It’s Time to Enroll Your Child for Summer Camp!


Located in beautiful central Minnesota, the Circle R Ranch is a unique Summer Horse Camp that offers a rich experience for youngsters ages 7 through 17. The Circle R Ranch is an 800-plus acre working ranch. Crops are grown consisting of corn, oats and hay. Besides the 200 plus horses, there are many other animals for the children’s enjoyment. Dogs, kittens, cats, and rabbits just to name a few of the animals around the ranch.


The summer horse camp season runs the beginning of June through the end of August of each year. The main bunkhouse has large deck, a walk-out basement, recreation room, dining room and kitchen. Bunkhouse and cabins house campers and counselors. The swimming pool, tennis court, arts & crafts and camp store add to the summer enjoyment and are just around the corner from the bunkhouse and corral.

Meals are served cafeteria-style and everyone helps themselves to as much as they want, including seconds. Beyond a doubt, the trail rides are the most pleasurable activity on the ranch. Miles of trails ensure different trail ride scenery each day. The rolling hills and beautiful woods even riding to campout for the night makes for interesting riding.


One of the goals at the Circle R Ranch is to teach youngsters the safe way to ride and handle horses. Instructors give basic instruction on horsemanship. Each child learns to groom, and saddle a horse. Horses are assigned as to the child’s riding capability for the coming week. Our staff members are well qualified people of college age with the requirements to see that each young wrangler gets the most out of his or her stay at the Circle R Ranch. All activities at the Circle R are supervised by CRR staff.
