Our Philosophy

At Lost Creek Ranch the goal of our staff is to build self confidence and pride along with good skills both handling and riding horses. There is limited enrollment in each session so campers get a lot of one on one instruction. We encourage a fun but safe environment. We want to offer an experience that the kids will never forget, new friendships with other kids that share their same passion for horses and nature, along with a better knowledge of being "partners" with their horse.

About Our Camp:
If your child has a desire to ride and learn about horses this is the camp for them. We offer smaller size camps with lots of horse related activities, individual lessons and group arena riding where campers learn Western and English riding and most importantly good horsemanship. Other activities include games on horseback,swimming, arts and crafts, outdoor movies and bonfires. Every week we will have a demonstration from a horse related professional whether it be the local farrier, a veterinarian, or roping demonstration. Every week long session will end with a horse show for family and friends. Campers also have the option of staying for multiple weeks. They stay in our new air conditioned/ heated bunkhouse that sleeps up to 10, with a staff member. Staff is certified in Responding to Emergencies, First Aid, CPR, and we are licensed by the Health Department. Staff also has experience in working with special diets/diabetes and developmentally disabled children and adults.

Our summer programs start the second week of June. Register early, sessions fill quickly. We offer 10% off if you pay in full by March 1st! We also offer our Advanced Riding Camp. Campers must have attended 2 prior camps,or 1 camp with a year of riding lessons and be able to canter in control. If you are unsure of your child's riding level schedule an evaluation lesson with Lynette ($25). 

Lessons are offered year round for adults and children. Packages are available.

Straight from the Horses Mouth:

From a Return Campers Mom:

"...just wanted to take a minute to say again how much Lost Creek has meant to Mataya!  She literally talks of little else!  She is so excited to come back to camp.  She is participating in young author night at her school this week.  She didn’t have to think about what to write about.  Of course, her book is about Lost Creek Ranch!  After she presents it on Thursday night she asked that I make a copy and send it to you, so be expecting that soon!  Thank you so much for the work you and your staff do."

Bobbie, mom of Mataya

From a Return Camper:

"...at Camp Confidence I learned so much from how to groom a horse to how to jump! I have learned that you can't get on a horse and know how to ride. It takes time and skill. At Camp Confidence you are surrounded by girls and horses. I promise you will never be bored! For all the years to come I will never ever forget my camp memories."

Alex, return advanced camper


Here are some Thank You letters from happy campers:
These letters mean a lot to us because we not only strive to be the best riders and horsewomen but we pride ourselves on providing positive role models for the campers. It is amazing the influence that one camp can have - that lasting impression is everything to us.
