DAY CAMPS:

We are happy to announce this summer we will be offering day camps for those who want to experience our ranch day program summer activities with the campers, but cannot afford or are not ready for overnights. These are open enrollment for the month of May and after that they will be considered on a case by case basis, so sign up now! See below for more information.

Day Camp at the ranch will be from 8 am -3:00 pm M-W & 10 am - 9 pm on Thursday. Lunch will be provided each day and dinner on Thursday. Transportation will only be offered to day campers from Bryan on Thursday for an additional $10, but we encourage you to get your friends and work out a car pool.

If you are not served by Beautiful Abilities please complete an application on line, put DAY ONLY and submit the deposit on line or send application in mail with a check with the completed application. Be sure to pick the week or weeks you want to attend.

Fees:
Private pay is $125 for 4 days and includes the Thursday night dance. You can reserve your spot with a $50 deposit. You can pay the deposit online and the remainder is due by the 1st day of their camp.

If you have HCS or TxHL, provide us a contact and we will seek to contract with local providers for "day habilitation" which will cover the fees plus a $25 activity fee paid as the deposit when you apply to cover meals & activities.

If you are served by Beautiful Abilities contact your Beautiful Abilities case coordinator if you want to attend.

We are also working on a sleep over option for day campers for one night at an additional fee, so keep posted.

Hope to hear from you soon and see you there!
