Horsemanship

March Break Madness is designed to take full advantage of all things equine! This is a week long, full day program where children ages 6-13+ will be able to progress their knowledge of horse care, experience a variety of outdoor recreation activities and have invaluable social interaction with peers.

Ages = 6-13+ (older ages may be considered if they are developmentally younger and therefore would be appropriate for the activities)

Dates = March 14th-18th, 2022

Hours = 9:00-3:00pm

Cost = $300/week

All camp activities are formulated by our Recreation Therapist and then facilitated with the assistance of our counsellors. Each activity will have an incorporated goal and facilitative technique in order to guide individual and group experiences from a Therapeutic Recreation perspective. Activities are chosen to be adaptable to individual needs, promote creativity, exploring, teamwork and active living in an outdoor setting. Check out the many example activities listed below:
