Girls, outdoor fun isn’t just for boys! This day is for you. Come to Summersend and spend the day exploring the trails, building shelters, working with the horses and learning some skills along the way. We will be integrating nature play, outdoor education and activities in Self Awareness, Mindfulness, Feeling Emotions, Self Regulation and Relaxation. Participants will gain self confidence through activities with the horses and a sense of belonging as they participate in teamwork activities.

Anxiety and worry are on the rise in children today. This rise has lead to decreased focus, hyperactivity, sleep disturbances as well as attachment and other behavior issues. This program focuses on anxiety awareness among other things. Participants will work with the herd members and other participants to develop a clearer understanding of anxiety, and how to cope when it feels like it is taking over.

No equine experience is needed to participate in this program.

Now combined with the July Courage to be Me program. 


We have a lot of fun at these wellness camps. Participants are guided through a variety of activities with the herd learning about personal safety, self awareness, boundary setting, empathy development, relationship building, and leadership skills among other applicable life skills. Campers also learn basic horse care, safety and horsemanship. They receive a daily riding lesson that focuses on balance and control – these lessons are tailored for all levels of rider. We also have daily crafts, nature hikes, picnics and many other fun filled activities. Participants leave with higher levels of self-confidence, self-awareness and self-regulation.

Mornings will be spent developing leadership skills through group interactions, equine learning activities and games. The afternoons will be spent practicing leadership skills through horsemanship and riding lessons.

CHA Certified Instructor—Rachael Salustro will be joining us to instruct participants in effective horsemanship and riding. Horsemanship is focused on using clear leadership and communication between the horse and the handler. This will give participants a safe, non-judgmental place to test out their newly acquired leadership skills. The horses act as a mirror and give immediate feedback to the participant on if he or she is communicating effectively.

These are beginner friendly camps, and all lesson horses are provided.

Come and join the Fun!
