Rancho La Puerta’s Third-Annual
Plan your best family vacation together yet…exploring nature, learning, layering the foundation for a healthy life, cooking making music, art, adventures, and having tons of plain old fun.
“Camp Kuchumaa” – August 2-9, 2014
Dreaming of a summer vacation for the whole family in 2014? Our Family Week captures the essence of an active, fascinating, satisfying— and life-enhancing—family vacation. We believe in making unforgettable family memories that also inspire living a healthier life year-’round.
Creating “Family Week” comes naturally to us. Many guests say that every week at the Ranch is like “summer camp for adults.” We took your comments seriously and created the best summer camp for the whole family that we possibly could—minus the cots, drafty cabins, and icy lake. This is no Camp Run-Amuck. Winner of Travel + Leisure magazine’s World’s Best Destination Spa award three out of four years, the Ranch prides itself on its world-class accommodations, food, service, facilities, and fitness program.
We carefully planned Family Week with opportunities to spend quality time together, active and relaxing… but also with plenty of time for adults and children alike to explore their own programs at their own pace.
Our own expert staff, joined by a great lineup of our favorite artists, musicians, photographers, and teachers, keep the pace lively. We celebrate curiosity and create magic moments. “I can do it!” and “I did it!” become the watchwords of each day. Our leaders are positive, enthusiastic members of our team that enjoy kids… of all ages.
