A decision by the City has been made to cancel all public and school tours at the Camarillo Ranch Property, effective immediately and until further notice, to protect our most vulnerable community members which are elderly and those with respiratory illnesses. This comes after receiving guidelines provided by the California Public Health Department to encourage social distancing to protect the public an slow the rate of transmission, “The timely implementation of aggressive strategies that create social distance and those that reduce close contact of people not regularly together, including limiting gatherings, has proven effective in prior pandemics at delaying rates of transmission and reducing illness and death.” We feel that this action will help protect our docents.
PRESERVATION. EDUCATION. RESTORATION.
Send a Child to the Ranch Grant
The Camarillo Ranch Foundation’s Mission Statement states, in part, “…to foster its place in the rich history of California; to transform it into a focal point of the community for education, enrichment, and enjoyment; and to exhibit our diverse history and culture.” To support School Tours, the Foundation has initiated the “Send a Child to the Ranch” program.
Because of tremendous support from our community, we have been able to restore the Camarillo Ranch House, Red Barn, and Victorian gardens, and the completion of the historic video, The Camarillo Ranch Story. The Foundation is continually striving to make the Camarillo Ranch a focal point of the community and to educate individuals about our rich history.
