It’s time to ride!

Do you love horses?! As a rancher, you’ll spend the entirety of each morning at the stables learning to care for and ride a horse. Your afternoons and evenings will be back on main camp… meaning you won’t miss any exciting main camp activities!

Winston Churchill once said, “No hour of life is wasted that is spent in the saddle.”

We couldn’t agree more! Ranch Camp is one of the most unique experiences we have at Camp Gray. In the mornings at the Stables, you’ll take riding lessons and learn about horse care. Typically, campers are paired up, and then together they’re assigned a horse for the week. With many hours spent with the same horse, campers develop a close bond with their horse. Campers are able to learn the skill of horseback riding quickly, because there’s a consistency throughout the week atop the same horse.

Ranch campers spend the afternoons during their session on Main Camp in the Trailblazer or Pathfinderrotation. In the evenings, you’ll be mixed between the ranch and main camp activities (like the Cassidy Games!).

A Ranch Camp tradition, from the very beginning, is the famous, good old fashioned, Ranch Camp mud fight (goggles included!). Is there a better way to wrap up a session of Ranch Camp? We say, Nayyy!
