Messy fun and games for our active campers. Make playdough, paint with fingers and toes, and even use our horses as a canvas! We will also play water games, weather permitting. This camp is geared towards campers who like a wide variety of activities.

Happy Trails (July 20-24, $295)
Does your child love to get moving and be outside? Trail riding is a great way to relax and enjoy horses in new environments.
