About This Activity

Apprentices in this program complete classes that will combine hands-on practical animal care training as well as instruction in history, diets, enclosure setups, and care protocols for the animals we care for at Sienna Ranch including horses, goats, sheep, ducks, and chickens. After completing the training class, students will participate in a minimum of 2 weeks of onsite Apprenticeship for the Sienna Ranch Summer Camps. Students will learn how to properly care for the variety of animals at the ranch by learning stall cleaning, nutrition, care, and behavior. Special focus will be on horse care including mucking, leading, grooming, and tacking NOTE: Students must apply for the apprenticeship program. Apprentices from previous years do not need to apply and will be automatically given a spot. After completion of class and summer apprenticeship, students may be eligible for continuing in the 2021-2022 school year apprenticeship. The Sienna Ranch Animal Care Apprenticeship Program is highly selective and an incredibly valuable learning experience. A strong commitment is required for this program. Apprentices will be required to attend all classes during the session, the one training day in May to prepare for summer, and a minimum of 2 summer camp sessions. Participants will report to the Animal Care Manager (ACM). This program is an opportunity for teens to further grow their animal care knowledge, leadership skills, and gain valuable work experience as a part of a team. Requirements for the Class: Must be able to attend all classes with a minimum of 2 weeks’ commitment onsite for summer camp (May 30-August 12) Ages 13-16 Comfortable around farm animals, including horses, goats, sheep, chickens, ducks, and cats Patience for animals and children Ability to lift up to 30 pounds An interest in learning new skills Ability to work independently and in a team environment Ability to work outdoors in all weather conditions
