Hey, Camp Folks!
Here at Everything Summer Camp, we’re always singing the praises of nearly 300 summer camps with whom we’ve formed a great relationship. And, it’s never too early to start thinking about where you’re going to attend camp for next year’s summer season! Today we’re shining our spotlight down to Georgia where we’ll highlight Valley View Ranch Equestrian Camp for Girls.
Located on 600 acres of lush pastures, wooded trails, and panoramic views of the gorgeous Northwest corner of Georgia State, the mountainous landscape of Valley View Ranch has dazzled young women for 67 summers going back to 1954 when the camp was first founded by Jack & Olive Jones who had also been operating Camp Cloudmont for boys in Mentone, Alabama for the past six years.
Upon moving to Cloudland, Georgia, Jack and Olive dreamt of an equestrian camp for their four daughters: Nancy, Marsha, Janis, and Angela. The girls were fortunate enough to grow up at the camp and they went on to help improve and develop the riding programs at the camp.
But nowadays, Valley View Ranch is so much more than just Riding! They’ve got Archery, Hiking, Environmental Education, Swimming, Canoeing, and Kayaking, Kickball, Basketball, Tether Ball, Foosball, Ping-Pong, Horseshoes, Bean Bags, Dance, Yoga, Capture-the-Flag, Hobby Horse Tournaments. And there’s great Arts & Crafts too like Pottery, Sketching, Painting, Horseshoe Art, Knitting, Jewelry and Beadwork, Dream Catchers, Tie-Dye, and lots more.
They also love to put on Talent Shows, Skit Nights, and Scavenger Hunts. And then there’s still fun to come with trips and excursions, and other special events!
The five, large wood-framed bunkhouses are designed with swings on the porches and equipped with plumbing and electricity. Campers are divided into cabins according to their age. Five girls with at least two counselors share each bunkhouse. The girls wake up to stunning views of the surrounding beauty and the sounds from the horses as they graze in the fields outside the screened-in windows.
