Under the direction of the Program Director and Program Department Managers, our Seasonal Program Staff play a vital role in the success of Morgan's Wonderland Camp ("MWC"). This position will focus on the implementation of high-quality programming operations that help create meaningful and lasting experiences for our campers, guests, staff, and volunteers. As a member of the program team, this role is responsible for ensuring our camp program reflects and furthers the mission and values of Morgan's Wonderland Camp. As a Ranch and Nature Specialist you will be expected to work in all activity areas but will receive more specific training in facilitation of the Spur Ranch and Stockyard and will have preference when it comes to daily activity assignments.
Spur Ranch at Morgan’s Wonderland Camp offers individuals of all ages and abilities the opportunity to take part in equine and nature experiences. These experiences include arena riding, trail riding, horse grooming, and classroom style learning. The ranch staff provide campers with a greater set of skills and assistance to make their ride more successful. This includes, but is not limited to, horse leading, rider side walking, tack adaptations, assisted mounting and dismounting, etc.
The Stockyards is where campers go for interactive educational experiences. Nature staff will help create safe environments for both guests and animals to interact and for campers to learn about many of the native, and a few non-native, species we see in Texas. Staff will be expected to teach about, handle, and care for the various non-equine animals we who call Morgan’s Wonderland Camp home. This includes snakes, spiders, lizards, bugs, birds, ferrets, rabbits, goats, sheep, and other barnyard animals.
Day-to-day operational oversight of Spur Ranch and the Stockyards will be conducted by the MWC Ranch Manager.
