The Camphill School is a licensed and approved private school that offers individualized education and therapy in an extended family setting for children with intellectual and developmental disabilities. We offer residential and day academic and prevocational programs, as well as therapeutic care, for children in kindergarten through grade twelve.
Horse riding is an equine-assisted activity for the purpose of contributing positively to the cognitive, physical, emotional and social well-being of individuals with special needs and provides benefits in the areas of health, education, sport and recreation & leisure.
We are seeking volunteers with experience with horses to assist with riding and exercising the students on the horses. It is a fun, rewarding activity.
Please note, the assistant will not be riding and there are no sessions in inclement weather or on extremely cold winter days.

About The Camphill School

Mission Statement

The Camphill School’s mission is to create wholeness for children and youth with developmental disabilities through education, extended family living, and therapy so that they may be better understood, they may more fully unfold their potential, and they may meaningfully participate in life.

Description

Serving children with intellectual and developmental disabilities, The Camphill School is a licensed and approved private school that offers individualized education and therapy in an extended family setting. We offer residential and day academic and prevocational programs, as well as therapeutic care, for children in kindergarten through grade twelve. We also offer a Transition Program for young people ages eighteen to twenty-one. Our educational and vocational programs focus on bringing the arts and academics to life, weaving hands-on activities with skill building.

The Camphill ideal is to engage all the members of each community in meeting their own needs, as well as those of the community at large, to whatever extent their abilities allow. With heavy emphasis on experiential learning, the students learn academics in engaging ways. They learn how to play the piano, recorder, or hand bells; they stage concerts, dramatic performances, and elaborate puppet shows. They help with costumes and construct sets. Students here partake in woodworking, weaving, pottery, sewing, and gardening. The student run Beaver Farm produces all the beef, pork, chicken, and eggs needed by The Camphill School. They also learn food processing and cater meals with the produce they grow.
