The Camarillo Ranch docents are a dedicated group of men and women with a passion for Camarillo Ranch history and the legacy of Adolfo Camarillo. These volunteers tirelessly donate their time and talent and lead guided-tours in period outfits to educate the community on the life and times of the Camarillo family and the impact they had on the City, County and even the State of California. Volunteers interested in becoming a docent have the opportunity to be trained in the history for one of two different types of tours. Either House Tours which are held on Saturday – Monday from 12:00pm – 3:00pm or School Tours that are usually held from 9:00am – 12:00pm on Tuesdays and Wednesdays during the school year. No former knowledge of Camarillo history required – just a passion to ensure the history lives on!
Our Ranch Docents are central to the educational mission of the Camarillo Ranch Foundation.
Our beautiful gardens are maintained by a dedicated cadre of master gardeners through the University of California Cooperative Extension Master Gardener Program. Thanks to their hard work and skillful design, visitors to the Camarillo Ranch may enjoy a stroll through a dozen unique thematic gardens:
Oak Tree Garden
Palm Tree Garden
