Summer Youth Camp

By popular request, camp runs for a half day from 9:30 am to 12:30 pm to allow for other non-horsey activities. To get a real flavor of what our program is about, please visit us on Facebook or Instagram.

We will be offering both one- and two-week Horse Camp sessions that will incorporate mounted horse games, horse management lessons, and crafts. And everyone will be introduced to the techniques of Horse Whispering. Our program is particularly unusual as we have a staff ratio of one staff to two campers and only take 8 campers per session!

Camp

Although certainly not mandatory, we encourage all campers to join our US Pony Club Center, and become internationally accredited in riding and horse management. Persons young (at least 5) and old may join our Pony Club Center program which teaches "sportsmanship, stewardship, and leadership through horsemanship." For more information, visit our Pony Club page, go to ponyclub.org, or call the Farm at (203) 938-3760.

There ARE some differences this year, due to Covid-19 considerations. First, to make certain all parents and riders are well acquainted with our mandatory Covid-19 protocols, we are requiring that each camper take our private 5-lesson introductory package, before the start of camp. And, in addition to proper riding clothes, all campers must have a grooming box, and their own saddle pads, lead rope, and leg wraps. We are also limiting campers to 7 years old and older.
