This camp is for visually impaired horseback riders between the ages of 16 and 24 years old, with no secondary disabilities. Moreso than just riders, though, this is for those teens and young adults who are thinking of caring for horses, owning them or possibly entering into a career involving horses, but perhaps have been unsure how their eyesight might affect this decision (hint: it’s entirely possible!). That said, horse camp is geared toward those with a bit of riding experience. Experience caring for horses is not required. Campers must have independent mobility skills to participate. This program is run by Diane Starin, a Living Skills Instructor at the Society for the Blind in Sacramento, California.
This fairly new and exciting science program at Enchanted Hills has an overarching goal of exposing students from the ages of 11-14 who are blind and visually impaired to Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math (STEAM). Students will take part in hands-on, accessible, and innovative activities; which includes computing, robotics, biology, and more. Students will also take home some pretty cool give-a-ways.
$60 Session Fee (free for those attending the youth session)
