Description of Camp:
This will be your performing horse lover's dream camp! Whether their talents lie in creating, performing, producing, or composing, we'll mock up our storyboards and choose a performance that everyone can collaborate on for the final performance! Shall we have a scavenger hunt for items we can make costumes and props with? Absolutely! And what kind of Horse Play would this be without horses?! Perhaps we'll get ourselves into a big hot mess! But the end result is laughter, play, creativity, community...and horses! That's what it's all about folks! Camp week includes trail riding, hiking, crafts, true horse-play, art, relays, water games, and Yes! Even Barn Chores! Every moment is a learning opportunity and though the camp has planned activities, we'll be teaching in a dynamic environment where the learning is organic because the learning takes place through discovery and play! We have day-camp visitors who will join us during the week, allowing our Happy Campers to change their role from students to teachers, experiencing what it is like to show others what they have just learned in an environment where helping others is interactive and fun to do!
Each day will include interaction with the horses to include feeding, riding, tacking, groundwork, saddle work, free play; nature related lessons regarding health, nutrition, and care of horses; arts and crafts that are theme related to the camp; games to include relays, water play, board games, and field play; round pen time to include introductions and icebreakers, announcements, group interactions, ending accolades, snack time and meal times.
Though there will be some riding, this is not a horse-back riding camp, so the focus is not about riding. No riding experience is necessary as all riding experiences will be accompanied by one-on-one helpers.
*All Campers will be able to take home their creative projects!
**Please note adult supervision will be limited after camp ends, so please arrive a few minutes before class is over to pick up your happy Helper! Cost will be $1.00 per minute after 3:10 pm.
