Circle K Ranch is home to our Equestrian Center at YMCA Camp Kern and, more importantly, is home to our herd of 60 wonderful horses that bring joy to thousands of campers and guests every year. A core part of Circle K Ranch’s offering is our residential Ranch Summer Camp program which gives hundreds of campers a horse focused, meaningful summer camp experience. Outside of our summer camp, we offer a whole range of Equine options, listed below.
