At the end of the day, your kids will go on and on about how much fun they had and how many friends they made. Our staff will supervise each group to ensure that they are always in a safe and comfortable environment.

The dude ranch kid’s programs are split into 3 groups, according on age. The first group is the Buckaroos, which is for 5-8 year olds. The Rough Riders is for the 9-12 year olds. They even have a group to keep ages 13-17 busy. Once they’re 18, the young people in your family are ready for grown up activities. Not to worry though, the ranch staff will still be making sure they’re safe, wherever they are.

We introduce your  Buckaroos to all sorts of new and exciting activities. They are surrounded by children their age, so they are never pressured to perform. Surrounded by our friendly staff, they will always be in a comfortable atmosphere. They can join in on activities such as the scavenger hunts, picnic horseback rides, that ice cream parlor they all hang out in and giggle their way through learning western dancing.

The Rough Riders get an activity schedule tailored to their abilities, and what they like to do. Children in this group of the dude ranch kids programs will participate in activities like rafting, hiking, and hay rides. The children are never pressured to join in on an activity that they are uncomfortable with. We ensure that each child is in their comfort zone.
