Project Description

Animals as Natural Therapy offers summer camp for youth ages 5-18. Get to know our horses, create fun art projects, play with fun farm animals, meet new friends, develop valuable life skills, and more!

Day Camp helps develop:
  • Social & Emotional Learning
  • Leadership
  • Respect and Gratitude
  • Communication and Teamwork
  • Trust

Please note: ANT Day Camp is not a horseback riding camp – while there is some riding involved, we can suggest a number of other great programs in Whatcom County if your child is specifically interested in riding.

Cancellations and Refunds

We understand that life happens regardless of best laid plans. However, summer camps are put into action based on enrollment expectations. Refund amounts are based on how far in advance your cancellation is made. *Specific refund requests may be made due to family or medical emergency, and will be evaluated on a case-by-case basis.*

  • 50% refund (excluding $25 application fee) before June 15, 2020
  • No refunds after June 15, 2020

Non-refunded summer camp payments will be applied towards scholarships for youth in need.
