Re: Away/Overnight Camp weeks of July 20th
My son went to Far View Ranch Camp last summer for the first time and begged to go back again this year. This is a wonderful place. Warm, welcoming, FUN. Activities include: Horseback riding, caring for farm animals, hiking, drama (campfire plays), art (they have a kiln), singing, swimming, fishing, generally having a great time. Lots of room to run around and explore. A swimming hole with a rope swing, a fishing hole, great food.
This is a family run camp and has been around for forever. I met parents who went there when they were kids, and now take their kids. Highest recomendation. Check out their website:www.farviewranch.com Christina
Re: Sleep Away Camps (with horses?) for 11-year-old girl
For a sleep away camp with horses, please check out Far View Ranch Camp. Go to www.farviewranch.com. Although the sessions are 2 weeks rather than one, the times flies by for the kids. I went there almost 40 years ago and my two kids went as long as they could and absolutely loved it. In addition to horses they have many other animals that the kids help taking care of - goats, cows, pigs, kittens, etc. The staff do a great job making sure each camper is happy and making friends. The only downside is the drive to get there as it's about 2 1/2 - 3 hours from Berkeley, but it's worth it for the kid's sakes. former camper
