Only one week until our first adventure camp for the summer.. we are SO excited for what we have planned!!! ... See MoreSee Less

this week our main events were fishing, horse back riding, trail biking, as well as camping fun. We made clay sculptures, walking sticks, smores, banana boats, apple barrels, wood signs; we played so many fun woods games, including camo hide and seek, capture the flag, seaweed scramble, and camp deens. The energy in this group of campers was absolutly fabulous, there was never a dull moment, nor time for slowing down.

Yesterday was a perfect day for a graduation/ summer celebration. The students all showed off what they learned through the year in music, they shared some of the highlights of the year, and said farewell to a few of the students who will be leaving us☹️.
The children got to crack open a geode to see their treasure surprise, raced around in gunny sacks and finally ended the day with a pie eating contest!
We are so proud of all these wonderful children. Off to play in the sunshine they go, but we can't wait to hear their summer stories when they return this fall ☀️

I was born and raised in the Selle Valley, on the Wood V-X Ranch, where I grew up loving the outdoors. Being raised on a ranch and in a large family has been a huge blessing in my life and has taught me many life lessons that couldn't have been learned otherwise...
