SUMMER CAMPS ➤ Camps, from Page 20 two counselors, barn manager and certified lifeguard. Campers may bring their own horse to camp on space available basis. Register early. Your children will enjoy meeting lots of animals, exploring nature, spending time on the water and learning about horses at Grovespring Farm. It’s definitely a place to have fun. They have friendly dogs that bring the ball back over and over begging you to throw it one more time, a cat that loves laps, and horses and ponies of different sizes and breeds. There are creeks with crayfish and jewelweed. Blackberries, wine berries and raspberries line the pastures. The pond has fish that love to be caught and released as well as canoes and kayaks for learning and practicing paddling skills. There’s an arts pavilion and a sports field. The camp at Grovespring is relatively small. Groups are divided into eight to work on skills such as horseback riding, paddling, arts and drama. At the end of the day campers are given a choice of ac-

tivities: they can spend extra time with the horses, finish art projects or play Capture the Flag. Campers create a community by helping each other whether it’s making ice cream or singing a song. Most of the counselors have been campers and junior counselors. They love being outside, in the pond, with the horses, in the creek, and each have skills to share. The riding camp includes lessons in basic horsemanship as well as how to ride. The farm’s farrier and veterinarian visit. Groups are divided by skill level. More advanced students are encouraged to take the USHJA Horsemanship quiz challenge. Staff includes Susan Deal, a USHJA certified instructor and Equestriancoach.com has produced a video series of Susan teaching riding. Kris Deal is a high school teacher, former coach, long-time white-water canoe instructor, and avid outdoorsman.
