Stowe Farm  Camps 

Stowe Farm Summer Camps!
Our Summer Horsemanship K-9 Kids Camps offer a variety of exciting and enriching experiences for both boys and girls. Here at Stowe Farm we have two specialty camps. While the Horsemanship camp is well-known among our horse loving friends, our K-9 camp provides no less an adventure. Stowe Farm's Kids K-9 camp allows your child to bring their dog with them. Because so many kids love dogs, we decided to introduce the first Kids & K-9 camp. Whether you choose Horsemanship or K-9 it will result in your child learning life-long team building and social skill.  As well as gaining confidence and independence, which is important as they work together toward a common goal.

Most importantly, they are sure to make special memories and friendships that will last a lifetime!

Kids & K-9
Handlers Ages 11 & up

Stowe Farm's Kids & K-9 camp is directed by our Certified Canine Training Specialist! We believe that children should be motivated to train, yet also be willing to learn from the animals. This program is not just about training your pet, it's a wonderful way for your child to bond with their worlds best friend. Not only will they learn how to train and properly take care of their friend, they will also gain knowledge and understanding of what it means to be a responsible pet handler. Therefore, our program touches on many aspects of their pets’ life. Overall, both children and canine will receive lots of exercise. When kids take their 4-legged friend to camp, they can expect a day of laughing, learning and bonding.

Children and Pets will learn:
·    Agility exercises- in our agility course. Great exercise for both of them.
·    Obedience training- greeting others, good manners, basic commands and “place”
·    Proper grooming, bathing, brushing
·    First aid and awareness of dangerous foods
·    Different Breeds and how they interact- types, lifestyles, temperaments

Horsemanship Camp
Ages 7 & up
Stowe Farm offers an inclusive horse riding experience. Our trained and licensed staff always provides an exciting , comfortable learning environment for your children.

Horseback riding is an experience that instills a powerful connection between one of nature's most majestic animals and its human companion.

Horsemanship camp is created for either the novice rider or more advanced equestrians. First-time horse riders will learn how to properly handle a horse as they prepare to ride. Therefore, gaining confidence in themselves, while building a trusting relationship with  horses. The more experienced rider can adventure out on our woodland trails as well as the jump courses. Campers will learn about horses and how to take care of them. This includes; feeding, cleaning , bathing  along with brushing before and after riding.

Mornings consist of ground handling, grooming, saddling, positive direction control and, of course, riding. Afternoons will include team building games and challenging activities like our rock climbing wall or mechanical bull riding. To round out the day we find that most kids love a little quiet time spent playing with the ponies or soft furry bunnies..

 Summer Horsemanship K-9 Kids Camp  provides a safe, educational and fun experience on the farm.
Your child will leave here excited for next summer’s adventure.
