A one-of-a-kind camp program, emphasizing natural horsemanship, nature-based activities, positive peer relationships, and a warm, welcoming camp community. Small sessions with a max of 24 campers and a camper/staff ratio of 6:1 or better.

Since 1986, Ekone Ranch offers a one-of-a-kind camp program on 1060 acres of canyonlands, forests and meadows near the Columbia Gorge. Our residential, co-ed camp program features small groups of no more than 24 children per session and a 6:1 camper/staff ratio or better.

We offer a variety of sessions.

PASSAGE FOR GIRLS: A Coming-of-Age Journey in Nature, is an empowering experience for girls aged 12-16 and 17-22 (side-by-side tracks).

HOMESTEAD CAMP is a ranch intensive, focusing on homestead crafts and wilderness skills.

HORSE CAMP sessions emphasize the special relationship between children and horses. Campers spend many hours each day with our wonderful horses, grooming, learning groundwork, practicing in the arena, and going on long trail rides through spectacular country. We ride bareback and western. When not with the horses, campers are engaged in a variety of art projects, nature explorations, swimming, ranch activities and chores.

Our garden-fresh, from-scratch food is a highlight of the camp experience (many a camper has learned to love their vegetables in the Yummy Tummy Cafe). Campers sleep in our A-frame longhouse, in tipis, under the stars, or in the hay barn where we listen to the horses breathe all night long.

All of our sessions emphasize creating a supportive camp community, healthy peer relationships, and a positive work ethic. Campers have an unforgettable immersion experience in healthy lifestyles, good eating, and great friends. They learn that good work can be great fun, and they come back year after year for more!

Due to our small session size, we are happy to accommodate some children with special needs or dietary considerations--please contact us for more information.
