Horseback Camps & Vacations
EXPERIENCING NATURE with HORSE
…..where Hearts, Horses and Kids Connect
This program will help your child:
- learn communication through the language of horse and the rhythm of nature
- learn about horses and connection with horsemanship skills
- learn leadership with horse as their partner as they ride the trails
Wilderness camp experience empowers youth in social-relatedness, positive feelings and a stronger sense of connection with others. Nature improves children’s creativity, school marks, environmental awareness and physical fitness. Horses teach empowerment, life-coping skills and help youth build confidence by learning about horse care, groundwork and riding.
Four Point Outfitters combine education and fun to enable the restorative powers of both nature and horses, to unlock and realize children’s potential.
In today’s busy urban focused life style, there is a deficit in children and the time they are able to spend in nature.
"The most effective kind of education is that a child should play amongst lovely things" – Plato (Greek philosopher)
Horses & Nature
Kids benefit from horses and nature. If you are ready to have your child empowered through one of our programs, then please call us today! We have several programs to make this more convenient for you. We have over 100 years of experience in Outfitting guests. We focus on safety and provide experienced trained facilitators, guides and horses.
- Horsemanship theory, safety & riding
- Outdoor cooking skills
- Campfire songs and stories
- Horse painting
The camps are all inclusive with the children being responsible for riding helmets, sleeping bags and personal belongings. To provide the ultimate nature experience, the camp provides a rustic outdoor setting. Tents to sleep in, outdoor shower and washroom facilities and plenty of healthy and nutritious prepared meals and snacks. Adult facilitators supervise the children at all times.
Awaken your child’s senses as they smell the sweet scent of mother earth, see and imagine images as the clouds gently move across the sky of blue and feel the rough bark of a climbing tree. These are the gifts of nature your child will benefit from as they join other children and partner with Horse for a fun filled camp experience.
