Rescue Ranch Critter Camps

Critter Camps are designed to be fun, educational camp experiences for children who love animals. All camps involve daily interaction with animals, games, crafts, STEM activities, and our 10,000 sq ft inclusive playground. Campers will learn how to care for animals, provide enrichment, and to promote humane animal care to others.

Animal Survival

Campers will learn about animal survival through changing seasons as they play games, complete activities, and spend time with our Animal Ambassadors.

Every summer we are looking for students who love working with children and interacting with animals to join our Junior Counselor program.

 

The Junior Counselor program is both fun and hard work. Junior Counselors should enjoy working with children, be able to demonstrate a respect for animals, serve as a positive role model for campers, and provide dependable, responsible support for staff and campers. Space in the program is limited, unfortunately, and we regret that we are unable to accept every applicant. Please note that camp Junior Counselors must be entering at least 7th grade in the fall of 2020 and between 12-17 years old.

 

Applications will be available February 15th and are due by April 15th in order to be considered.  Applications will be posted here once they are available.
