More Information about our camps: Bellwether Farm offers educational and fun summer opportunities for kids of all ages. Our camp programs teach riding and horsemanship – and so much more! Learning horse skills promotes confidence, teamwork, responsibility and leadership in a fun and rewarding environment. We offer riding programs with all sessions designed for maximum hands-on experience. Our program enrollment per camp is kept small (6-8 campers) so we may tailor each camper’s activities to their comfort level. If your child is new to horses (little or no actual contact) we strongly recommend, but do not require, a ground lesson session prior to camp. This will help to provide a confidence-building introduction if needed.
You can attend as many sessions as you want! Discounts are available for those signing up for more than one session. Military, 2nd sibling, 4-H members and buddy discounts are also available.
Please call or e-mail us for additional information. Our camps fill very quickly, so to avoid disappointment, contact us as soon as possible to be included in the fun! **Waiting List is available for any full sessions
