Getting Teens Unplugged This Summer

Have you started planning your summer activities yet? Whether you home school or not, summer is a perfect time to find some new educational adventures for your family, and I’m already researching our options.

Even though I don’t have teenagers — yet! — I’m putting Elk Creek Ranch on our future to-do list. Elk Creek is located 40 miles outside of Cody, Wyoming, and offers teens a unique summer camp experience in the traditional ranch setting of the Wild West. Family owned and operated since the 1960s, it’s a rustic type of experiential learning that will prepare them for college and beyond.

Campers get to spend 4 weeks as a cowboy or cowgirl — wrangling and feeding horses, building barns, backpacking, fishing and learning about Western Horsemanship. Teens learn about teamwork, hard work and leadership, giving them a chance to meet and work with new people in a collaborative setting. Best of all, they spend 4 weeks far away from iPads, TV and Facebook — unplugging from social media so they can plug in to real life.

Visit Elk Creek’s website for more information on their summer camp program, including details on the application process. Don’t wait — spots for Summer 2012 are filling up fast.

  1. This place looks so beautiful! What a fun way to get kids minds on something besides electronics for a whole month. This looks like so much fun and very educational. I never went to summer camps when I was younger and I my daughter went to one for a wk during the school yr for 4 days when she was in 6th grade. She had so much fun!
    This is definitely a great thing for kids! Thanks for the great review!
