Day Camp helps 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 horse, small animals, 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 feelings 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.
