation areas, swimming pool, counseling center, chapel, and the vo-tech building currently under construction.
A tour of the Outdoor Wilderness Learning (OWL) Center takes about 1.5 to 2 hours. You will be amazed at this 800-acre site that was given to the Home by Lorraine Howard. The OWL tour includes the bunkhouse; camp cabins; conference center; hot houses; low and high ropes courses; fields for softball, baseball and soccer; equestrian center; pavilion; wooden maze; and several more attractions. If the weather is nice, we may take the Arbor Walk through the woods. We might see some deer and turkey plus other forms of wildlife.
Between the tours of the two campuses, we can make arrangements for lunch, or you might bring your own and enjoy the open air pavilion. If you live over 100 miles from Ruston, you can make arrangements to spend the night at our bunkhouse or family lodge for a restful night at our “heaven on earth” at the OWL.
Please call at 318-255-5575 to arrange a tour. Hope to see you soon. Come enjoy God’s creation during the wonderful springtime weather.
