Head Kid’s Counselor Mackenzie Brenneman

For more than half a century, experienced ranch counselors have refined a program that teaches children and teens skills that build confidence and independence. The program revolves around horseback riding every day. Kids age 3-5 are given pony rides, while older kids are taken on guided trail rides and given lessons in horsemanship according to their age and skill level.

In between rides, the kids flock to the Patio House to swim, play table tennis or air hockey, shoot pool or play outside. Counselors are with the children all day to supervise their activities, even during nap time for the little ones. Archery, scavenger hunts, Capture-the-Flag, volleyball, rowing boats, fishing, cookouts, hay rides and a kid’s carnival are just some of the added children’s activities. Winter offers ice skating, cross-country skiing, snowshoeing, tubing and sledding. There is also a supervised children’s center with reading, games and arts and crafts. The Teen Program includes off-site trips such as hiking and overnight camping, white water rafting and heading off for the evening to a local rodeo.

There is a balance of family time and adventure time: during breakfast and after dinner, families spend time together – then the kids are “on the ranch” the remainder of the day. At C Lazy U kids have the vacation of a lifetime and are kept busy from sunup to sundown. Adults can truly relax during their vacation on the ranch knowing that the kids are happily occupied and well cared for.
