About the Provider

Description: Bar-T first welcomed kids and their families into the Bar-T Ranch Summer Camp in 1961 and we are proud of the positive impact that we have had on generations of area families over the last 50 plus years. Today, Bar-T has expanded well beyond the grounds of the Ranch Summer Camp to provide area families, individuals and businesses with unique experiences by offering the very best in after-school childcare, summer day camps, outdoor education, corporate team building and events. Our mission, our philosophy and the Bar-T culture all guide our staff to respect each of the kids and adults that participates in our programs as individuals, working to provide meaningful choices throughout all aspects of our programs. We go beyond creating environments that help to ensure both physical and emotional safety by listening, showing respect and helping each member of our community remember that they are of great worth.
