Every day brings about new experiences at
Wildwood Ranch Day Camp. Our two private lakes provide great areas
for lots of water sports. We have swimming opportunities for all
swimming levels guarded by caring professional lifeguards. There are
lots of activities to do at the waterfront for everyone...from the
non-swimmer who just wants to get wet in the shallow area to the
advanced swimmer who passes the swim test and is allowed into the
deeper areas. The water trampoline and the water "Blob" are two
favorite water activities! There are also canoes, paddleboats,
rowboats and funyaks!
Horseback riding is a favorite among our
campers! Every week during day camp the campers get to visit the
horse barn. We have qualified instructors who love to share their
love of horses as well as their knowledge with children! Campers are
exposed to horse safety, their care and even how a horse likes to be
petted! They learn how to groom a horse and they have a riding
experience aimed at their particular riding level. All of this
excitement occurs under the watchful eye of our wrangling staff!
Ranch is a Christian organization. Our staff are committed
Christians who desire to be great role models that inspire the
children who attend our camps. We do have a daily Bible story time
that all the camper enjoy. It is a blast! But it is more than that.
The main way that we impact campers is by loving them and inspiring
them. There are so many opportunities to learn life lessons as you
experience all of these activities in a community group. Campers
leave with much more than a memory of a great time...they experience
community with their peers and with some really cool caring staff
There are many, many more activities that
day campers enjoy at Wildwood Ranch! There are 240 acres with many
nature trails that can be explored with their counselor's
assistance. We offer arts and crafts activities, a 40 foot climbing
wall (for the daring), nature classes, field games, team sports,
disc golf, and all the creative group games that campers have
enjoyed for decades.
Your child will experience nature up
close and personal. There is so much research today about the value
of a child just playing outside, without the internet and whatever
the latest and greatest game console is. Day camp is a perfect way
to make sure that your child does not experience the "Nature Deficit
Disorder" (as described in Richard Louv's excellent book, "Last
Child in the Woods").
