Summer Camps


Give your kids a summer to remember!


Have your kids always wanted a chance to play with horses and learn some riding basics? If so, Wild Ones Youth Ranch’s Summer Horse Camps are a perfect way to introduce boys and girls to the joys of horseback riding. These day camp sessions are designed for children of all riding abilities.

We have camps for ages 5-7 (Buckaroos) and ages 8-14 (Day Camps).  

2021 Summer Camp dates are now posted! To see how you can get Registered, click here!



(join up mentorship program)




Wild Ones’ JUMP program (Join-Up Mentorship Program) provides the opportunity for youth ages 6-18 to work with Christian mentors who model the attitude of serving God and others through our wonderful horses.

JUMP Program Requirements

Here are the basic requirements for each tier of our JUMP program. Rules are subject to change anytime at the discretion of the director.


Fees:  There is a quarterly fee of $70 (payable every three months). This covers all group lessons and summer camps throughout the year.


Jr. JUMPers (ages 6-10) is made up of younger riders who would eventually like to enroll in the program as Ranch Hands. They are introduced to horse basics via weekly lessons.



  • must be 6-10 years of age

  • must participate in weekly group lessons at the ranch

  • optional attendance of monthly meetings

  • Please note Jr. JUMPers do not pay a quarterly fee; they pay for group lessons ($3 per lesson) and summer camp fee ($35) separately [rates subject to change]


Ranch Hands

(ages 10 and up) get hands-on experience with horses, a taste of farm life, and the opportunity to help out at camps, lessons, and other Wild Ones events. They attend monthly meetings and have weekly volunteer time. Last but not least, they have many chances to ride and have fun!


  • must be 10-12 years of age

  • must have completed at least one session of Group Lessons, (8 lessons)

  • must put in an initial 20 hours of volunteer time

  • must volunteer for 1/2 a day per week during summer camps

  • must faithfully attend meetings and events

  • must participate in weekly group lessons at the ranch


Junior Wranglers

(ages 12 and up) are entrusted with bigger responsibilities and have even more opportunities to gain horse experience and make memories!


  • must be 12-14 years of age

  • must have completed Ranch Hand requirements 

  • must volunteer for 1/2 a day per week during summer camps

  • must put in an additional 10 hours of volunteer time in June and August

  • must faithfully attend meetings and events

  • must participate in weekly group lessons at the ranch



(ages 15 and up) who can demonstrate good horsemanship are encouraged to join our Wrangler Program. Wranglers are the hands-on teachers and counselors of our ministry. They help mentor the Ranch Hands and Junior Wranglers while improving and fine-tuning their own horse skills. The Wranglers’ hard work is a vital part of our summer camps and other events. Attaining the status of Wrangler is a privilege and carries with it the responsibility to be role models, not only for the Jr. JUMPers, Ranch Hands and Junior Wranglers, but for all who benefit from our ministry.


  • must be at least 15 years of age

  • must have completed Jr. Wrangler Requirements

  • must volunteer for 1 day per week during summer camps

  • must put in 1 or more hours of volunteer time weekly
    (includes lessons, chores and working horses)

  • must faithfully attend meetings and events

  • must participate in weekly group lessons at the ranch




Here at Wild Ones Youth Ranch, it is our desire that every child who dreams of interacting with horses in any way can have the opportunity to do just that, no matter his or her circumstance.
