The Dude Ranch Program gives campers the chance to have an authentic experience like no other -- living, working and participating in real ranch life. Campers learn horsemanship, as they brush, saddle, and then ride 2-3 times a day. We take campers ages 11-16 with all levels of experience, from those who have never touched a horse to experienced riders.

The program takes place at Woodside Ranch in Mauston, Wisconsin where kids will participate in horsemanship classes and other activities (horseshoes, miniature golf, swimming, tennis, pony rides, nature hikes, basketball, volleyball, and line-dancing). Woodside Ranch is known for their breakfast rides into the woods surrounding the ranch, with breakfast made to order in their outdoor kitchen. Besides all of the fun and activities, our campers also get the chance to just hang out together- which can be as much fun as anything they do.

2016 Applications are now closed.
