We made it safely to the Ranch last night! We were greeted by some snow and rice krispies treats! We’ve had a chance to meet all the Ranch staff and learn some of the rules and expectations. We got a good night’s sleep and this morning we had a hot breakfast. The rest of our day will be spent doing some academics, including spending a lot of time at the barn meeting all the Ranch animals!
Check back tomorrow for a bunch of photos from today’s activities!
Here are some of the things our students had to say about today:
We did rotations between learning about the horses, completing packets, and doing group games. — Chloe Clark
All the RAs are amazing and terribly nice. We couldn’t have been better taken care of. The rooms are comfortable and the views are just breathtaking. Food here is absolutely delicious. We had three groups today and three different activities. We all got a chance to do everything. We got to meet all the animals. We also had games that helped us get to know each other and open up. Yes some things were personal, but that was by choice. — Karla Pardo
At the ranch it’s a constant flurry of activity. We’re learning more about nature, ourselves, and the people around us. But there is something that always stays the same here. We’re all friends in these mountains. — Luis Romero
