Horse Camp

Horse Camp

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.

$300 Session Fee

Teen Camp, 07/16 – 07/25/2020

Teen Camp, 07/16 – 07/25/2020

Our summertime teen session is the crown jewel of Enchanted Hills Camp, where the most dynamic and charged bonds occur. Teens get to ride horses, learn woodworking, take riflery, and perform. What’s particularly special about teen session is how most of the Counselors and CITs are blind or visually impaired themselves, and many have attended camp as young teens. Here teens in grades 9 through 12 will experience all the offered youth camp activities and special events, including the STEM track which is built into this year’s teen timeline. Additionally, campers will participate in activities geared toward building leadership abilities and setting goals for the future. If you/your child attended this, or any EHC session during summer 2019, please check your email for a message about a new registration process for returning campers.
