Scholarships Still Available for Circle V Ranch Camp Sessions

Society of St. Vincent de Paul organizes themed weeks for children ages 7 to 13

Scholarships for summer camp are available for a few remaining spots for the camp sessions at Circle V Ranch Camp in the Santa Ynez Valley.

“The scholarships, or ‘camperships’ as we call them, allow kids from the city to spend a great week at our Circle V Ranch Camp in the Santa Ynez Valley. We have just a few spots left open,” said David Fields, executive director of the Society of St. Vincent de Paul, which operates the Circle V Ranch Camp. “We appreciate the generosity of our donors and the ongoing donations to out thrift stores, which provides income to fund the camp and our campership scholarship program.”

Located just a few minutes from downtown Santa Barbara but a world away for inner-city kids, the Circle V Ranch is offering “themed camp weeks” in July and August. Application deadlines for the first weeks of camp are approaching.

Nine one-week sessions will be held this year, including:

» Session 4 — July 10-15, Knights of the Round table (Medieval Times)

» Session 5 — July 18-23, Carnival Week

» Session 6 — July 23-28, Hawaiian Vacation Week

» Session 7 — Aug. 1-6, Circle V’s Got Talent Week

» Session 8 — Aug. 6-11, Disney Week

» Session 9 — Aug. 12-17, Safari Adventure Week

There is still time for parents and guardians to fill out applications to send children to camp this summer. For registration and other information, call 323.224.6213.

The cost for a six-day, five-night stay at the camp is $350 for all activities, meals and a field trip. To be eligible to attend camp, children must be age 7 to 13.

— Ray Lopez is the director of Circle V Ranch Camp.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
