2019 Urban Rancher's Day Camp

Do you or someone you know want to learn more about handling ranch animals? Does adopting your “own” goat for a week sound like fun? Are you between the ages of 8-13? Then Urban Ranchers Day camp is just for you!

Join us for a fun filled adventure June 25th-28th at the Arapahoe County Fairgrounds. You will learn how to care for and handle your goat. Other animals such as chickens, cows, and horses/llamas will be there for you to discover how they are used on the farm. Camp counselors will lead daily games and projects which will help you explore where your food comes from. We will also try some of our favorite farm foods and make some crafts from our favorite farm animals. Camp runs from 8am-12:30pm each day. On Friday you will get to show off your new farm skills for your parents and friends and celebrate at a cook out from 12:00pm to 1:30pm.

Camp registration includes a t-shirt, snacks, activities, awards, and the Show Cook-out on the last day of camp! For more information, click here. To register, click on the picture above. Space is limited to the first 20 participants, so sign up today!

Do you worry about flying lead changes? Does your horse drag his flying lead changes? Do you ask yourself, "Why can't I change leads on the straight line? Why is it so difficult?"
