Ranch Camp Program Philosophy 

Ranch Camp is designed for campers 12 - 16 years of age who wish to be completely immersed in an equestrian environment. The Ranch is located in a self-contained setting just a mile from North Camp. As a working ranch, campers live in rustic conditions that foster a great sense of camaraderie. Highlights of each two-week session include hosting a Hoe Down for all teen camps or participating in creative team building adventure activities, an overnight campout with their horses, a night ride, and the final rodeo. Ranch focuses on horses and horsemanship through caring for the herd, chores, arena lessons, and trail rides. Campers also have a chance to enjoy other activities that YMCA Storer Camps has to offer including swimming and the zip line. Everyone is welcome at Ranch regardless of prior riding experience.

Cabin Arrangements for Ranch

Campers sleep in rustic tent cabins and have access to running water and portable toilets. Campers travel every other day into main camp for showers and to participate in other camp activities. If there is a need, showers will be made available more frequently to campers. 

Meals and Nutrition for Ranch 

Breakfast is prepared by campers and Storer staff cooks take care of lunch and dinner. On a rotation basis, campers assist with setting tables and clean-up. Special arrangements for ranch hands with allergies or dietary needs are accommodated.
