Ranch Camp – Ages 10-16
Session 2, 4, 7: Ranch Camp – Girls Only!
Ranch Camp at Circle K is unlike any other camp! Ranchers will experience the joy and responsibility of having their own horse through daily activities such as grooming, tacking, horseback riding lessons and trail rides. Ranchers will spend most of their week in the saddle and with the horses, but will also have time to enjoy traditional camp activities such as archery, canoeing, swimming, the rock climbing wall, arts and crafts and much more! All Ranchers stay at Elk Lodge where they can see the horses from their bunks. Ranchers will be placed in riding classes based on an assessment of their current riding skills. Both English and Western styles are offered and all riding levels are welcome.
