Bar 717 Ranch Online Trading Post Open - Get Your Camp Gear!

closebballWe’re excited to announce that Camp has launched an online store! In the Bar 717 Ranch Trading Post, we’ve gathered a few items that can help you feel close to Camp even when you’re far from the ranch.

For our initial store campaign, we’re offering several clothing designs as well as water bottles, songbooks, and camp CDs! You can browse all of the items here.

Some of the designs should look familiar — we’ve featured and updated some of the classic designs from 85 years of camping on the Bar 717 Ranch.

If you are coming to camp this summer, you can also choose the “Free” shipping option and we will have your items ready for you when you arrive at camp!

Wilderness First Aid Course at Bar 717 Early June 2018

Bar 717 Ranch has partnered with NOLS to offer a Wilderness First Aid Course at the Ranch each summer. This year’s course will be in early June 2018.

Whether spending time in the backcountry is your passion or your profession, you should never have to ask, “What do I do now?” In this fast-paced and hands-on course, you will learn how to prepare for the unexpected. The NOLS Wilderness Medicine Institute’s (WMI) curriculum includes many advanced topics that other programs leave out such as dislocation reduction and epinephrine administration. In just two days, you will have the knowledge, skills and ability to make sound decisions in emergency situations.

This course is ideal for trip leaders, camp staff, outdoor enthusiasts and individuals in remote locations. WMI’s course is pre-approved by such organizations as the American Camping Association, the United States Forest Service, and other government agencies. This course does not include CPR.

Enrollment is open to the public. If you’re interested, please contact or call 530-628-5992.
