Dude Ranch Life: Kids Unplugged

Each member of the ranch team brings their own passions to their areas of the ranch. With Mandy’s background as an educator, her love of the outdoors, and enjoyment introducing children to the natural world, she is finding more and more ways to weave her passions into the kids, tween, and teen programs.

Without making major shifts to the much-loved events of these programs, she is adding a layer to each experience that helps children be more mindful of the beautiful details around them and their experiences in the outdoors, embrace what it feels like to unplug, and raise their awareness of the layers of discovery they can have by being observant. What a gift in our age of constantly looking at screens and being so busy that we don’t have time to stop and appreciate the magnificence in the things.
