Torino Ranch – home of the Brett Torino Foundation – is a sprawling sanctuary of nature that rests inside the pristine and untouched land of Lovell Canyon. Designed by Brett Torino himself as a tribute to his love of the natural world, Torino Ranch features two lakes, hundreds of trees, a garden greenhouse, an outdoor amphitheater, an outdoor pool, dozens of cabins, and an ornately designed lodge with a commercial kitchen. It is the result of decades of planning, construction and community partnership.
Torino Ranch sits on land that has a diverse and fascinating history dating back to the original inhabitants, who were Paiute Indians.
The vision of the Brett Torino Foundation, in addition to sharing the magic of nature, is first and foremost to preserve it.
Every summer Torino Ranch hosts approximately a dozen Buddhist monks for a period of two to three weeks during a portion of the summer program. Their visit is a part of a cross-country trek by the monks to spread joy and zen to the staff, children, counselors and volunteers who tirelessly facilitate the camp experience.
