Visiting is permitted only on Sundays: 
Morning Hours: 10:30 to 13:00
Afternoon Hours: 17:30 to 19:30
After visiting hours, there is a celebration for parents with the children’s best artistic creations. Parents are kindly requested not to bring perishable food items for their children, as they may spoil. Please note that there is a canteen which offers fresh healthy snacks.

When can i get in touch with my child? 

Telephone communication between parents and children is permitted in the afternoons from 17:30 to 20:00. Children can use the card phones at The Ranch Bank. We recommend that you keep communication to a minimum in the beginning so that the children can adjust smoothly to the camp environment.

Can i be in the same team/group with my friends? 

You can be in the same group with your friend, as long as you tell your parents to request this in advance!

What is "THE RANCH BANK"? 

Your children’s pocket money is deposited into the camp’s “bank” for reasons of security and so that they acquire the ability to handle their financial transactions.

Can the children bring mobile phones or electronic games? 

This is at the discretion of every parent. The Ranch takes no responsibility for the loss or damage of such devices.

How can i pick up my child from "THE RANCH"? 

The collection of children from The Ranch is only possible by the parent/guardian. If for any reason a third party will collect the child, they must have a legal document authorizing them to do so.
