Riptide Stables is happy to open our gates to summer fun with our weekly day camp. Our camp is open to kids aged 5-15 with kids divided into two groups: Our Fun Foals group is aged 5-9 and our Playful Pony group is aged 10-15. Any age is welcome any day! We do break into smaller groups for some activities and everyone joins together for others. There are no more than 6 kids with one of our great counselors at any time.
Riptide Rascal Summer Camp is named after one of our adorable miniature donkeys who is always a favorite with the kids.
Each week is filled with learning about and participating in life on a farm, interacting with the 7 miniature donkeys, 3 horses, and 2 ponies, learning all about the animals and how to care for them, grooming, feeding, and bathing the animals (and of course having fun with water at the same time), creating new friendships, with furry critters and other kids, crafts, pony rides and enjoying the outdoors.
We typically start each day with feeding the animals and deciding who needs attention, grooming or maybe to be decorated with our fun colorful paint soap and then rinsed off for a fun way to give a critter a bath. Everyone gets groomed.
Depending on the weather we may saddle up Nemo or Misty to teach our group how to “tack up” and then go for hand-led rides, go on a nature walk on our farm’s nature trail, or decide on a craft to do inside or outside. We will settle for lunch (kids bring their own packed lunches). We have a refrigerator and water and juice boxes available. After lunch a few barn chores and more time with the animals.
