Heartland Therapeutic Riding Camp

Heartland Therapeutic Riding Camp

Day Camp | Specialty Camp

Heartland Therapeutic Riding’s Hearts and Hooves Summer Camp is a week-long camping experience for children ages 8-13 with and without special needs. The campers are divided into small groups allowing them to rotate through the following stations and experiences: Riding Lessons, Arts and Crafts, and inclusive games and activities. The campers are exposed to many aspects of horsemanship which includes riding, horse card, and grooming. 

Our campers learn all aspects of horsemanship in an environment that accounts for physical, cognitive, and emotional challenges. Instructors set goals with each camper at the beginning of the week with regard to riding skills they want to learn. We see changes in behavior, self-confidence, as well as, improvement in riding skills and horsemanship knowledge.

“When I'm at camp, I feel like a normal kid. Some kids don't get to go outside because our parents are just working too much and too hard. At home, I'm just watching movies all day. I don't want to get too old to come to Wildwood.”

“Without the support of Camps for Kids and the matching fund, CHD Families would be unable to provide a free medically supervised summer camp for kids with Congenital Heart Defects.”

“I look back on the struggle of my childhood and one of the most important and best childhood memories I have include the time spent at camp with the amazing men and women who treated me like I was normal despite my struggle”
