Children & Teen's Dude Ranch Vacation Programs At Rainbow Trout Ranch

Children's Program:

For children aged three and older we offer supervision by qualified counselors and full daytime activities. All the programs are optional so that families can spend as much time together as they wish, or everyone can go their different ways. We find that the children love doing the activities with their counselors and children their own age, while parents enjoy being able to go out on longer rides or on day-trips knowing their children are safe and having the time of their lives.

Children’s activities include riding, both in the arena and on trails with plenty of expert instruction, fishing, hiking, nature study, swimming, western crafts, PB&J lunch rides and more. One of their favorite activities is a “hot-dog and s’mores” roast followed by a long hayride into the forest as evening falls on a Friday night.

Children six and older—the “Cowpokes”—are given their own horse for the week and can go on the trails. The little “Buckaroos” (3-5 year olds) will be led on short rides around the barn and river area by the counselors. Our kid’s horses are exceptional and they will meet each child’s ability level and help them to improve tremendously throughout their stay here at the ranch.

Whether learning to swing a rope, singing on the hayride, doing their first barrel run or catching their first rainbow, children will love their Rainbow Trout Ranch experience.

Teen Program:

We have a fun ranch teen-program, less structured than the kids’ programs (thus allowing for that much needed teen independence), and including riding, hiking, RTR  Mountain Frisbee Golf and more with the teen counselor. The counselor will meet with the teens on Sunday night and they will map out their week activities together.

If they choose to go off-ranch, day-trips include an abandoned gold mine, the Colorado Gator Farm and the amazing National Sand Dunes Monument with giant dunes that provide for lots of fun.  But most of the time, they prefer to stay at the ranch, having wonderful adventures and making new friends.

Feel free to contact us anytime for more info on the teen or any other of our programs—we truly understand that as parents, if your children are having fun, you will have fun and we make it a priority.
