Summer day Camps at Cordillera Ranch

By Shane Reynolds  ::  Photography by Kelsey Grudle

With summer in full swing, it’s not too late register for the exciting camps offered at Cordillera Ranch. Camps keep kids active, enjoying the outdoors, learning to swim and having fun!

The primary goal of the Clubs’ Summer Camp Program is getting kids outdoors and learning about the different activities found on the Ranch, and our summer camp staff strive to have kids enjoy the physical and healthful benefits of experiencing the breeze, the sunlight and the sounds of being outdoors as well as staying physically active, socializing and learning new skills. Instead of watching movies or sitting in front of a computer screen, kids are tromping through the creek, playing games, learning to ride horses, swimming and identifying insects and plant species. The variety of camps offers something for everyone!
