Life at Camp
In Western Town, campers will spend the majority of the day rotating through our daily activities including horseback riding, tree climbing, swimming, archery, crafts, and more! After dinner, campers will all participate in a large-scale camp game followed by a period of supervised free time. The evening is finished off with our meaningful campfire, which includes fun and engaging songs and skits along with a brief message.
Discovery campers participate in similar activities with age-appropriate additions including baking, wacky science, and extended swimming time. They will also get to enjoy a fun and engaging clubhouse time with short, child-friendly lessons.
As long as the weather cooperates, all campers have the opportunity to swim, ride horses and, climb our tree climbing course at least once while they are here. Our specialty camps have independent schedules and activities.
We will retain lost and found for one month following camp. If not claimed by then, we will donate appropriate items to a local charity. Medication will be disposed of within two weeks following the camper’s week of attendance. Calls to the camp regarding lost and found will be handled as time permits. We can only look for labelled items. Any found items will be sent C.O.D. (at your expense).
Campers are encouraged not to bring valuable clothing or possessions. Circle Square Ranch is not responsible for lost, damaged or stolen items.
Your child will have a devotional time during the day (approximately ½ hour) plus an evening campfire (approximately 1 hour) that will focus on predetermined topics as laid out in the Circle Square Ranch general program. These are times of introduction to Christian values and beliefs presented through small and large group discussions, skits, songs and Bible study.
What to Bring
- electronic games, players, entertainment and communication devices (cell phones)
- jack knives, hunting knives, matches or lighters
- nuts and/or peanut products
- chewing gum
- inappropriate reading materials
- alcoholic beverages, narcotics or tobacco products (see note)
Do not bring anything valuable to camp, as occasionally things do get lost or broken.
We reserve the right to send home any camper who fails to cooperate. Circle Square Ranch is a NON-SMOKING facility. Please discuss this with your child prior to camp should you consider this to be a concern.
- The use of tobacco, alcoholic beverages, or narcotics is prohibited and will be treated as a serious offense. Appropriate disciplinary action will be taken.
- Circle Square Ranch is not responsible for lost, damaged or stolen items.
Campers will order their tuck treats each day from the tuck store. Parents who want their campers to be able to buy tuck must pay for their tuck ahead of time online or at registration. Since, there is no need for money throughout the week, we discourage campers from bringing cash or wallets.
Arrival and Departure Days
Camp photos and medication are to be collected when signing out your camper.
All campers must be signed out before leaving. Please notify the office if someone else will be picking up your child at departure as they will be required to sign them out.
Our Caring Staff
Health and Safety
Due to the structure of our program, Circle Square Ranch requests that medications required throughout the year be sent with your child to camp. All medication brought to camp MUST be kept by Ranch staff, including vitamins, puffers and Tylenol. They must be labelled properly with medication name and directions for use. Prescription medication MUST be in the original container with user’s name printed on label. If you want your child to carry his/her puffer or epipen with them please bring a fanny pack for that purpose. We also request that a second puffer or epipen be checked in with the camp nurse.
Please do not use the week of camp as a break from medication.
All medications left behind after camp will be disposed of after two weeks.
Details regarding medical/behavioral concerns are to be communicated in writing. Please call to discuss any concerns/special needs by phone.
