**Registration for camps closes 24 hours prior to the camp date.

In mini camp, campers participate in the full array of farm life activities, with time to play and explore our small animals; guinea pigs, chickens, rabbits, and turkeys, explore the woods and ziplines, do fun crafts, and learn about the garden. 


Everyone has the option to ride a horse. Our horse riding is great for beginners and experienced riders. The foundation of our riding program is called the CRAFTS of Partnership: Communication, Respect, Acknowledgement, Friendship, Trust & Setting Good Boundaries. Your child has the option of Horse Immersion to spend First and Second class doing horse-related activities, including extra ride time.


Our animals are always at work empowering the children to have higher self-confidence and to get beyond the natural fears that come up in learning something new and in being outdoors in Nature and around animals.


Mini Camps are open for Kindergarteners through 8th grade.  Junior Mentors (application and approval process required) are also welcomed and may sign up on our JM signup page!

*Please note that to sign up for Horse Immersion Camp your camper must be able to ride their horse independently at a trot with other horses and be at least 8 years old (unless approved by the instructor.)
