The Farmhouse School Summer Equine and Enrichment Day Camp is open to all children. Many of our students enter the summer camp program without any horse experience. Those that are experienced riders attend an advanced horsemanship clinic, separate from the day camp. We have found our summer program to be extremely successful with the inexperienced riders, as we are able to have a fresh training start with the children and easily shape the nature of their horseback riding experience. Some children prefer not to ride, but rather be around the horses, barn, the other kids and activities. IInvited instructors include Mr. Bruce Matthews and Linda Ward.
Camp is on a weekly basis from the end of school Monday through Friday, and also in school breaks.
