About the Event
Please note: Check-in for Ranch Academy in 2024 is from 7PM-8PM Sunday night. This is so we get a full day of riding on Monday! Earlier drop-off is allowed for return participants--they know the drill on tent set up, etc. We will be in church until 6:30/45. Feel free to join us for church on Sunday at 5:30 on the ranch!
We are excited to be hosting the 3 day, 3 night Cavvietta Ranch Academy this summer. This is for girls aged 10-17. These young ladies will be learning the ins and outs of ranching, from feeding and fencing and other daily chores, to riding out to check and doctor stock. They’ll also spend time in the saddle strengthening their horsemanship and stockmanship skills. There will be time spent fishing and sitting around the campfire exchanging cowboy stories. Participants should be ready to pitch a tent and come hungry for cowboy grub on this 3 day/3 night stay on rolling green pastures in Elm City, NC. Girls may bring their own mounts or use one from our cavvy! Opportunities for Bible Study during the week as well. You MUST come willing to learn! We supply 3 meals on Monday and Tuesday, 2 meals Wednesday. Snacks throughout the day are also provided.
