At Hidden Pines Ranch, children discover endless opportunities for new adventures. They choose activities individually and in groups with friends. The natural setting stimulates the urge to invent, explore and learn about nature.

What sets Hidden Pines Ranch apart from other summer programs is our focus on skill development. Campers progress through established skill levels at their own pace and are rewarded for their achievements at our daily flag ceremonies. Whether it’s an old favorite or a skill just learned, when campers experience success and are celebrated for that, they develop confidence. Confidence breeds more success, and this positive cycle repeats itself daily in HPR’s Traditional Camp program.

Available sessions and fees available on the Traditional Camp pricing page.
