What to bring: Additional Info Ranch Camps
Sonshine Ranch offers a very popular Holiday Programme year round throughout all seasons. All holiday camps have an element of Christian teaching. During the Day Camps this is run for a short time after lunch and for Overnight Camps it is run each evening. All campers are asked to participate as it is the foundation of what has created the Ranch and gives people an insight on why Sonshine Ranch is so unique.
Due to our Ranch Camps filling up very quickly we only allow campers to attend one Overnight Camp per holiday period.
The Adventure Camp is a new style of Camp we are offering to both boys and girls. This camp has
been created to open the doors for more children to enjoy camp without the main focus of horses.
Over the course of the 3 nights and 4 days we offer a variety of Outdoor games, activities and
team building challenges. A great opportunity for new experiences, stepping out of your comfort
zone and creating new friendships. There will be a horse riding experience where campers get to
enjoy a horse trek around the Ranch. Campers remain with their cabin group each day who are
supervised and supported by their designated leaders. This helps create a bond between the cabin
and many new friendships are developed.
This is our traditional horse camp for girls where campers spend 3 nights and 4 days at the ranch without
any interruption from cell phones or internet! Over the course of the 4 days the campers are
designated a horse where they will learn the basics of riding or advance their riding skills through
their daily group lesson. Campers ride once each day and during other times they participate in
challenging, fun and adventurous outdoor activities the Ranch has to offer. Campers remain with
their cabin group each day who are supervised and supported by their designated leaders. This helps
create a bond between the cabin and many new friendships are developed.
These camps are suitable for all levels of riders from beginners to advanced. If you wish to bring your
own horse to camp, please contact us to discuss this option.
Summer Riding Camp:
Over the summer holidays the Ranch offers a girls riding camp to those who have an intermediate level of riding and above.
Please note that for this camp if you are unknown to Camp Staff you may be required to come for an assessment ride to see if your riding level is suitable for the camp. Each application will be assessed to see if the camper is suitable for the Riding Camp and to ensure safety of all campers.
Riding Camp is unique in that it is smaller than the other Holidays Camps.
Each camper is designated a horse for the entire camp which they ride in both morning and afternoon sessions. After a hot day riding the water-slide is often on offer to the campers for a cool down after a long days ride.
The rest of camp is run similar to the other overnight camps but being smaller it really allows campers to build great friendships with other campers and of course their horse.
