- Sienna Ranch was previously known as Deer Hill Ranch
My kids have done Sienna Ranch camps and I highly recommend them. The staff are wonderful and they get a lot of hands time working with the farm animals and in the garden. They also have a horse focused camp among many other specialty camps.
If you're willing to go through the tunnel (and can do a pricier camp), Sienna Ranch runs farm camps that are supposed to be great. Fairyland's camps have a little animal interaction (but it's not a focus). The Oakland SPCA also runs a camp focused more on pets and pet care.

Sienna Ranch in Lafayette offers a variety of nature based,outdoor programs for kids 3-14. They have several classes that are specifically for homeschoolers that run from 9:00-1:00ish. You can choose 1 day or more. The teachers are great and the location is serene (and surprisingly just off the freeway in Lafayette). My son has attended their summer camps for several years and Sienna Ranch is his favorite camp by far.It's a magical place. Check them out at www.siennaranch.net Emily

Deer Hill Ranch is now Sienna Ranch and they still do birthday parties and also run some great classes and camps. They have all kinds of farm animals and I think they offer pretty much the same programs as Deer Hill did. Great place! www.siennaranch.net TC
