Cow Camp functions as the heart of the community’s ranching operations and is home to the Vaqueros and their families, and a protected place for horse pastures, row crops, the tack room and large corrals. Cow Camp is the place for ranch hands to gather at dawn for the day’s assignments and then return at dusk to review the day’s accomplishments and is open for special RanchLife resident events and activities.
Each August, thousands travel to The Rancho Mission Viejo Rodeo to experience the excitement of bareback riding, saddle bronc riding, steer wrestling, tie down roping, team roping and bull riding at one of the richest two-day rodeos in the nation, with a purse totaling over $200,000! The funds raised help honor the old cowboy tradition of “passing the hat” in support of a family in need.
