5/27/20 Update to regularly scheduled programs:

Are you tired of words like “unprecedented”, “these times”, or “uncertainty”? We are too, but that doesn’t change the situation we are faced with, and due to the Rona and the inherent challenges, we have cancelled the regular summer program for 2020. This decision was not easy to make, but was ultimately based on the need to ensure the safety and wellbeing of our camp family (campers, staff, and their families). 

 

This update does not mean that we are shutting down for the summer to wait this thing out like a toad waiting for rain, and while we work to make sure that our program can run safely and smoothly you can sign up for our mailing list, so you can get updates swiftly when we are ready to offer programs again. 

Pathfinder Ranch Summer Camp is dedicated to building life-long memories, friendships, and skills for children from diverse backgrounds. To accomplish our mission we utilize activities to help build confidence and self-esteem while providing them with new experiences that might not normally be available. By providing campers with the chance to begin anew, surrounded by people who have no expectations or previous conceptions, Pathfinder enables campers to become who they want to be and discover who they might become.

We have a wide range of activities for kids to choose from, such as: Horseback Riding, Archery, Canoeing, Swimming, Rock Climbing, Arts & Crafts, Hiking, Nature Center, Sports & Games, Campfire Activities, Team Challenge and Explorer’s Club.

Camper health and safety is our primary concern. Camp staff are trained, qualified, and committed to provide each camper with a safe and rewarding experience. The staff-to-camper ratio is 1:10 or better to ensure maximum supervision. We have a health center that is open 24 hours a day to provide immediate first aid care. Both campers and staff participate in classes, meals, evening programs and all-camp activities providing a well-rounded camp experience for all!

Campers ages 7-14 can attend any of our traditional camp sessions and scholarships are available. For more information about our scholarships please click here.

All camp sessions are Monday through Saturday.

 


 

 

Teen Leadership Programs 

 

 

Our Teen Leadership Program has two distinct steps:

 

C.I.L.T.
C.I.L.T. (pronounced like silt) stands for Camper In Leadership Training. The program is for young adults who have completed their Freshman year of high school. This program is a week long experience when campers get to explore what it means to be a leader.

and

 

Junior Counselor
Young adults who have completed their sophomore year of high school are eligible to apply for our Junior Counselor program. This program is 2 weeks long. When applying for the Junior Counselor program you must apply for 2 consecutive weeks. There is no charge for this volunteer program but space is extremely limited and priority will be given to applicants who have completed the C.I.L.T. program.
