Skills for Life Taught by a Horse: Day Camp

For Children ages 9 to 14 Beginner rider friendly
Day Camps Weeks of July 29th and August 26th 2019

Science has proven that this curriculum, where horses are the teachers, can help improve the lives of children and at-risk youth! If you want your child to have a ton of fun plus learn life skills that will help them improve communication skills with family and teachers, integrate social circles, conquer anxiety and fears, improve focus, and develop empathy, this program is for you! This camp includes RIDING plus the scientifically proven life skills ciriculum done via groundwork obstacle courses with horses.

Program Objectives:

  1. Starting the Journey
    Objective - Building Relationships and Intentions (different personalities).
    What are our intentions? How do we build relationships with horses and with people? Are our thoughts and words important?
  2. Circuit Training
    Objective - Skill Development
    What skills does it take to work with the horse and with the people. What do we need to be aware of to work with our horses? If that approach works with horses, would it work with people? How can we be a leader to our horse and ourselves?
  3. Did I Hear You?
    Objective - Articulating and Interpreting Thoughts
    Are we really listening and hearing what someone else is saying to us; what makes a good listener; how do people feel when someone is really listening?Power Within
  4. Objective – Building Confidence
    What is self-esteem? Where do you get self-esteem? What does self-esteem look like? Can you see it in other people, and what do other people look like who have self esteem?
  5. Silent Communication
    Objective - Body Language
    How do we speak without using our voice? How do we speak with our eyes? Can we still be clear without using our voice? Is it important to be strong with our body language?
  6. Communication Rocks
    Objective – Active Listening and Articulation
    Are we really listening to what others have to say? We need to ask for clarification if we do not understand. We must not anticipate or assume. Communication is key and we must work on it everyday (school, work, home, and life).
  7. Equine Charades
    Objective - Listening through Body Language (learning to visually see what horses and people are saying without speaking).
    This exercise helps the participants develop observation skills. Watching the big picture. How are we really saying things? We verbalize one thing but our body language says another
  8. It’s All About the Boundaries Objective - Recognizing Boundaries Respecting boundaries and what does that mean? And why do boundaries keep us safe?
