Weekend Youth Group Program

Friday thru Sunday  — available September — May

Still only $190/person for 2014


The Traditional Weekend Program has been a tradition at Rawhide Ranch for many years and serves young people from all over Southern California. The program can accommodate small youth groups* as well as youth groups* of up to 100.

The program includes a 2 night stay at the ranch with 6 meals, classes in animal and horse science, vaulting (gymnastics on horseback), riding instruction, animal care time, plus evening activities and campfire. The traditional weekend program ends with a horse/animal show in which all campers participate.

Rawhide Ranch provides all program activities for the Traditional Weekend Program. Each group must include a min. of 2 adult chaperones.

Campers and their chaperones are assigned to either cabins at Fort Rawhide or the Olde Schoolhouse depending on group size/gender. Cabins are outfitted with wooden bunkbeds/covered mattresses and overhead lighting. The modern shower/restroom facilities are located immediately adjacent to the housing areas. Youth participants must have reached their 7th birthday prior to the group’s event date.

*The youth group’s reservation must be made under the auspices of a sponsoring organization (i.e. Scouts, YMCA, etc.) who will be able to provide the necessary Certificate of Liability insurance paperwork.

Note for Cub Scout Leaders – Please check with your specific council office for approval procedures & details BEFORE making a reservation for Cub Scout dens/packs.
