Maybe your child has not physically set foot in school for over a year and you are worried that they are behind. You know that this shutdown has robbed them of many crucial social and academic opportunities. As a result, your child may be struggling with increased anxiety, fear and loneliness. Your child may have not done as well academically or socially since schools shut down. And now they may feel scared and overwhelmed about going back or catching up. You may see more outbursts, fears, sleep problems and power struggles as a result. Trying to parent through this while you have had to stand in as teacher has been challenging and you worry they are behind. You are not alone!
This summer horse camp is designed to help your child get back on track and practice the skills they need not only to succeed academically but also to be kind, resilient and successful at home and in relationships. We give them fun and unique opportunities to practice relationship skills by working with our horses. Not only will your child learn about emotional and social skills, we integrate brain science so they can understand how their brain works and how that is vital to their ability to do well in life. Many of our parents have told us that they love how how we make the latest brain science fun and understandable for children of all ages.
As a parent you can feel confident that your child isn't just hearing about these skills but practicing them! Since horses don't lie they will know when they have succeeded. The children and teens we work have said they feel incredibly powerful when they are able to lead a strong and beautiful 1000 lb horse! You can also be confident that our program is based on research that shows that the ability to manage emotions and social situations is more vital to future success than IQ. These so called "soft skills" are becoming more rare and are highly sought after by employers and colleges. For those working or heading to college they will learn valuable work skills that will set them apart from their peers.
We are offering our Horsepower Summer Camp Intensive for a small number of children and teens. Each camp will only have a maximum of 8 children. Click below to register for the Camp!
The HorsePower Camp focuses on developing the skills of Responsibility, Respect, Relationship Skills, Empathy, Boundaries and Choices and Consequences. The best part is that these skills are not just "taught" but practiced with the horses! It is a fun and unforgettable way to learn valuable social and emotional skills necessary to succeed in life. Activities are all ground-based. No horse experience needed.
HorsePower Summer Day Camp will be held from 9:30am to 11:30 am Monday through Friday and is split by age groups.
