Meet the Animals at Gress Mountain Ranch Summer Camp

The nonprofit Gress Mountain Ranch in Orefield will host two week-long Ranch Camps for kids this summer from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m., July 13 to 17 and August 3 to 7. The camps teach responsible care for animals as well as leadership and teamwork skills.

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

Kids will 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 email [email protected].
