Our mission is to connect people with nature through outdoor recreation and experiential learning.
Circle R Ranch (est. 1966) is a summer camp and outdoor education centre located on a diverse 220 acres of Carolinian forest, fields, ponds, and is bordered by the Dingman creek watershed.
In the summer, campers get to connect with nature and ride horses daily. Other activities include canoeing, swimming, archery, campfires and team building. At Circle R campers develop life-long friendships, self esteem, empathy, bushcraft and stewardship skills, cooperation, as well as be inspired to learn and live in wonder of the natural world.
In the fall and spring, we offer western horseback trail riding and lessons. During the winter, cross country skiing and snowshoeing are available. Outdoor education programming is offered in the fall, winter, and spring for schools and other groups. We also provide facility rental, birthday parties, wagon rides, and more. We welcome all feedback and invite you to like us on Facebook to receive notifications of upcoming events.
Circle R continues to monitor the global COVID-19 situation. Our top priority is the health and safety of our campers, our staff, and our communities.
