Innovative Camp Design

Where Innovation Sparks Learning

The Rancho Camps Design

Rancho’s entire concept is designed to provide WOW experiences and PEAK moments for campers and parents alike. Our leadership teams spend the entire fall, winter and spring working on the smallest details to ensure each camper enjoys a summer camp experience never to be forgotten.

The Rancho Camps Innovation Commitment

Rancho is open to all kids. No prior experience is necessary. All skill levels are welcome. Our team of counselors and instructors pride themselves in their ability to scaffold lessons, activities, and instruction to ensure campers are moving at their own pace.

Regardless of whether a young child is attending camp for the very first time in Rancho Camps’ Day Camp program or is returning for her 7th summer and participating in Rancho Camps’ Game Development program, our commitment is to:

  • Nurture the innovative potential in each camper.
  • Appease the body’s need to be active and healthy.
  • Encourage participation in new activities.
  • Build self-esteem and confidence with end-of-week take-home projects (physical or digital) that campers may share with friends and family.
That is why we challenge all attending campers to Rancho Camps’ Innovation Challenge.

Interactive Games, Sports & Fitness

Sports, like all other areas of learning, is all about problem solving and the ability to make the adjustments.

The founder of Rancho Summer Camps has spent his entire professional life dedicating time and energy working with children and teaching them the challenges and enjoyment of both Sports and Technology. Therefore, Rancho Camps incorporates an abundance of team sports, interactive games, and fitness/movement throughout every camp day. What a way to spend a summer!

Rancho Campers Will Sleep Well At Night

Rancho campers will sleep well at night after a fun-filled, action-packed camp day! We believe there is a direct correlation between the movement of the body and an enhanced capacity for the developing mind to innovate and create. Therefore, there is no shortage of daily indoor and outdoor activities and play for all young campers attending Camp.

Each day, campers participate in a variety of movement and play, from the enjoyment of traditional sports and games to Rancho’s interactive play. All activities and games are team-based and challenge campers to either beat the clock or even their own counselors!

Our sports offerings include a fine balance between indoor and outdoor activities. Traditional indoor and outdoor sports including: GaGa, Soccer, Volleyball, Beach Games, Cornhole, and much more.

What are Interactive Games?

At Rancho Camps we like to incorporate physical activities and movement that address the Mind, Body, and Social Emotional qualities of the child.


Our goal is to foster smart and curious children – all while engaging their intelligence and learning styles using compelling activities, tools and immersive experiences.


Rancho Camps also believes that a sound body leads to a sound mind. Therefore we support health, sports, fitness and physical education leading to a quality active lifestyle.


Through interactive play, our instructors will facilitate powerful experiences to help develop confidence, empathy, self esteem, and interpersonal skills-all which are crucial for the world we live in.

In Sum

Interactive games transforms traditional camp environments into immersive and interactive spaces using a vast catalog of purposeful activities in a friendly positive environment.

Swimming & Play

Summer is hot so we like to cool down with our daily swim time. Day campers enjoy instructional swim lessons while older campers have fun during free swim. At least once a week, campers will enjoy a variety of safe, enjoyable water games – all of them well-supervised by lifeguards.
