Rawhide Ranch has been serving area schools since 1963. This unique overnight experience offers students the chance to experience life science at a real working quarter horse ranch in an authentic Western town setting. This out-of-the classroom opportunity also fosters adolescent independence, teamwork and a new excitement for learning.
The program best serves 4th-8th grades. The daily schedule includes classes focusing on animal and horse science as well as western-style horseback riding and vaulting (gymnastics on horseback) lessons. Students get to experience the inner workings of the ranch during daily animal care time in our stock farm & stables. The evening activities include group games/activities for all campers. If your group needs a quiet spot for a special activity, we are more than happy to arrange for a location on the ranch following the evening activities. During the final day of your program all students will participate in a horse/animal show in our indoor riding arena.
Campers and their chaperones are assigned to a variety of rustic housing areas (covered wagons, bunkhouses, dormitory-style, teepees). Meals are included in the fee, with our professional chef preparing home-cooked meals.
Minimum group size is 25 people with a maximum group size of 100 people (students + chaperones). If group size is less than the maximum we reserve the right to book another school/group during the same session. Each school group will also be asked to provide a current certificate of liability insurance with Rawhide Ranch as an additional insured.
Rawhide Ranch is proud to be nationally accredited by the Certified Horsemanship Association (CHA) and the American Camp Association (ACA) assuring our participants that we meet the highest of safety standards for equestrian facilities.
