Horseplay Camp

Horseplay camp is an all abilities summer program for children and teens with and without special needs. The camp incorporates a variety of mounted and unmounted equine activities such as riding, driving, horse handling, grooming, stable chores and barn management. All activities emphasize self-development and team building. Students participate in herd observation and study to develop communication, safety, and horsemanship skills. Additional activities include music, movement, drama, arts and crafts. Each camper leaves their unique “hoof print” on the farm, such as additions to the sensory trail, games for other campers, or signage for our trail system. We emphasize responsible stewardship practices for our Earth, teaching and practicing ways in which to respect, preserve and protect our natural environment.

*This summer we are pleased to be offering an adapted Horseplay Camp Program. Due to COVID-19 guidelines and protocols, we are limiting each session to a maximum of four campers and have shortened the camp day to 9AM-12PM. While we may be unable to accomplish all of the usual activities listed above, we are committed to providing our campers with as many and exciting and horse-filled activities as we are able to safely accomplish.*

If you are interested in signing up for Horseplay Camp, please fill out and submit our Horseplay Camp Application available here. Once your application is received, you will get a follow-up email or phone call confirming the week(s) that your camper is signed up for. We require a $100 deposit with or shortly following the application in order to hold your child's space in camp. The remainder of the camp fee is due by the first day of camp. Please contact us with any additional questions.
