Summer of fun!

 

 

(Our Summer Camp is full for 2022. We are collecting names for a waiting list at this time.)

Summer Camp at Fieldstone Farm is an exceptional experience where campers discover their unique talents in week-long day camps. Camp staff, instructors, and counselors are specially-trained to provide a supporting, fun, and enriching camp day for children with disabilities.

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 a weekly theme. Riders will get a little dirty, play inside and out, and create lasting memories. All camps are $295 per week, with the exception of the music camp which is $325. Read on to find the weekly themes that interest your camper.

Camp Imagination – June 6-10 
Unicorns, dragons, and fairies, oh my! A week of fairytale fun that focuses on horses and their magical friends in books, movies, and songs. Campers will even create an edible unicorn!

A Horse of My Own – June 13-17
Campers will have their own horse buddy for the week. Not only will they get to know this horse but they will learn about the horse’s other friends in their herd and how horses socialize. Each camper will also design a horse of their very own out of many different mediums, including pool noodles, corks, cookies, and more!

All About Horses – June 20-24
What do horses eat? Why do they have different jobs? How do they move? This camp is perfect for the child with lots of questions! Campers will learn about horse care, different breeds, how our barn works, and more. This week is best suited for campers with enough attention span and interest to manage complex activities.

Music to Our Ears – June 27-July 1
Does your child love music? Horses love music too. Campers will create and experience the harmony of riding and music in this unique partnership with daily involvement from a board-certified music therapist. Music will be included throughout the day including riding classes and activities.

Horse Play – July 11-15
Messy fun and games for our active campers. Make playdough, paint with fingers and toes, and even use our horses as a canvas! We will also play water games, weather permitting. This camp is geared towards campers who like a wide variety of activities.

Happy Trails – July 18-22
Does your child love to get moving and be outside? This week is all about the ultimate summer camp experience! We will have picnic lunches, tie dye t-shirts, sing camp songs, and more! One classic feature of a horse summer camp is trail rides. This week will be full of trail rides, obstacle courses on horseback, and other activities to bring out the fun of camp.

Mindful Moments – July 25-29
Enjoy a week of calm connection with our horses. Through auditory (music therapy with our board-certified music therapist), olfactory (scent), and tactile (hands-on barn) stimulation, campers will gain skills to relax and self-regulate. With their horse partners, campers will engage in mindful activities like yoga, meditation and riding.

Make an Impression – August 1-5
Does your child love to create? Arts and crafts, painting horses, and more! Campers will get their hands dirty by building, painting, and creating their own masterpieces with many different mediums. This week is best suited for campers with enough attention span and interest to manage complex activities.

  • Are 6-16 years old at the time of their camp
  • Cooperate in a group setting
  • Independently eat and toilet

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.
