Activity-Full Family Vacations
For Children and Teens
Kids love Western ranch vacations! Big summer fun, healthy outdoor activities, excellent food, kid-friendly horses and wranglers, and all kinds of memorable family adventure opportunities are literally at your doorstep when you make your all-inclusive summer vacation at The Home Ranch. A family-friendly vacation at The Home Ranch requires no advance planning, no childcare arrangements, no dinner planning, and no stress. You and your family can simply follow your individual bliss while we take care of everything else for you.
Our all-inclusive children’s program and dedicated kids counselors offer a wide menu of daily activities and adventure for kids and teens - and make it very easy for the whole family to unwind, relax, and do what they want, when they want, how they want to do it. Our counselors are available to keep your kids occupied and entertained every day of the week, from 8:30 in the morning until 9:00 at night.
Everyone in your family gets their very own horse for the week - and all of your food, lodging, local transportation, fishing gear, kids counselors, guide service, wranglers and endless on-ranch activities and adventures are included in the price of your stay.
Unfortunately, we can only accept reservations from families with children ages 6 and up.
"The children’s counselors are by far the best we have ever encountered…My children NEVER asked for their DS, iPhone, TV and best of all NEVER said they were bored." -A Mom's Quote From Trip Advisor
The Perfect Setting For Family Friendly Vacations
The gorgeous setting and kid-friendly layout of our beautiful Colorado ranch makes it the ultimate family retreat, and the ranch itself provides the perfect summer playground. We make it easy for your whole family to get out and play, as easy as stepping out the front door…
A Perfect Family Retreat, Surrounded By Wilderness
With one million acres of National Forest and Wilderness in our backyard, and 100 gentle, experienced horses in our herd, there is more than enough space and opportunity for everyone in your family to roam, ramble, ride and play.
Make Lifelong Summer Memories At The Home Ranch
A week at The Home Ranch in summertime is an excellent opportunity to make great memories and new friendships that will last a lifetime. Creating lifelong family vacation experiences and memories is the main focus of our summer season. And keeping kids and teens happy, entertained and fully-engaged with summer fun, horses and horseback riding, and endless outdoor adventure is one of our greatest pleasures.

We know that teens' interests don't always coincide with those of younger kids, so we've developed a teens program tailored to them. In addition to the regular riding, hiking, and fishing options available to everyone, teens can head to the hills for an overnight campout, or head out on the trails en masse. And there's always the rec room or pool for downtime. We tailor our program to the ages and interests of each week's group. Our enthusiastic counselors are flexible enough to adapt to what the kids want to do, assuming it's safe and fun! Parents are also encouraged to join us for activities such as rock climbing, rafting, and even lessons on barrel racing. Relais & Chateaux dining standards ensure your whole family will also enjoy wonderfully healthy and nourishing food selections!
