We usually visit multiple businesses or have professionals visit us to share their careers, pick up some of the sixty tons of hay that we'll need for the winter, participate in events with other agencies, and have people haul in horses that need work.
Most days, kids clean stalls and help with other jobs in the morning. Then we eat lunch together, and in the afternoon we bring the horses in for activities. Other kids help with projects, do gardening, or work on academics with tutors.
Currently, we are on the schedule for CEF's Five-Day Club, and have military recruiters and the county sheriff scheduled for career exploration.
We plan on holding the day camp June 30 to August 22, Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays, from 9 am to 4 pm. The last day of camp will be Saturday, August 23, and we hope to have a celebration from 3 pm to 4 pm. Participants, volunteers, and staff can invite friends, family, and visitors to help us celebrate.
People may enroll for as many weeks as they want as long as there is space, and there are no deadlines for enrollment. The cost is a $5/day/participant fee which can be reduced or waived by prior arrangement. New participants and their guardians should plan on attending a one-hour tour and orientation together prior to or at the beginning of the first day attended. Give us a call at 541-451-1243 to make arrangements.
We serve all ages of children to young adult. Children age five and under, or those with special needs, may need to be accompanied by their own attendant. Participants should dress in layers to be prepared for the chilly mornings and hot afternoons. Wear close-toed shoes, long pants, bring gloves if you have them. Bring a sack lunch that does not need to be refrigerated or reheated, and a water bottle.
The pictures below are from our day camp last year, and are just a small sample of the types of activities we usually do.
