Ranch plays host to kids for first 'ranch camp' of season

OREFIELD TWP., Pa. - Some local children are learning about life on the ranch in the Lehigh Valley.

Gress Mountain Ranch, in Orefield, Lehigh Co., is hosting its first ranch camp of the summer this week.

The camp is for kids from 3rd through 8th grades.They get to participate in arts and crafts, games and other activities. They also get to learn about all the animals at the ranch, including pigs, donkeys, goats, horses and alpacas.

"I think that it's nice for them to interact with these animals and learn that not only can people help animals, but animals can help people, as well, which is our mission here at the Gress Mountain Ranch," said Tori Buser, ranch camp co-coordinator.

Two more sessions of ranch camp will be held this summer, one in July; the other in August.
