What about lost items of the children?

We advise parents that when leaving children out of camp, they should be careful when collecting their children's personal belongings.

If any object is forgotten, however, The Ranch gathers whatever it can find in a special place inside the camp. The parent can contact the camp in case that the item he or she is looking for, has been found. The camp is willing to assist whenever requested (as much as possible).

Bear in mind that the camp is not responsible for the loss of children's belongings. After all, The Ranch's consistent instruction to parents is not to provide their children with high-value items.
