Feedback from Previous Employees
“I don’t know how to begin to thank you. You gave me the opportunity to work for y’all for 2 of the most incredible summers. I never would have imagined what all was in store, when I first applied to Moose Head, and now I can’t stop talking about the most fun, hardest and most rewarding summers ever…you treat the guests like family, and in doing so the crew became family.” Laura, Atlanta
“I just wanted to take some time to thank y’all for the most special summer. Going into the summer I knew it would be great, but now it exceeded my expectations ten fold. Being given the opportunity to work at Moose Head was truly one of the biggest blessings. I learned so much about myself and what a joy it is to put yourself out there and meet new people. I learned the meaning of true hard work and I’m forever thankful for those experiences. The sweet friendships and memories made will be something I hold close to my heart for the rest of my life. I don’t think I laughed so much or have been so happy as I was this past summer.” Lily, Dallas
“I just wanted to take a minute and let you know how often I think of you and the ranch. The summer I spent at Moose Head forever changed me. We worked hard, ate, laughed and got to enjoy the very basic things of life. I grew up knowing the value of hard work- but working for you taught me so much more. It taught me to work to serve others- not just to get the job done. It taught me that people need a place like Moose Head to escape the business of life- to slow down and let the “wild West” capture their souls. That is what it did for me and I have longed for that ever since the day I left. I am forever indebted to you for giving me the opportunity to work for you. From the bottom of my heart- Thank You. Thank you for creating such an incredible place. It felt like home.” Jordan, 4 years later
“I cannot begin to explain to you how incredible my summer was at MH. I am so thankful to you both for the
opportunity to work at the most BEAUTIFUL place I have ever seen. I cannot seem to quit looking at this summer’s pictures or reminiscing on the countless memories I made while there. I know I learned lessons invaluable to my future, as well as a lot about myself. You two really run a very special place and without your love for it, it wouldn’t be the same. I miss the ranch and you guys more than you know.” Callie, Atlanta
“Moose Head for me was the best and most rewarding experience I have ever had. There is not a day that goes by that I don’t think about MH and all of the wonderful memories I made over the summer. You really don’t know what you have until it’s gone. Thank you again for the opportunity of a lifetime.” Conner, Ft. Payne, AL
“Words really can’t even begin to describe how much I loved working at Moose Head. When people from school ask me how my summer was, all I can do is smile because I can’t even try to tell them how wonderful it was. I loved every single person on the crew and it is extremely hard being away from them! But more than that, I learned so much about myself and my strengths and weaknesses. When you are working at the ranch it doesn’t really even feel like work. I don’t think a day has gone by where I haven’t thought about the ranch or talked to another crew member. I can’t thank you enough for the opportunity you gave me to work at MH. It is something I will always remember.” Alli, Atlanta
“I just wanted to thank you for giving me the opportunity of a lifetime and for the best summer of my life. Moose Head has created memories and friends that I will cherish for many years to come.” Ellis, Greensboro, NC
“It has been a little over a month since I left the ranch and it still feels like it was yesterday. There is something about the ranch that gets in your heart and just seems to stay there. This summer was more than I ever could have expected it would be. I already know that the friends I made at Moosehead will be lifelong. I just wanted to say thank you for the opportunity to be a part of the ranch. It is truly a special place, one that I know I will cherish forever.” Caroline, Atlanta
“I want to thank you for the wonderful opportunity you provided me, and the unforgettable memories that resulted. You all managed to hire one of the best groups of young adults that I have ever been privileged to be a part of, and I know many of them will be lifelong friends….I learned more this past summer than I have in all my other work experiences combined, including discovering new strengths, and with that some weaknesses.” Landon, Charlotte, NC
“Thank you for allowing me to return for a second and better summer. Honestly, this summer has been he most
incredible experience of my life. Moose Head is my favorite place on Earth and I continue to learn, grow and completely live and enjoy myself. The memories and knowledge I gained here will stay with me forever. Kate, Knoxville, TN
“I wanted to send you a quick e-mail just letting you know what a great time I had this summer. I loved every moment of it, and am so grateful that I had the opportunity to be out West with so many wonderful people. The cookouts, the softball games, the days off, and all of the nights with the crew were so much fun. I also learned so much about myself and became so much more confident in my ability to get along with people- and to be away from my family for 3 months, something I have never done before! It truly was the best summer of my life, and I really believe MH is a very very special place. Thank you for inviting me to be a part of it.” Sloane, Richmond, VA
“I just wanted to thank you for giving me another great summer. These summers provide me with some of the greatest memories in my life. It means the world to me to be able to share a part of my life with so many amazing people. I will never be able to thank you enough. I found my true and happy self at Moose Head Ranch.” Nuni, Tallahassee, FL
