These crazy activities are sure to leave campers laughing. Pure fun and nonsense. Trenting can be anything from chicken catching, seaweed-monster dress up, or ambushing other activites with songs!
We teach children how to grow the food that we eat; campers learn to shuck corn, pick beans, and take care of gophers in our garden.
Saturday nights are spent around the campfire roasting 'smores, swapping stories, and singing songs!
We have sailboats, canoes, kayaks, fishing nooks, and even a ropeswing on our own private lake!
Every session campers have an opportunity to go on an overnight backpacking trip.
We have one of the most comprehensive horseback riding programs in California. Our campers learn Western and bareback riding, as well as cattle herding and trail riding. Lessons are given daily for all levels, from the first time rider to the advanced wrangler.
On Friday nights we put on our best clothes and share song and dance in front of the barn--always a camper favorite.
There are plenty of rocks around to climb at JRC. Our staff teaches basic rock climbing skills like belaying and rapelling.
During morning chores, you might get the chance to milk the JRC cow, a unique way to start the day!
Once a session we move the kitchen outside and the camp directors prepare a special breakfast for all of camp--but you'll have to earn your pancakes with good catching skills.

Sometimes, it's OK to play at the dining table--campers and counselors hunker down on fresh corn from the garden, seeing who can make the best nibble face.
Our campers are a talented bunch, and each session we let them show off their skills at the talent show.
