Circle V Ranch booth is a hit at Kids Expo in Santa Barbara




Fun was had by hundreds of families at the Circle V Ranch Camp booth last Saturday at the Kids Expo in Santa Barbara (La Cumbre Plaza). Besides handing out flyers about the upcoming summer camp season, a popular activity was held at the booth - making pine cone bird feeders just like campers do at Circle V Ranch Camp. The activity was a huge hit for not only the children, but for the parents and grandparents.

For more information about attending Circle V Ranch Camp this summer, please call 323-224-6213 or 805-688-5252.
