SAFETY IS ALWAYS THE FOCUS
Older campers mentor the young ones in a Counselor In Training program. All are under the watchful eye of Fox Heath’s qualified instructors and counselors. There is 1 counselor for approximately 6 campers.
Campers learn the correct way to handle and interact with horses. With Daily Mounted Instruction, campers become confident in the ring and on the trail. The Thursday Horse Shows help to build self-esteem. Horse related Arts and Crafts stimulate creativity. Project Booklets reinforce what’s being taught. Swimming, horseless horse shows, and games provide Recreational Activities.
A PROGRESSIVE CAMP PROGRAM
Campers are divided into groups based on their age and experience. Campers move up in riding groups as they improve and gain confidence. Topics of discussion are also geared towards each group’s level of experience. For example, beginners would learn about grooming and tacking up, while the C.I.T.s might be taught how to bandage a horse’s leg or to braid a mane. Each session offers different demonstrations and topics of interest, so repeat campers always have something new to look forward to.
Camp begins in June and runs for 4 consecutive 2 week sessions ending in the middle of August. The camp day begins at 9:00 a.m. and ends at 3:00 p.m., Monday through Friday. Extended hours are available.
- 1st Session: June 19 - June 30
- 2nd Session: July 3 - July 14
- 3rd Session: July 17 - July 28
- 4th Session: July 31 - August 11
