Programs

Traditional Day Camps

Campers will participate in a week long variety of activities that will encourage them to explore and appreciate the outdoors in a biblically informed way. Programs can include a time of wilderness education, map reading/orienteering, games, gardening, fishing, archery, and horse riding/training. Riding classes incorporate patience, emotional control, and learning how to communicate with a horse without the use of force or intimidation. We teach respectful boundaries with horses; how to keep an animal out of your space while improving leadership and love. A period of Bible instruction and reflection is included to encourage the campers to enjoy a daily walk with Christ and appreciation of his word. A climbing wall, paddle boats, a planned zip-line and giant swing, or exploring our woods provide an outlet for excess energy in a non- harmful way. See schedule for Camp availability. Ages 8-16

Many facets of horse care are covered to include: barn and pasture maintenance, daily health checks, proper feeding and conditioning of horses, ground-work, riding and driving. Natural riding–using the entire body to steer, stop, and start a horse using an understanding of the horse’s mind to communicate in a way it understands. There will be demonstrations of different equestrian disciplines (reining, saddle seat, dressage, driving, ground manners). During break times, campers will have bible- based devotionals and a time to experience some of the other facilities at camp. See schedule for Camp availability. Ages 10-17
