  • Day camps include horses, arts and crafts, games, and swimming. We also have horse camp options!

We provide an encouraging atmosphere where children will grow in group relationships, courtesy, good manners and respect as well as creative exploration.  


   Our Unique Camps: 

Arts and crafts with all materials provided

Horse Rides and Swimming (weather permitting)

Limited Enrollment Sessions with 4 children per Staff

2018 Camp Week with Split Day

Choose to come for only the morning, 
only the afternoon, or all day. $175 for morning or afternoon session, or $210 adding swim time at lunch, or $385 for full day for the week.

July 30 - Aug 3

 Creativity Art Camp

9:30 am to 12:30 pm

Two options:

We have some great supplies to create and take home your own puppet theater. So we will have one staff for those who choose to make puppets and their own puppet theater. Those doing puppetry will put on a puppet show during lunch time on Friday. Please be sure to state this option as your choice when you register.


Another staff will lead projects with creative, unusual materials such as eco art with natural materials, collages with a variety of materials, foil embossing, paper weaving, 3-dimensional assemblages and more.   


Camp Creativity is a looser format with more breaks and games than the afternoon focused art session. Plus the morning includes a daily horse ride. There are plenty of alternate activities for those not interested in the daily horse ride :)

Suggested ages 5-12

NOTE: Ages are suggestions.  If you have a young child that focuses well, or an older child that does well around young children, they may fit in, especially if accompanying a sibling. Call to discuss suitability.

 Afternoon Horse Ride 

Afternoon students can schedule to come early during Lunch/Swim time for a horse ride. Call for price and arrangements.

Focused Art Camp

1:30 pm to 4:30 pm

Each day includes explorations into famous artists and museum artworks with teacher directed lessons in topics such as drawing, painting and collage/mixed media. Break time includes playing art related games.  A portfolio of finished work will be taken home at the end of the week.

This session is great for the child that really wants to improve their art or the child that just loves being involved in art.

Children will be grouped by age and ability for appropriate art lessons.  

Suggested ages 8-14
