Summers are simply lovely at the ranch. Our daily temperatures average a dry 85℉, while the nights average 50℉. Read through the Packing List for a specific list of our recommend clothing items. We hope for one good rain-dumping thunderstorm each summer!
All campers have a single bunk and we provide one pillow with pillowcase. What you choose to send with your camper for sleeping is totally up to their comfort needs. A sleeping bag might be all they need-or maybe they need more comfort so they bring sheets, a blanket, and an extra pillow.
We want the clothes worn at camp to be functional, so we have developed the dress code policy included in the Standards section of the Family Handbook. If campers choose to dress inappropriately they will be asked to change, or wear camp-issued shirt/shorts.
We recommend campers pack in two pieces of luggage. One large piece to be used
for clothing and a small duffle bag for sleeping bag, pillow, etc. A daypack, small like used for school, is also required. Laundry is done once per 2-week session and cabin storage is limited, so please try not to over-pack.
We encourage campers to dress silly for dances, capture the flag and other times throughout the session. Campers have been known to dress up as bananas, hippies, hillbillies, monkeys, aliens, etc. You can be as silly or normal as you’d like!
Items that are not labeled are less likely to be returned to your camper if they get lost in the cabin, on laundry day, or around camp.
Laundry is done once per 2-week session. Each cabin is assigned a laundry day, you bring it down at breakfast and pick it up after dinner. Our lovely kitchen staff will wash and dry each individual bag of laundry (clothes are taken out of the bag to be washed/dried, so your choice of laundry bag is totally up to you).
Our main camp grounds are even and grassy, but many activities take us to rough and uneven ground, so appropriate footwear is a safety requirement. Running shoes work best at camp. Hiking or any other specialty shoe is only optional, and keep in mind new shoes can cause more harm than good (blisters-yikes!).
