Art, art, art and more art! Throw in some adorable critters and you have a blazing fun week. We will combine your love of crafts and creativity with our forest friends. Venture out of the art studio and down to the barn to get inspiration from our alpacas or burros. We will even bring your drawings to life with some simple sewing and stuffing. Hike down to the Mystery Tree to see if you can spot our other furry nature friends.
Enjoy all that camp has to offer including archery, hiking the trails, water fights and cool crafts. Cook dinner outside and make a yummy gooey dessert. Take a hike or enjoy an overnight gazing at the stars. You will even have a chance to plan a cool “all camp” event. The choice is yours! End the week with new friends and wanting more of the camp life.

Feeling stressed after a long school year? Head to Rancho to chill and relax! Pamper yourself by turning your unit into a spa. Relax with good music, yummy snacks, natural beauty products and new friends. Write in a journal and unwind with yoga. Create a zen schedule of other camp activities if you choose.
Counselor In Training I
This is the first step on the journey to becoming a camp counselor. Start your first week with the same training our camp counselors go through - learn child development, program planning and how to be a good mentor to young girls. During the second week, you will have the chance to assist counselors in a unit, singing songs, and playing games. You will even have a chance to assist in the program area of your choice.
Wrangler In Training I
The Wrangler Program is an opportunity for experienced girls to help with and learn our riding program. Provide leadership to our younger campers in the riding program as you help groom, saddle and help with other daily barn chores. Assist the barn staff with ground school, arena lessons and trail riding. You will have a busy schedule but will also have time to improve your own horse skills with specialized lessons. Take an overnight or plan a special event for the younger riding campers.
