In 1975, Mr. Ira Hanks donated land for our St. Clair County Boys Ranch. The campus includes 3 ranch homes, an office, gym, pond, swimming pool, chapel, 2 staff houses, horse barn, and various support buildings. The boys attend schools in Pell City and are involved in extracurricular activities such as sports, band, and various clubs. The ranch family is active in a local church, where they participate in various youth programs, as well as camps, retreats, and mission trips. The ranch calendar is very full. It is highlighted by professional, college, and high school athletic events, summer camps, concerts, visits to water parks, attendance at Talladega Speedway events, and an annual beach trip.
Sheriff Terry Surles and the St. Clair County Sheriff's Department invite you to join them in a fun ride to benefit the kids at the St. Clair County Boys Ranch. For more information on this event you may call (205) 640-5718 or click here.
