ANT Day Camp helps develop:

Social & Emotional Learning
Leadership
Respect and Gratitude
Communication & 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. If your child is specifically interested in riding, we recommend Lang’s Pony Farm.

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.

Registration

Registration is first-come, first-served, and is limited to one week per child/family.

  • A $25 non-refundable application fee is due with your completed paperwork, and can be paid by credit card over the phone or with check or cash (this fee will be applied towards the total price of the camp)
  • Your child’s space is not confirmed until completed registration AND payment are received. The Program Coordinator will confirm your child’s space once all materials have been received.

Scholarships

Financial ability should never be a barrier to a positive, enriching summer experience! Thanks to community donations, we are able to offer partial scholarships based on family need (proof of income is required).

Cancellations & Refunds

We understand that life happens regardless of best-laid plans. However, summer camps are planned 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.*

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