In 1984, the Baldwin County Boys Ranch was established in Summerdale, Alabama, on land that was donated by John B. Foley. The campus now includes two ranch homes, a chapel, gym, pool, office, two staff houses, the boys college home, and support buildings. The boys attend Foley First Baptist church on Sundays and Wednesdays. Ranchers attend Foley and Summerdale schools where they participate in activities such as sports, academic clubs, band, and ROTC. Highlights for the year include: annual fishing and beach trips, concerts, campouts, church youth activities including mission trips, and cookouts.
Baldwin County events include the annual Pig Roast and Live Auction every March, The Taylor Wilkins Memorial Golf Tournament put on by the Baldwin County Sheriffs Office in the summer, and Sales of Boston Butts every fall. All proceeds from these events benefit the Baldwin County Boys Ranch.
