About Camp Trinity on the Bar 717 Ranch
The Bar 717 Ranch/Camp Trinity is a mountain ranch summer camp located halfway between Redding and Eureka, in Northern California. For more than 80 years, during the summer months, Camp has welcomed boys and girls from ages 8-16 to live, work and play in the pristine wilderness as part of our large ranch family. Our mission is to provide an outdoor camp experience where children have daily opportunities to have fun, develop friendships, challenge themselves, build character, learn new skills, gain a sense of community and make their own choices. Camp's program teaches children about life on the Ranch. Campers choose freely from activities that range from horseback riding, gardening, animal care, maintenance, and improvement projects, to horseback and backpack trips, ropes challenge course, overnight campouts, campfires, singing, and much more. We seek to create an environment where kids can have fun, learn skills, work with others and most of all gain a sense of satisfaction through accomplishment. Much of our program involves campers in the day-to-day work and chores on the Ranch. By taking time to appreciate the beauty of the land, by swimming in rivers and climbing mountains, by growing gardens, raising our own food and making compost, we foster in campers a deep understanding and appreciation of the environment.
