It started one week ago. I will go on for another two weeks. The Kids Weeks at Echo Valley Ranch keep everybody on the go. With lots of fun and laughter, they are an adventure for kids and parents alike.
Echo Valley Ranch is usually a quiet place where our guests can forget about the hustle and bustle of everyday life. For three weeks in summer, however, everything is a bit different. It is a little louder; the guests definitely run around a little more, and plenty of laughter and action going on. The 2011 Kids Weeks at Echo Valley Ranch have begun and the kids are the center of attention.
Kids Weeks at EVR are anything but boring. There are many activities for the little ones, with horseback riding at the top of the list, of course. Whether in the form of riding lessons and pony games in the arena, or on a guided trail rides through the great outdoors with their breathtaking scenery, the kids will feel like little cowboys or cowgirls riding one of our 24 guest horses.
Scavenger hunts, badminton, barbeques and campfires
Apart from horseback riding, Taylor, our kids’ counsellor, has a great repertoire of kids’ games and activities ensuring that the parents will have some time to enjoy one of our great spa treatments, take a quiet walk, or simply relax as well. One of the weekly kids’ activities is the EVR Scavenger Hunt, the perfect opportunity for the little ones to get to know the ranch and the other kids and do lots of running in the process. Other options include volleyball, badminton, swimming or games in the pool, or playing Frisbee with the eight Border Collies.
The highlight of the week is the two barbeques and campfire nights. The kids get to stay up a little longer, hang out with their new friends at the fire, make music, and roast marshmallows.
Whichever activities the kids like, one thing is for sure: they will go home with many new friends and great memories. At Echo Valley Ranch, we are looking forward to spending another great week with our little guests. Yihaaa!
