Reviews for Rattlebox Nature Center Ltd

Rating: 5 stars  

My daughter attended Rattlebox Nature Center this summer and absolutely loved it. This was the one camp she couldn't stop talking about all summer and she is delighted to be able to attend on an off day from school. Valerie was extremely kind and compassionate about the love and care of her animals and she treated my daughter like her own. I was also impressed with the lovely crafts that were completed. This camp truly exceeded my expectations.

Valerie and Rattlebox Nature Center are the simply the best. The environment is incredibly kids friendly and fosters individual growth with a hands on experience while being committed to safety. There is a healthy emphasis on learning about nature and our environment and the kids love all the animals. The stories they come home with are worthy of a time capsule.

Sincerely,
Long time client

Valerie and her staff were wonderful. They taught my 3 year granddaughter how to ride and take care of the horses.Valerie has created a loving and caring environment where all the kids feel part of something and want to take part.

I took two of my 8 year old nieces to Rattlebox a few weeks ago because I hadn't seen them in a while and wanted to do something special with them. I decided to take them to Rattlebox Nature Center - what a great time we all had! They were able to hold and pet guinea pigs, turtles, rabbits, birds and dogs. Then we went outside to see and feed the ponies - what treat! The girls were so excited when we were leaving because they received a $5 credit to use in the gift shop . . . lots of choices, and they left with great mementos of the day. They can't wait to go back to ride the ponies, and are even asking that their next birthday be held there. Val, the owner, is such a sweet person who is excellent with kids. All of the animals are rescues, saved from a not-so-good fate (we won't get into that). What great work she is doing, and what a great message to impart to today's youth. Thanks, Val!!

My 5-year-old attended a week of summer camp at Rattlebox and loved it! He had no prior experience around ponies, but discovered that he really likes riding. Valerie made him feel right at home, and he had a great time with the other campers.

We recently had a Pony Party at Rattlebox for our daughter's Birthday. It was the most wonderful party and lots of great memories were made. All of the guests were knocked out with how unique and fun the day was. So great to have the kids outside and enjoying an active, educational, and most importantly FUN day! Thanks Valerie!
