When we receive your registration, we will contact you to arrange a time for the assessment.

​Each of our retreats offer skills to offer your child personal growth and instill self-confidence while learning horsemanship or about nature.  We set up teams during camp, so all can make new friends and learn about team-building.  Our Horse Retreats are a terrific way to get your child into horseback riding at a savings over typical private lessons.  Weather pending, campers will ride at least once a day, sometimes twice daily.  Arts & Crafts and other activities fill the days around horses.  A yummy (peanut free) lunch and snack is included each day.   Our Wild & Unplugged Day Camp does not involve horses.  Hours are 10:00am - 3:00pm each day, Monday through Wednesday. 

$49 Camps are FULL for 2022, check back next year!:

Thanks to our Youth Advisory Council grants, (and due to rising food & gas prices), we are offering our $250 camps for $49 each, (limit one camp per child)!! If your child resides in Alcona, Alpena, Iosco, Ogemaw or Oscoda counties, they are eligible for this grant! A variety of activities are planned over the 3-day camp. We only have 5 camps this Summer beginning July 11th. Camps limited to 10 participants each. FIFTY LUCKY KIDS WILL BENEFIT! We are also excited to welcome adopted foster children using the PARC subsidy for camps. Check with your case worker to participate in this subsidy. HURRY!! These camp openings will GO FAST!!
