Welcome to Circle V Ranch Camp!
One of the most valuable ways of instilling self-esteem into a child’s life is through outdoor programs that help children grow and acquire important social, emotional, cognitive, and physical skills that otherwise would not be possible in a classroom setting. In June, July and August each year, children ages seven through 13 enjoy a traditional residential “sleepover” camp at Circle V. With a choice of eight sessions, each six days/5 nights—all are filled with activities including hiking, swimming, nature walks, beach day, archery, arts and crafts, painting, photography, baseball, basketball, ping pong, foosball, soccer, miniature golf, campfires, skits and songs. Children and their counselors stay in air-conditioned cabins or canvas tents. Three nutritious daily meals are served family-style in the Dining Lodge (also known as the Chuck House.) All children are fully supervised by caring, trained counselors and long-time staff. Each session has a theme ranging from “Carnival” to “Medieval” to “Super Heroes” and others that provide even more opportunities to learn, grow, and become part of the Circle V Ranch Camp family.
C.I.L.T. (Camper In Leadership Training) Program
Opportunities for Campers in Leadership Training (CILT) are offered for ages 14-17 and seek to continue their personal growth and development as youth leaders. CILTs work under the direct supervision of the CILT Director who trains participants in group sessions and one-on-one mentoring to work with our most experienced counselors, to assist with campers and participate in the team building effort. This leadership program aims to help young people discover their strengths, make decisions, set goals, solve problems and resolve conflicts. As a result, these teens experience a feeling of accomplishment, acquire on-the-job skills, develop important social expertise, and receive spiritual guidance that will help them become productive citizens, prepare for higher education and plan for a successful future. Volunteering at Circle V Ranch Camp is more than a job! Although extremely rewarding, it is a volunteer position that requires a lot of hard work an can be very challenging at times. The CILT application process is not a guaranteed volunteer position and has limited spaces available per session. Candidates will be selected based on written essay, references and phone interview.
