  • Kootenai Creek Ranch Summer Day Camp 2014 Update: We regret to inform you that due to a recent surgery and recovery  of our co-director and art instructor, Marina Weatherly, the popular and enduring Summer Day Camps will not take place this summer 2014. Marina is doing well, but faces a long recovery period and will spend it creating and writing at the ranch surrounded by  beauty, nature and of course horses- the best medicine for good health! We apologize to all the wonderful and loyal students and families that look forward to this unique, joyful and exciting learning experience at Kootenai Creek Ranch each summer.  This is the first year in 22 years that we have not offered the camps, but we look forward to resuming in 2015. Please note below that Malika Coston will be offering Horsemanship Camps for Youth this summer.
