CAMP PROGRAMS 2021! 

Our day camps offer children the opportunity to grow and explore in the great outdoors.  Campers spend their days enjoying fresh air, physical fitness, imaginative play and, of course, hands-on experiential learning with animals and nature as our guides.

The animals, and our acres of fields, forest and stream, help us create an
environment that fosters curiosity and awareness; teamwork and communication; resilience; self confidence; problem-solving; compassion and respect for ourselves, each other and the world around us. 

In addition to a 'taste' of daily farm chores and our many animal activities, every camp includes plenty of games, experiments, tie dye t-shirts, arts and crafts, scavenger hunts, hiking, stories, and outdoor exploration. Activities include archery, zip line, parachute, pony hops, rock wall, mini ropes course, ninja lines, campfires, gardening, egg and spoon, sack races and so much more!  *Horse Camps include daily riding lessons.

EQUINE ASSISTED WELLNESS & PERSONAL DEVELOPMENT! 

Horses can play a powerful role in growth, healing and skills development.  They live in the present moment and are highly tuned into their surroundings. They fully use all of their senses, including their ability to read the inner state of others. Horses have the gift of intervening on an emotional and somatic (body) level which makes them excellent partners for helping us meet the challenges that lay before us.


Team Building - Enjoy a uniquely empowering team building day! We will take yourcommunication skills to new levels, build trust and unlock leadership abilities to create immediate and last change in you and your team. Emphasis will be on collaboration and cooperation through hands on tasks requiring a team effort. Our unique approach will help build character, improve communication and allow participants to connect on a deeper level. 

Mindful Leadership - Learn effective leadership, communication skills and how one's actions can create or reduce cooperation, engagement, and trust. Hands-on and classroom exercises will demonstrate active listening, non-verbal communication, creative thinking, team work and using appropriate authority to help participants recognize and demonstrate exemplary leadership qualities. Equine-assisted learning in this context allows participants to choose alternatives to generate better collaboration and align shared goals and outcomes. The success of any company relies heavily on its management team's ability to inspire and motivate others. By improving your leadership skills you will see: 
* improved communication
* increased productivity
* increased motivation levels
* increased creativity/innovation 
* increased levels of employee satisfaction and engagement
* decreased levels of absenteeism
* higher levels of e
mployee retention

 

Youth Leadership - In a world of technology and texting, we can lose sight of interpersonal skills and relationships. Our hands on youth programs are designed to build communication, leadership and teamwork skills as well as unlocking new found confidence and courage that will allow youth to not only connect with their peers, parents and teachers on a deeper level but to view their own strengths and abilities with greater clarity and pride. We can tailor our programs to meet your desired outcomes from half and full day workshops to weekly one-hour sessions.


Wellness - Equine-Assisted Wellness programs help people with making personal changes in their lives that they may not have been able to accomplish on their own. The process of interacting with horses involves developing or re-discovering one's own natural ability to heal, thrive and grow. The horses and the natural environment provide unparalleled opportunities for increased self awareness and self reflection and help participants to reconnect to positive resources, see problems in a new way and support the journey to new possibilities.
