OUTDOOR SUMMER DAY CAMP FOR KIDS OF ALL ABILITIES AGE 6+
Join us at Triple H Ranch, NCEFT’s outdoor on-site camp facility, for a week of old-fashioned barn fun. Happy Trails Camp is an outdoor summer day camp for kids of all abilities, aged 6 & up. We welcome NCEFT patients** with disabilities as well as their siblings (with or without disabilities). Together they will explore the great outdoors; take daily ATV rides; discover the joys of dogs, donkeys, chickens, and horses; get creative with arts and crafts; and maybe even get a little wet with drippy popsicles and water balloons. The week culminates with a ride on NCEFT’s therapy horses on Friday. All campers will be partnered with a “Buddy” young adult counselor, providing a uniquely personal camp experience with plenty of supervision and fun.
- INTERACT WITH ANIMALS. Groom and pet horses. Read stories to chickens. Lead a dog on an obstacle course. We might even dress up a donkey or two!
- EXPLORE THE GREAT OUTSIDE. Explore the NCEFT property on an ATV or in a horse-drawn carriage. Go on scavenger hunts and nature walks.
- GET CREATIVE. Paint horseshoes, make puppets and other arts and crafts. Draw pictures with sidewalk chalk or shaving cream. Have a water balloon toss with your Buddy or blow bubbles and watch them fly away.
- TAKE A RIDE. On the final day of camp, take a ride on an NCEFT horse!
Happy Trails Camp is open to all current NCEFT patients & clients able to engage in a large group setting. Space is limited to 20 campers, and each participant’s application will be approved by their NCEFT therapist or instructor.
