Our youth leadership programs are far more than just a horse camp.
Each child will be assigned their very ‘own’ horse for the duration. They will be responsible for feeding, grooming, and yup, even the stall cleaning of their horse. The riding part of our program focuses on building confidence, developing leadership and practicing respect for animals and each other. They will learn to handle their horse both from the ground and in the saddle. All levels of riding can be accommodated. Horses are also used for equine assisted growth and learning. These are unique experiences where the kids interact with the horses and each other with the goal of developing positive life skills such as communication, conflict resolution, and teamwork. All of our camps are sleep away camps, supervised 24/7. The away-from-home experience of staying in a bunkhouse with a bunch of their peers contributes to self-esteem, self-confidence, and a whole bunch of giggly memories. Evenings always involve the roasting of marshmallows and age-appropriate games that promote group cohesion, compassion, and positive talk. Our camp counselors are experienced, college-aged, and ideal mentors and role models. The camps’ riding and equine assisted growth and learning activities are always facilitated by Executive Director Marybeth Wiefels.
Part of our mission statement is that no child will ever be turned away from camp. Call us and we will help you make it happen
