Bravo Ranch Trip 2016 – Full!

Hi Stroller Hikers!

The Bravo Ranch camping trip filled in record time this year.  :)

If you didn’t get a chance to grab your spot, Debbie (gumbyallen@yahoo.com) will take the first 6 families responding to put on a waiting list (this announcement will be revised once that list is full).  Last year, we were able to reach out to 4 families on our waiting list, before the trip.  It’s great to have such a positive community of campers.  If you didn’t get a spot – never fear – camping abounds in the Bay Area, and public campgrounds are open year round!

10th Annual Stroller Hikes Camping Trip at Bravo Ranch in Soquel


It’s coming!  It’s time to start planning for the annual camping tripIMG_1911. The trip will be from Friday, July 29th to Sunday, July 31st.  Families can stay one or two nights – just let us know which is your preference when you pay for your reservation.  Families need to bring their own tents, sleeping supplies, and personal supplies.  This private ranch is wonderfully family friendly, with a creek to play in, farm animals, a garden, a playground, crafts, and more!

 The Bravo Ranch Camping Trip is Stroller Hikes’ annual fundraiser.  In the past we have priced the donation per family, but we are shifting this year to a per-person amount.

Ages two and under = FREE

Ages 3 to 5 = $7 per night

Everyone else = $9 per night


During the trip, each family is required to:

Bring some food and/or supplies (these are assigned)

Complete camp-related tasks (e.g. washing dishes)

This is a very well organized trip that is more luxury camping than roughing it (we even have showers and a toilet). The trip will likely sell out before the Spring, so don’t wait to reserve.  Donations will not be reimbursed if families cancel. Donations will be reimbursed if we sell out before your donation is submitted.  You can reserve by paying admin@strollerhikes.com through PayPal or by mailing a check to Stroller Hikes, c/o Rebecca Taylor, 1675 Faraday Ct San Jose, CA 95124-4701.  When you donate, please indicate:

When your family will attend (e.g. Friday to Sunday)

If you have food limitations (we have 2 communal meals/day)

The names of the people in your family

The ages of your children
