Educational Days

Homeschooling families are welcome to take advantage of any of WLD Ranch's programs, but our Educational Days are designed with homeschooling families in mind. Our Educational Days include Cowboy Days, Pioneer Days, and Nature Days. Each day runs from 9:30am until 1:30pm. If you are interested in registering your family for an Educational Day, please contact Christy.

Cowboy Day invites you to step into the boots of a cowboy as we explore cattle drives, brands, and cowboy dress. Other options include a cowboy lunch, horseback riding, and lassoing and trick roping.

Pioneer Day brings pioneer life into focus as we explore the Oregon Trail. We will also learn about Marcus and Narcissa whitman, famous pioneers, and discover the ins and outs of pioneer life. Other options include an Oregon Trail game, making candles, or enjoying a horse-drawn wagon ride.

Nature Day involves exploring God's creation using our five senses. This day is recommended for ages 10 and older due to the outdoor activities planned, including hiking, nature scavenger hunts, and identifying trees and leaves.

Teachers of public or private school students, contact Christy to find out if an Educational Day is available for your group.
