Mission Statement: Sienna Ranch connects Bay Area youth to nature through compelling outdoor programs to cultivate a more compassionate and environmentally aware future.
Sienna Ranch offers year round programming to all types of kids. Our 2020-2021 School Year Sessions are 4 weeks long with 5 day a week classes or 4 day a week classes.
For Public and Private Registered Schools Kids, this year we are offering programs catered to fit the AM/PM alternative schedules and distance learning schedules the school districts are instituting in the fall. We hope that when you aren’t physically at your school you can come learn outside at Sienna Ranch.
Registration for Session 2A opens Wednesday September 16th, 2020 at 10:00am!

My daughter is loving her [distance] ranch class so much! The isolation has been hard, but her little face lights up when she sees you and her friends. She struggles with change and disruptions to her routine, but she has been 100% positive about zoom ranch. No hesitation or anxiety at all. Thank you for all you do!

Jr Rancher Family
I have to say that when I visited the camp for the first time I wanted to cry just at the possibilities for my son. He came home today and talked for HOURS and HOURS about his first day, he was so excited and so very happy. I am so happy for him It brings tears to my eyes, and touches a soft spot in my heart to see him so excited. He absolutely LOVED it!!! He is a very deserving child to have such kindness come his way, as are all children.

He really enjoyed the sit spot activity. He saw a duck in the pool, a hawk, lots of birds and flowers. Thanks for still feeding his soul even if remotely! I really wish the schools were half as good!

I just wanted to comment that both of my boys are in this program right now and absolutely love it. When I pick them up they are all smiles and can’t wait to tell me all about what they did… I still can’t believe they got my son who is the worlds pickiest eater to eat a leaf!

4 of my kids have had their classes so far today and they’ve all enjoyed it immensely! Seriously blown away at the flexibility and creativity Sienna Ranch has shown in getting this program transitioned online.

My son LOVED his day in the Fundamentals of Survival. He is begging me to go again for the next two days.

Both my girls are in Sophia’s gardening extensions on Friday and we got inspired and they want to plant!

There is no other camp or class that my girls come home from more happy, more centered, and more themselves. That is why Sienna Ranch is the cornerstone activity for my girls, and we build their schedules around it! Their time at Sienna Ranch is so special and so different than their time anywhere else. They are kept busy and active, but in a low-key way. The amazing counselors can be flexible and take the conversation or the day’s activities where the kids’ curiosity leads them. The kids are allowed to fully immerse in what they’re doing without being rushed off to the next directed activity. They are allowed to explore, open their imaginations and develop a relationship with the natural world. Their time at Sienna Ranch is low-key but highly active. Kids spend a lot of time sitting still these days, but can get all their wiggles out and develop improved coordination and confidence through the activities at Sienna Ranch. Our kids’ days are highly structured; Sienna Ranch offers a special haven from the rush and high expectations, a place where they can settle in and watch a ladybug, smell the dirt, and chew on a fava bean leaf in a safe and loving environment.
