Literacy Project 2017Rosie's Ranch is giving every day camper and every Parent and Tot Family a copy of the book, Horses and Ponies. We have ordered 400 books to give away. Our campers will be reading to each other, reading to the horses and ponies and will take the book home at the end of the week. Join us in funding this project.
Camper's Clubhouse Needs FinishingJoin the Rosie's Ranch family for our Spring work day. We are focusing on the Camper's Club House Project that needs its final touches.
Volunteer your time, send items, or make a donation and we will do the work. We need: front decorative door (barn door style), insulation, and interior sheet rock. It's home away from home for many of our day campers! The Camper's Clubhouse provide a sense of community and a safe place where we are all the same...viewing the horses from the bay window. This inspires conversation, drawing and writing. Join us!
