August at Rancho La Puerta


Set your intention toward creativity and engage your imagination while you play with us in August. For a day of laughter and memories, it’s just a hop, skip, and a jump from our art studio to the pool and gyms. Then, in the gentle stillness of the evening, when the sun has dropped behind the hills, enjoy the calm as the day exhales and gives way to the magnificent blues of twilight. It’s been a day of play. But now is the time for stillness and feeling the gentle breeze. Be still with us in August.

July 29 -August 3
