Summer Camp

The Best Part of Summer : Camp!

Summer Camp at Happy Acres Ranch offers your child a unique opportunity to experience a summer camp setting without ever having to leave the city! Our outdoor program focuses on traditional camp experiences in a natural, relaxed setting. All activities are done on site. We provide a wide variety of activities for our campers including:

  • Swimming (Lake & Pool)
  • Ecology / Nature
  • Arts and Crafts
  • Camp Wide Special Events
  • Fishing
  • Archery
  • Camp Games & Sport
  • Kayaking/Canoeing
  • Horseback Riding (additional charge) 

Campers may enroll for selected weeks or all summer! You pick the schedule that fits your family’s busy summer plans.

New to our summer camp? Book your camp tour through our Facebook page to learn about our program and make sure we’re the right fit for your camper! All new families are required to tour and check off on the enrollment questionnaire that they have read and understood our current Summer Camp Parent Handbook. The handbook has the ins and outs of our camp policies in this year’s 2023 Summer Camp Parent Handbook.

Summer 2023 Session

This year, we’ve intentionally decided to keep our camp size smaller and highlight the use of our amazing 10 acre property for an “old school Happy Acres experience”. We will not be including any trendy themes, unlike most camps in Jax. Our focus will be on giving kids a detox from their usual fast paced, technology-centered environment. We will still continue our special weekly camp-wide events.
Week 1) June 5 – 9                 
Week 2) June 12 – 16              
Week 3) June 19 – June 23    
Week 4) June 26 – 30 
Week 5) July 3 – 7      
Week 6) July 10 –14
Week 7) July 17 – 21
Week 8) July 24 – 28
Week 9) July 31 – Aug 4
Week 10) Aug 7 – 11

All campers will need to bring a packed lunch and afternoon snack. Camp store at the Snack Shack will still be available for purchase at the time of registration.

Camper drop-off for all families will be at 8am or after. We will no longer be offering before care. Drop-off before 8am will result in a $1/min fee.

Camper pick-up will end at 4:30pm. Pick up after 4:30pm will result in a $1/min fee. After care from 4:30pm until 6pm can be purchased by the week during registration for a flat rate of $50/wk/child.
