Summer Day Camp
During the summer months, our focus is a beautiful 50-acre ranch in rural Sauk County Wisconsin. Children from four local school districts, as well as from the nearby Ho-Chunk Nation, enjoy a two-week day camp. Camp includes horse therapy, art therapy, hands-on nature experiences, gardening, music, and FUN, along with continued literacy tutoring and mental wellness counseling. Groups are deliberately small in order to offer personal attention and support. No more than 21 children attend each of the five 8-day sessions offered during the summer.
The Kids Ranch summer camp staff includes a naturalist and an art therapist in addition to our education coordinator and retired family therapist. Volunteer tutors and junior counselors also assure each child has a positive camp experience.
Kids Ranch partners with B.R.E.A.T.H.E. (Baraboo River Equine Assisted Therapies, Inc.) for the horse therapy component of summer camp. We also work with Dogs on Call to provide reading therapy dogs for the children we serve.
