Summer Camp
 
Over all the experience was amazing and eventful. There was always something to do whether it was feeding the animals or riding the horses or trying to cowboy joust one of the counselors. It was a lot of fun. My favorite part of the week was riding the horses and eating a lot (thanks Debbie!! ) and learning about farm animals and how they work and what makes them tick, and also practicing my riding skills and improving them. I would totally recommend going to a camp at the Bar SZ Ranch.

My son can’t wait to go back next summer! He enjoyed all the animals, but Pomegranate, the cat, was his favorite. He also had a blast playing with the chickens. He made many new friends and everything was very well organized. Colton is a very kind and polite young host that helped everyone feel welcome. Thank you for such a wonderful experience. And the best part for momma, no video games!
— Andrea, proud parent of a Jr Wrangler Camper

 Packing Tips: All wranglers need  to bring a sleeping bag, pillow, sunscreen, hat, cowboy/cowgirl boots with a heel, tennis shoes, jeans (required EVERY DAY while onsite, no jeggings), layers for cooler nights, bathing suit and towel, any medication as noted on the registration form (with written instructions, must be in original packaging), personal toiletries, chapstick (2), and any other pertinent accessories.  Please don't pack an abundance of stuff or tank tops, we like to keep the ranch lifestyle simple and sunburn free.  No electronic devices allowed.  If your wrangler does not bring a pair of boots with a heel they will not be allowed to ride horses.  This is a safety issue and required by CHA certification.
