Spring Break Work Parties 

Youth Volunteer Work Parties for Teens

Calling all Ekone teens…there's a lot going on at Ekone and we need your help!

Take it from the teens themselves: Spring time at Ekone is super fun and extra special.  It’s a chance to see Ekone in the off-season, hang out with a small group of other awesome teens, and get down and dirty with ranch projects that will make a lasting impact. 

It’s also an opportunity to “give back” to Ekone and lay the foundation for a great spring and summer by getting the ranch ready for action.  Part service…all fun! 


The Possibilities List includes:

  • Spend a little time with the animals at the ranch; scratching off the horses' winter coats, hikes with goats, collecting chicken eggs or playing with baby Zephyr!

  • Check trails for obstacles and damage

  • Do some spring cleaning of the Yummy Tummy Cafe, Lodge, Longhouse and grounds (with music, of course)

  • Have a movie night

  • Celebrate the Spring with a walk down to rushing Rock Creek

  • Reconnect with old friends and make some new ones

  • Burn stuff!

  • Fix fences

  • Clean tack

  • Go on a field trip: to a farmer neighbor, sage-picking, or helping out a neighbor with a special project, the possibilities are endless!

  • Dance party in the Yummy Tummy

This camp is open to ages 12-19.  Attendance is limited to 12, so don’t delay! 

We've made these workparties a little shorter than the typical Spring Break Camps of the past--we've noticed that with Spring weather and family trips, that sometimes teens just aren't available for the whole week so we're going to pack all the Ekone goodness into a few days!
