Camarillo Ranch House plans more family-friendly events
Ventura County Star | 4/17/2013

The Camarillo Ranch Foundation plans to add two events to its lineup of weddings, galas and other special happenings to boost attendance by families and children.

The foundation wants to attract more young families with children through family activities that reflect the heritage of the Camarillo Ranch House, foundation Director Marsha Rea said Wednesday in an email to The Star.

The foundation puts on about 130 weddings and 148 events a year in the barn of the property at 201 Camarillo Ranch Road in Camarillo, according to officials. Many of the events, however, are attended mostly by adults.

The foundation will kick off its new fiscal year with a free “Summer Sunday” on July 21. Food, games, a family movie and other crafts and activities are expected.

The event is intended to reflect the large lawn celebrations that Adolfo Camarillo, for whom the city is named, once held at the property, said foundation board member Bruce Fuhrman.

An Easter event planned for next year will feature an egg hunt, a visit from the Easter Bunny and other activities for children.

The foundation will continue with its staple events throughout the season such as Adolfo’s Birthday Party in October and Christmas With Santa.

Each year, the foundation has opened its doors to second- and third-graders of the Pleasant Valley School District for tours of the property. Starting in September, the foundation plans to drop the $1-per-student fee that has been required for the tour, Fuhrman said. Students will continue to receive a free workbook about the ranch after their tour.

“We currently have a balanced budget, and we will not require any subsidies from the city in the future,” Fuhrman told Camarillo City Council members at a meeting last week.

Councilwoman Jan McDonald expressed enthusiasm about the foundation’s new approach.

“You just don’t know who you’re going to touch when you bring those kids out. ... It may not make you money, but it’s going to make you famous,” McDonald said.

Fuhrman said the foundation also is “solving their growing pains.” Minor renovations to the board’s office space are planned to accommodate staff and clients better.
