The Circle V Ranch Camp has long been a retreat for generations of happy campers in and around the Central Coast.

Now the camp is reopening for the first time since the Whittier Fire forced the camp’s closure in 2017.

“We are so grateful to so many volunteers and community members who have hepled us raise funds and worked to make our reopening a reality,” said camp director Ray Lopez.

Lopez has been working with the camp since 2008. He says the camp has fully recovered after its health lodge, craft cabin and water treatment facilities were damaged in the fire.

“Our staff and I are all so blessed to be able to welcome everyone back again,” he said.

Circle V Ranch Camp offers six-day, five-night summer sessions of traditionally supervised fun for boys and girls and leadership training for teens. Campers enjoy a range of activities such as archery, hiking and a variety of nature, crafting and sports exercises.

Registration for the camp begins April 15. For more, visit the Circle V Ranch Camp website.
