**ANT Day Camp is not a horseback riding camp – while there is some riding involved, it is only a small part of what we do. If your child is specifically interested in riding, we recommend Lang’s Pony Farm.

In addition, Summer Day Camps are different from our therapeutic programming. If your youth is particularly struggling we may suggest enrolling in one of our Equine-Assisted Learning or Equine-Assisted Psychotherapy groups instead.


Our financial aid options are limited this year due to lack of donations. Please contact Katie at program@animalsasnaturaltherapy.org to see if scholarships are available (proof of income required) or to discuss a payment plan that works for your family!
