•Safe •Fun •Challenging - ORME RANCH CAMP: “The Best in the West!”
This oasis-like setting is nestled within a 26,000 acre working cattle ranch only 1hr North of Phoenix (a lot cooler!). Amazing features include modern health center, dorm-like bunkhouses, extensive equestrian facilities, olympic pool, athletic fields, gymnasium, beautiful dining hall (unlike any other), art studios, and much more!
- Primarily a horsemanship camp, if your camper has never been on a horse, they’ll learn to groom, saddle and ride “from the hoof up.”
- If your camper already rides, they’ll improve their skills with fun choices like roping, barrel racing, pole bending, jumping, & more!
- Our well trained guides take campers over hundred of scenic trails - some of the west’s last remaining vistas.
- Regardless of your child’s riding level or interest, our CHA certified instructors offer superior instruction in both Western and English riding disciplines.
When not in the saddle, your camper chooses from a wide variety of activities:
- Native American Art
- Desert Survival
- AND MUCH MORE!
Weekly field trips find our campers exploring Montezuma’s Castle, cheering at the Frontier’s Days Rodeo & Parade, and visiting histoic Jerome or Flagstaff.
Optional academics (through The Orme School of Arizona) are also available while still enjoying the fun of summer. Established by one of Arizona’s pioneer families in 1929, Orme is proudly accredited by the American Camp Association. Two to eight week sessions begin June 16. Each session features a special theme in addition to the regular horsemanship and other activities listed above. See our session themes below. Accepting applications now!
