My son calls ranch his “real school”. I call it a “real” education.

October 22, 2018 | Filed Under Testimonials | No Comments

My son Scotty has attended camps and ranch school at Chappell Ranch since 2013. There he has learned both academic and life skills through hands on experiences. He has gained self-confidence and leadership skills through problem solving, learning responsibility, having autonomy and digging inside himself to find his brave. Ranch offers a break from helicopter parents, rigid schedules and predictability. The duties of ranch call for quick thinking, adaptability, teamwork and most of all no whining! Weather, animals, the land and chores are constantly changing and shifting so being able to go with the flow is a requirement. My son calls ranch his “real school”. I call it a “real” education.
