Ranch Camps

Experience the unique setting of living, working, and playing at a real working ranch camp! Horseback riding is often central to programming at summer ranch camps. Western riding technique and vaulting (gymnastics on horseback) are typical core instruction components. Animal care, roping, swimming, and other sports are often a part of a summer ranch camp's program.

Camp Jewell's Ranch Camp program is designed for boys and girls ages 7-15 that are interested in learning or expanding their horseback riding skills. The lessons are instructional, fun and will challenge everyone from first time riders to those with years of experience. All lessons are taught in a balanced, English seat so no matter your discipline you will come away from Ranch as a better rider ready to take on your next riding challenge.
