Amazing Race

You’ve seen the show, now the Amazing Race comes to Stevens Ranch! Each day teams will try and outsmart each other with clues and compete in adventure challenges such as canoeing, tubing, horseback riding, and hiking to special places in camp. Don’t worry, between road blocks and races against time you will still get to relax and it will be amazing.

Note: Those who have attended Amazing Race in the past are not allowed to re-register.

Create Your Own Camp

Experience it all! Create your own special experiences at camp by choosing the activities that interest you the most! You will still enjoy swimming lessons, cookouts, songs, hikes and all-camp activities. Make choices for the rest of the day to lead you down the path to achieve a badge or Girl Scout Journey. Focus your activities on craft projects, jewelry-making, nature exploration, mountain biking, dance, archery, acting, and more! Activity choices will vary with each session to go along with the weekly theme. 

Prim and Proper

Western riding isn’t the only thing you can learn at Stevens Ranch.  Spend a week learning the beginning skills of English riding including: proper position, balance, walk, trot, and maybe even canter, or experience 18 inch cross ties while maintaining harmony with your horse. The outfit isn’t the only cool thing about English riding.  Come see for yourself. 

Note: Prim and Proper in not a step in the Horse Program Progression offered at Stevens Ranch.
