Ventura Wild is totally dependent on the high level of inspiration and dedication in our staff. With a 4:1 ratio children to adult and a group size of 8-12 children, visiting swimming holes and other wild locations with a variety of hazards, group dynamics and lofty goals, the staff are the cornerstone of achieving our mission with each child and family.
