Summer 

at Ekone Ranch

2021 Program Schedule

Check out the *tentative* 2021 programs below!

To learn more about our adapted spring/summer program offerings please email summercamp@ekone.org.

Some FAQs:

  • Why are these plans still tentative? 

We don't have current state guidance about how summer camps will be able to operate in 2021. The most recent guidance is from July 2020 and can be found at this LINK. 

  • When will registration open for summer programs?

Our hope is to start accepting applications for summer programs in late March or early April, depending on state guidelines. We will send an email to the Ekone mailing list when it's time! For spring programs, just email summercamp@ekone.org for an application. 

  • Why aren't there more programs for young kids?

Last year we found that with distancing comes challenges in taking care of the needs of younger kids. Even though we hope to be less-distanced this summer, it is unlikely that we would be able to accommodate large enough groups of younger kids to equitably provide access to programming for that age group. So, we are choosing to focus on teens, who are both developmentally in need of beginning to separate from their parents and can be more self-sufficient during their time at camp.

  • I thought this was a horse camp! Why aren't you offering horse-specific programs?

Again, with anticipating the need for smaller groups of campers, we didn't feel that we could equitably provide access to riding camps (historically our most popular camps). There are so many amazing ways to experience the Ekone magic, we decided to focus on non-riding camps. The horses will still be around for snuggles and all camps will have horse connection time built in. 

  • Why are there two different costs for each program?

We are trying out a new pricing model that more accurately reflects the true "costs" of running programs at Ekone. More information about the rationale behind these costs will be posted soon. 

  • Where are the links to the camp descriptions?

They are coming soon!
