Afternoon Activities

You will find a variety of afternoon activities available each year. Cabin groups choose their activities together, allowing each camper to enjoy some of their favorites!

 

Giant Scrabble

  • Life-Size Scrabble is sure to be a hit, playing on the grassy hill or in the barn in case of rain.

Archery

  • Learn how to draw and shoot a bow & arrow! Safety is our first priority as we teach your child the ins & out of this age-old sport.

Camp Project

  • Campers can choose a service project if they like. These could include helping clean out rabbit trays, weeding a flower bed, or even marking a walking trail.

Canoeing

  • With lifeguards and safety vests in hand, campers head out to the "Horse Swimming Pond" for some good ol' fashioned fun! They learn how to steer and paddle as they work together to explore the pond.

Low Ropes Course

  • Teamwork is the name of the game in our new low ropes course. Campers will test their balance, communication and teamwork skills during this instant favorite.

Crafts

  • Cabin groups can choose a "make and take" craft. Past crafts have included paper bag scrapbooks, pony bead bandanas, ceramics painting, and more!

Critter Care

  • Wish you had a pet at home? Campers can visit the small animals throughout the week and learn about their care. You will get plenty of time to cuddle a few baby animals :)

Fishing

  • Grab the tackle box and some fishing poles and head out to the pond! You may even catch a bass or two :)

Frisbee/Football

  • Playing Frisbee or Football is sure to round out any activity, especially when they are taken out to a grassy field near the Ranch House.

Group Games

  • Camp counselors help their cabin group get creative as they enjoy the simplicity of 'back yard fun' playing games like hula hoop pass, blob tag, and more.

 

Horse Activities see additional activities available in the afternoons

 

Lariat Session

  • Learn to throw a lariat and practice on the rusty steer. You may learn enough to consider joining a heading and heeling team someday.

Lawn Games

  • From horseshoes to corn-hole toss with walking stilts, YeeHaw ball, and Giant Jenga in between; campers are sure to enjoy making memories together with these games!

Monkey Bridge/Swings

  • Learn to trust your counselors and each other as you walk across the monkey bridge, and feel the beautiful breeze as you swing in the shade!

Nature or Creek Walk

  • Explore the woods and creeks of the property surrounding the Ranch House! There is much to see and do as your counselor uses this opportunity to teach you about the many sights, sounds, and smells of the great outdoors!

Saddle Soaping

  • Learn all about the care of your horse's tack as you carefully soap, scrub, and oil their equipment.

Scavenger Hunt
