Meet the Animals at Gress Mountain Ranch Summer Camp


The nonprofit Gress Mountain Ranch in Orefield will host a Ranch Camp for three weeks this summer, from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m., June 17 to 21, July 8 to 12 and August 5 to 9.

The ranch is home to more than 50 animals that have been neglected or abused. Children from third to eight grade may sign up a week full of activities, excitement and engagement, with donkey cart rides, needle felting, games, horsemanship and more.

Kids can also work directly with the animals, feeding and caring for them and learning each of their personalities. They will learn the value of teamwork and even meet and observe a veterinarian in action for an afternoon.

Cost for an entire week is a $200 donation to the Gress Mountain Ranch. To register, call Kathryn Gress at 610-398-2122 or Tori Buser at 610-395-8514.
