January 30, 2021 — Weekly riding camp sessions start June 7 and run through August 6. Register early, sessions sell out!

Summer Camp at Fieldstone Farm is an exceptional experience where campers discover their unique talents in week-long themed day camps. Camp staff, instructors, and counselors are specially-trained to bring out the best in children with special needs. Camp runs Monday-Friday, from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. Each day campers will be assigned a horse to groom, tack and ride, as well as participate in a variety of activities tied to the week’s theme. Riders will get a little dirty, play inside and out, and create lasting memories.

Camp Details
As part of enrollment, Fieldstone Farm staff meets families through an on-site evaluation. This is an opportunity for potential campers to meet the horses and team; allowing our staff to understand your camper’s unique needs. Our camp experience is ideal for youth who:

• Are 6-16 years old at the time of their camp
• Cooperate in a group setting
• Independently eat and toilet
• Clearly express their needs
• Do not require mid-day administration of medication
• Weigh less than 180 lbs as measured on Fieldstone Farm’s scale

Health and Wellness
The health and safety of our campers is our top priority. All campers have individual work stations with their own supply kits for the day’s activities. All high touch surfaces throughout the facility are disinfected several times daily, and hand sanitizer is available. Everyone at Fieldstone Farm is required to wear a mask when in common areas and in the arena. There will be designated times and spaces for campers to take “mask breaks” throughout the day. Additional information regarding COVID protocols can be found on our website and is updated regularly.

Medical History
Along with the camp registration, we ask for a health and medical history. Please be thorough in completing our enrollment form as it helps us create a supportive experience for your camper. Fieldstone Farm reserves the right to request additional medical information and/or an evaluation by a medical professional prior to or during the course of summer camp. Our camp staff cannot administer mid-day medication.
