Interested in an event at the ranch?
Thanks for your interest in our Special Events. Sienna Ranch Events will only be offered 3 weekends in April.
Please Request and event through our registration site. Once requested we will reach out to confirm your event, write a contract, and collect payment.
Sienna Ranch is a unique and wonderful place to earn a badge or have a scout outing with your troop!
Scout events are hosted on Saturdays this year. Choose 2 one-hour activities. Activity selection, group size and pre-existing reservations may affect the times available for booking.

Pricing, Group Size, and COVID Precautions
All activities take place outside.
All group sizes must be 10 participants or fewer plus 2 chaperones (12 total). We require 2 chaperones with more than 4 kids. All children under 4 years old must be accompanied by an adult in a one-to-one ratio. All people staying on site during the activity portion of your event (adult or child) are considered ‘attendees’ and count towards your group total. For the safety of our animals (and for logistics in program spaces like the archery range, woodshop, etc.) we thank you for choosing the group size that accurately reflects the number of people you wish to stay on site the full duration of your event.
If you would like to have an event for more than 10 participants you will need to book two event slots at the same time so we can staff both groups. Ask the office for more questions.
Pricing: $650 for Small Party. 10 participants and 2 chaperones. No More than 12 people.
- Your $100 deposit is due upon agreement to contract and final registration.
- Event balance is due in full 3 weeks before the event. We will plan to charge the card on record unless you call ahead to make payment in another way.
Farm Animal Interaction (ages 4-12)
All ages enjoy hands-on interactions with our animal friends, whilst being encouraged to ask questions such as why domesticated animals are useful to us, and what special adaptations our animals have. Participants will brush goats, visit the sheep, visit the ducks, and hold chickens and help with collecting the eggs used by the ranch.
Nature Games (ages 6-12)
Scouts and guides ages six and older will love visiting some of Sienna Ranch’s most beloved spots like the swamp and Buckeye Tree en route to playing the most favored games of school year and summer camp. Play some of your favorite nature themed running and hiding games. Games are collaborative and encourage participants to have fun working working as a team. Nature Games is perfect for active, adventurous groups.
Shelter Building (ages 6-12)
This activity gives scouts the opportunity to work together and discuss one aspect critical to survival– protection from the elements. Groups use critical thinking to learn what aspects impact each step of the shelter building process from choosing a location, deciding which materials to harvest, technique, the importance of energy conservation in a survival scenario as well as the Leave No Trace ethics of deconstructing structures when leaving an area. This activity will focus on creating a practical debris shelter.
Interactive Garden Experience (ages 4-12)
Scouts and guides ages four and older help with the seasonal upkeep of our educational garden. Learn the layers that make up our compost lasagna, seed, transplant and weed our organically-tended garden beds, take part in sheet mulching, water with rain barrel and gray water systems, explore vermicomposting and maybe even help with harvesting our Farm Stand goodies. We’ll strive to harvest a seasonal treat too when possible!
Archery (ages 8-12)
Our experienced archery instructors introduce the basics of archery safety, shooting form and technique to scouts and guides ages eight and older. Participants hone their aim with target practice on our picturesque archery range. Note: Sienna Ranch is an approved archery vendor for the Scouts.
