More About Bar 717 Ranch / Camp Trinity
Founded in 1930, the Bar 717 Ranch offers children ages 8-16 an opportunity to spend the summer on a beautiful mountain ranch. Located in Northern California on 450 acres, the Ranch is surrounded by the Shasta-Trinity National Forest. The Camp property consists of mountains and meadows, rivers and ponds for swimming and fishing, creeks for exploring and miles of trails to discover on foot or on horseback.
Through Ranch activities, the camp program emphasizes taking responsibility for oneself and others in a non-competitive, supportive environment. With the spirit of the pioneers, we work collectively toward the common goals of ranch life: friendship, fun and fulfillment through communal effort, respect for each other and an applied work ethic.
Campers may choose freely from activities including horseback riding, backpacking, gardening, animal care, river swimming, homesteading, arts and crafts, photography, riflery, music, drama, archery, blacksmithing, ceramics and much more.
