Summer Day Camp

Come join us for a week of unforgettable fun!

Animals as Natural Therapy offers summer camp for youth ages 6-18. 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, it is only a part of what we do at camp. We can suggest a number of other great programs in Whatcom County if your child is specifically interested in riding.

In addition, Summer Day Camps are different from our normal therapeutic programming. To ensure your child will have a successful camp experience, we may contact you for more information. If your youth is particularly struggling, we may suggest enrolling in our after-school support groups instead.
