COME JOIN US FOR A WEEK OF UNFORGETTABLE FUN! Every summer, Animals as Natural Therapy offers a variety of Summer Day Camps from June through August for kids ages 6-16 (Teen Camp offered for ages 13-18). While our camps are open to all kids, priority goes to youth referred by family or counselors for confidence-building and improving peer relationships.

Day Camp will help develop:

Respect and Gratitude:

While honoring each person’s and creature’s need for physical and emotional safety, youth create a relationship of mutual respect with their thousand pound horse and with other camp participants.

Communication and Teamwork:

Clear and honest communication is key to teamwork between all beings. Conflicts are prevented or dealt with as one learns to identify their feeling and then what they need, and then respectfully ask for this from others.

Trust:

Caring staff and gentle animals nurture youth, in turn youth learn to nurture. As a result, they learn who to trust and how to be worthy of another’s trust. This experience facilitates the creation of healthy relationships.

Dates and information are available: please check out our brochure!
