SUMMER CAMPS

Summertime and the camps are calling By Anita L. Sherman

School will be out sooner than we realize. Then for a few weeks the days open to new opportunities for your children. There is no shortage of area camps to consider whether you are looking to immerse your child in art, music, swimming, sports or perhaps learning to ride a horse. You might as well plan early to book dates, budget and then look forward to sharing your child’s experiences. Touch Point Farm offers five days of riding lessons and fun with horses for boys and girls ages six and up. Camps for all levels of rider includes riding lesson, barn lessons, small group instruction and individualized attention. Barn activity is a time for the children to learn about horsemanship. Throughout the week they will learn about horse safety, the parts of the horse, colors, braiding the mane and tail,

cleaning and caring for tack and about the upper levels of riding. Riding lessons will be in small groups, according to ability, for an hour each day. Beginners can expect to learn to control the horse at the walk, and begin to trot, post, and ride in 2-point position. More advanced riders will work on equitation and jumping. While the morning hours at their regular Summer Day Camp will be devoted to horses, the afternoons are filled with swimming, games, free-swim in the pool, crafts, board games and sports. Family and friends can attend a horse show at week’s end. On Friday afternoon students will participate in a horse show for friends and family. In addition to owners Peter and Jan Schwenke, Meredith Schwenke Jones (farm manager and principle riding instructor), staff includes ➤ See Camps, Page 21
