Why your child will love Mo-Ranch Summer Camp:
Fun and activities
Mo-Ranch has something for every camper. Whether your child seeks adventure, classic camp activities, or is into the arts, Mo-Ranch has it all! We offer activities ranging from rappelling off the Cat Walk and whizzing down our 480 foot zip line, to swimming in the crystal clear water of the Guadalupe River, to creating a masterpiece under the tutelage of a professional artist.
Friendships are an integral part of the camp experience. There is something about living in a community together that encourages friendships to develop, grow, and flourish. Whether it is because of the screen-free day to day life that allows more time to connect, the successes and failures experienced side by side, or camp traditions that are practiced together year after year, camp friends often become lifelong friends.

Benefits of Overnight Camp:
At Mo-Ranch Summer Camp, it’s all about enjoying the ride. Unlike at home, where oftentimes emphasis is put on getting straight A’s or making the top team in sports, at Mo-Ranch you are present in the moment and able to enjoy each activity or new adventure without added pressures or expectations. Campers are free to be their true selves.
Ability to “Better Read” Peers
Unplugging is good! A recent study shows that sixth graders that gave up all technological devices cold turkey for just five days and attended outdoor camp were substantially better at reading human emotions than their peers that didn’t. In a world full of smartphones, tablets, computers, and TVs, your child might balk at the idea of not having access to screens during their time at Mo-Ranch. However, upon arrival until departure on the last day, technology will be the last thing on your child’s mind. Your child will enhance their critical thinking and problem-solving skills, engage in teamwork, and build friendships – all while communicating face-to-face. In today’s society these skills are often hard to develop and grow when many aspects of one’s everyday life centers around screens.
Children learn to figure things out without their parents, live with other kids, become an engaged member of a community, and discover their likes and dislikes by trying out new things. These are invaluable lessons that are imperative for a successful adult life.
Healthy Risk Taking
Whether it’s taking a fish off the line for the first time, or taking the lead role in a group skit, camp can nudge a child outside comfort zones. Camp is a great place for a child to try something new in a safe environment!
