SUMMER HORSE CAMP: All volunteers assist in horse and camp activities. Our camp is organized by trained riding instructors/therapists and is focused on horsemanship skills. We are en equine-assisted therapy barn, so our camps are inclusive.

Camp Volunteers must be at least 15 years of age but we certainly welcome adult volunteers as well. We prefer that you have some horse experience. Spots are limited, so sign up ASAP. Ideally, Camp Volunteers commit to at least one full week so there is consistency with the campers. However, we are flexible with schedules! Talk to us!

Camps are scheduled as follows:

Mon-Fri from 9:00am to 1:00pm June 3-7 June 17-21
