Our aim at Northland Farm’s summer camp is to provide children with an opportunity to experience the joys of horseback riding. Campers will learn about and develop their abilities in the techniques of the English Hunt Seat style of riding. Furthermore, our well-trained staff will introduce the campers to the challenges, responsibilities, and rewards of caring for the horses.
In addition to riding, any day camper can also participate in a range of other activities, from arts and crafts to sports and hikes. For the nature lovers among our summer campers, we offer the opportunity to learn how to identify plants, bugs, and animal tracks. (Deer, red-tailed fox, muskrat, and raccoon tracks can often be found on the premises.) Or, while they’re fishing, campers can also learn how to dig bait, tie knots, and cast and release.
For youth interested in arts and crafts, a guest artist will explore various media with them, including paint, clay, and collages of items collected during nature hikes. We also offer creative storytelling, enthusiastic sing-alongs, and guest lecturers who will share insights into arts and conservation topics with the children.
