Our whole mission is to create rich experiences.

We want Ruby Ranch to provide kids with the opportunity to free play, build with their hands and interact with animals at every class we offer. We want to teach kids about the farm, how to safely handle tools and let their creativity shine during our classes. Check out our calendar for our Tinkergarten classes and day camps OR Sign up for classes/camps below.


Summer Day Camps

At Ruby Ranch we offer three-day mini camps (morning/afternoon sessions) for children ages 5-12. We emphasize the importance of being outdoors and engaging in hands-on experiences and exploration. We encourage all campers use their five senses to learn and discover. During their time we will focus on respecting each other, the animals, the plants and ourselves. At every camp we will interact with the animals, tend to the garden, go on hayrides, try food from the garden, play games/relays/scavenger hunts and make crafts. You may sign up for one camp or all 5!

Tinkergarten CLASSES

These are 75 minute classes that parents attend. 

We will start with an opening activity, then circle time to greet each other, sing, act, read and set up the children for the lesson of the day. Then there will be a time to gather the daily supplies with your child. After that we will come back together to create, play and get messy. At the end we will enjoy a snack and talk about what we learned! We always hope children and parents take something that they learned to apply to play in their own parks and/or backyard!
