Opening day is tomorrow! We are very excited for you to get here and we wanted to provide you with as much information beforehand to make sure your first day with us is enjoyable and stress free.
Google maps is reliable and will take you right to us. Just type in Mountain Meadow Ranch and hit ‘go!’ Our directions page on our website will also give you step by step directions to get to the ranch.
Ok, I think I’m here…now what?
After winding your way up the dirt hill, you’ll find yourself driving down into the ranch. Pull into the parking lot on your left. If the big barn is on your right and lagoon to your left, you’ve gone too far!
Please park facing the tennis courts. Please be aware of the other families coming and going. Leave your luggage in the car but if you have medications, bring them with you.
The Check-In Table
Follow the driveway around to the check in table (there will be signs).
At the check in table you will meet a director, find out what cabin you’re in and get a chance to ask any questions you might have.
We apologize if the line at the check-in table is long. We love to meet parents and we try to give each of you our undivided attention. We want to make sure you feel comfortable leaving your most valuable treasure here with us.
From the check-in table you will head over to the nurse to get a lice check and drop off any medication that you might have.
A counselor will meet you at the nurse and then show you to your cabin.
After that, you can accomplish the following four things in any order:
– Meet the nurse:
If you dropped off medication, you have already done this! Otherwise, you will need to meet the nurse, review your forms and ask any questions you might have.
– Meet the horses:
Whether or not you plan on riding while at camp, everybody gets to meet the horses and receives a safety brief. You will need to wear long pants and closed toe shoes when you meet the horses.
– Swim assessment:
Put on your swimsuit and head over to the pool! Our life guards will lead you through a quick swim assessment. It is nothing to be nervous about, we just need to know how comfortable you are in the water.
– Camp tour:
Tours leave from the campfire periodically throughout the day. A Counselor will show you all the most important parts of camp.
Should I stay or should I go?
We encourage you to stay and participate in orientation with your camper. We want you to experience the beauty and wonder of camp. You can stay for as much or as little of the orientation as you’d like. You know your child best, so you can make a decision based on what you think is best for your child. No matter how long you stay, we ask that all parents head out before 2pm.
Directors will be at the check-in table throughout the day to answer any questions you may have. You can also find anyone wearing a green Mountain Meadow Staff shirt and they will point you in the right direction.
