2019 Camp at Sprout!

Join Sprout for horse-filled fun this summer!
Inclusion Camp
We keep kids busy through 6 rotating stations each day – riding, grooming, horsemanship, crafts, farm fit and farm fun.  Each station provides opportunities for students to grow physically, socially, cognitively and build essential horsemanship and life skills!  Themes for each day/week are built around the needs of the campers and we work to accommodate and diversify our instruction and activities. Campers must be able to independently eat, use restroom facilities and stay safe in a group environment or a care-giver must attend.
June 10-14
June 17-21
12:00-4:00 each day
$350 per camper (10% off siblings)
Junior Horsemanship Camp
Riders will have a mounted lesson, a fun ride, ground school and a special activity each day. There will be time in the schedule to have the opportunity to build relationships with the horses through exercises that help horses and riders communicate. This camp is designed to immerse the rider into a deeper relationship with horses and with one another while having fun in a safe and relaxing environment.
Campers must be able to walk and trot without volunteer assistance.

We Accommodate!

Sprout is able to accommodate for various physical, cognitive, sensory and social needs.  Contact Brooke Waldron at Brooke.Waldron@sproutcenter.org for an evaluation.

Before participating, individuals with disABILITIES need to consult with their physician. PATH Intl. riding centers require individuals with a diagnosis to present a complete medical history and a signed physician’s statement prior to camp.

Registration Information
  • Registration at Sprout includes paperwork which will be emailed to you.  Paperwork includes emergency information and release, media release, liability waiver and physician signature (for individuals with a diagnosed disABILITY).  Your student is NOT fully registered for camp until Sprout has this paperwork on file.
  • A non-refundable $100 registration fee is invoiced when registration occurs and is due upon receipt.  This fee is applied to the camp balance.
  • All camp balances must be paid in full ($350/camper with 10% discount for siblings) a minimum of 2 weeks before the start of camp.
  • Campers with unpaid balances and/or incomplete paperwork will be notified and spots will be given to alternate campers if necessary action is not taken.
  • Sprout camps operate with a minimum of 12 and maximum of 24 participants.  Camp spots are given on a first come, first served basis. Sprout reserves the right to cancel camps that do not meet minimum participation requirements.  Should camp be cancelled, all registrations will be granted a full refund of registration and camp fees.
  • Sprout weather policies dictate that programs operate when the temperature is above 25 degrees (actual) and below 110 (real feel).  Sprout operates rain or shine.  If Sprout is in operations, campers will “use or lose” their camp days if they choose not to come.  Should Sprout need to cancel based on weather, all campers will be refunded the pro-rated cost for the day.
