Urban Ranchers Day Camp

Submitted by Corrie Sahling on Mon, 05/11/2015 - 1:57pm

Does your child have what it takes to be a farmer? Test out their skills with this camp that exposes them to life on a ranch. Kids ages eight to 13 will handle and care for their own goat or sheep while learning about the other animals on the ranch, including chickens, cows, horses, and llamas. They'll also have the chance to try fruits and veggies fresh from the fields and make crafts featuring their favorite farm animal. At the end of the week, the families of all campers are invited for a show, in which your little herder will show his animal with the help of local 4-H leaders.

Your tyke (ages two to four) can build a solid foundation of balance at this four day biking session. For 45 minutes each day, instructors will school the kids in propelling themselves using their feet and going downhill. Parents are encouraged to stay by their child's side so they can reinforce the lessons at home. On the last day, campers will take to an obstacle course to demonstrate what they learned, proving that all any kid needs is a little push (literally). Mon-Fri 9:15-10 a.m.
