This is an exciting addition to our camp program and is getting ready for its second year! Have you ever wondered how great it would be to be a camp counselor at His Barn?! Camp is a pretty big deal to us around here at the barn and we strive to provide the very best experience we can for our campers and their families. A lot of work goes into that and just like our brochure says - His Barn is more than just riding. Our young leadership program here in the lesson barn helps mold well rounded horse kids who can participate in every aspect of life here during camp season. This C.I.T. camp will help open doors for young people who have a heart to serve and be part of the program here as well even if they aren't in our regular program. Each summer we will take a very limited number of C.I.T. campers during a regular week of camp. Register early enough and that could be you! You will learn the ins and the outs of being a camp counselor here. You will shadow Jr. staff kids as well as the program owner/operator, Ms. Jill. You will work in the barn with the horses as well as in the house with the campers. A camp counselor at His Barn learns to do a little bit of everything so as a C.I.T. you will experience a little bit of everything. You'll play games, eat great lunches and snacks, and learn how to lead bible studies and crafts! You will not ride every day but you will get to ride the horses 2- 3 times during your week of camp as well as working in the barn doing chores and animal care. This is a serious step towards a rewarding goal of being a camp counselor so please consider it carefully. Parents please call with any questions! Upon completion of TWO FULL WEEKS OF CIT camp, the C.I.T. will then be eligible to be selected for volunteer Jr. Counselor positions!

...more than just riding...
Day camps at His Barn run a full day - 9:00 - 5:00. You are definitely getting your money's worth in hours alone! Our day consists of two hour riding lessons, both in the ring and on trail, to learn and build our horsemanship skills. We also have an additional horse class each day to further our understanding of the horse and his world while not in the saddle. This could pertain to anything from cleaning tack and cleaning horses to nutrition and first aid (varies from camp to camp). We provide healthy morning and late afternoon snacks as well as balanced catered in lunches from local restaurants. This year's summer theme from God is A BIG GOD. We will explore biblical truths that testify to His greatness, His giganticness and His never ending desire to give us, His kids, all that He has to offer. He has come that we may have life abundantly! He created texture and flavor and color and laughter and so much more...yet cares enough for each one of us to know the number of hairs on our head. He is BIG...and He is LOVING... and He is in all the details. Come be in awe with us!
We will play silly games as well as team building ones. We'll sing, we'll laugh, we'll show off our artistic talent during crafts and we'll show off our new found horse skills during our Friday horse show.

There is no question - Advanced Camp is a blast! This camp is for rising 8th graders through graduated seniors and requires the camper to already be able to saddle and bridle western tack on their own. They must also already be safe and balanced at the walk and trot, and be working on their canter. This is for safety purposes as there is not much review and instruction for a rider not quite balanced yet. Our other camp for 12-17 year olds would be a better choice for that rider. Ground work is a foundation of horse training as well as a valuable tool for maintaining the trained horse, so groundwork remains a staple in our advanced camp program. The overview of advanced camp is not yet completed but will be posted soon! a few things you can count on is a deeper look into horse care and horse training. This camp is not for the light of heart! It is very intense and very active - rain or shine we are out there working the horses and our selves to learn that we have what it takes to grow into a confident leader for our equine partner. Availability is more limited than the other camps so register today!
