Summer of fun!

Summer is a time to explore new things, have fun and make friends. Summer Camp at Fieldstone Farm is an exceptional experience where campers discover their unique talents in week-long day camps throughout the summer. Instructors are specially trained to bring out the best in children and young adults with special needs.

Camp Themes
In addition to special programming based on the week’s theme, campers will ride every day, groom and tack up their horses, clean their tack, learn about horses, work a little, get a little dirty, play and create horse-themed remembrances. Below are the themes and dates for 2018.
