Every kid, whether or not he or she has ever been on a horse, will have several days of riding the vast network of trails surrounding the Bit-O-Wyo Ranch. Experienced wranglers teach the ins and outs from saddling to dismounts. By the end of a week a kid will call a horse a friend.
Every kid will experience the exhilaration of live performance. Some might even catch the theater bug, if they haven’t already.
These games and adventures can only be solved through teamwork and leadership. Whether it’s finding the buried gold using a map, a compass and a series of clues; figuring out “whodunnit” in a Western style interactive mystery; or testing balance and strength in a series of physical challenges, every event will bring forth a different set of skills. Other activities include hiking, archery, canoeing, arts and crafts, roping skills, and more.
The campfire lends itself to finding a sense of community. One night it might be singing, another might be about the mythology and poetry of the West. We teach through stories and bond through common experience.
Most of Our WindRider Facilitators and Counselors have been with us since the beginning of Camp in 2007 and are trained experts in all aspects of Camp life including: Horseback Riding, Canoeing, Archery, Art, Leadership, Community Service, and Theatre.
