Kids' summer ranch camp kicks off season


Circle V Ranch Camp in the Santa Ynez Valley has begun accepting applications and scholarship requests for its eight 2017 summer sessions, each of which features a different theme.

The sessions, which run from the end of June through the end of August, offer outdoor activities such as archery, hiking, swimming, sports, and campfires—along with educational components, such as nature lessons, according to a press release from Circle V. Campers stay in cabins or canvas tents, with no access to TV, radio, or internet.

Each session runs for six days and five nights, and goes for $450. But Camp Director Ray Lopez said in the press release that everyone should have the opportunity to attend, regardless of financial situation.

“No child is turned away, since we have camperships to help pay the fees due to generous donors,” Lopez said in the release.

Interested parents can contact the camp’s main registration office at (323) 224-6213 for more information, or apply online at
