Unforgettable Adventures Await at Rawah Ranch

Your family vacation at Rawah Ranch just got even better! Our Children’s Program, designed for youngsters aged 4-10, offers a world of exciting activities that will keep your little cowboys and cowgirls entertained throughout your stay. While you explore the beauty of Colorado on your own adventures, our friendly and experienced Activity Coordinators will lead your children in a daily program packed with authentic ranch experiences and classic camp fun.

Activities Galore: Spark Creativity and Embrace the Outdoors

Mornings at Rawah Ranch are bursting with creativity! Children will weave dreamcatchers to ward off bad dreams, personalize leather goods with unique designs, and unleash their inner artist through wood burning and rock painting.

But the adventure doesn't stop there! Afternoon offerings include:

  • Interactive Counselor-Led Games: Channel your inner athlete with a friendly game of volleyball, four-square, capture the flag, or even a water balloon fight!
  • Panning for Gold: Strike it rich with a fun panning expedition in the river behind the lodge.
  • Pond Fishing: Cast a line and see what you can catch in our tranquil pond. This is a great introduction for younger children who might want to try fly fishing later in their stay.
  • Nature Walks and Guided Hikes: Explore the wonders of the Rawah Wilderness on a short hike led by our knowledgeable staff. Learn about the local flora and fauna, and maybe even build a secret stick fort along the way!
  • Horseback Riding in the Arena: For youngsters over 5, we offer introductory riding sessions in our arena, fulfilling their cowboy dreams!

A Program Designed for All
