Girls' Empowerment Camp Schedule:

Monday: Touching in and Grounding

On the first day of camp we will be exploring how to care for the horses and how to care for ourselves. We will be doing grooming and art-work activities to explore and reflect on this important topic. In the afternoon we will work with the herd of horses and we will learn how to calm ourselves and how to safely be in relationship with the horses and each other.

Tuesday: Leadership and Embodiment

On this day we will be exploring leadership and what it means to be a leader. We will discuss personal power, body language and communication. We will spend the day working with these topics and learning to lead the horses in a safe and productive way.

Wednesday: Honesty and Conflict

On the third day of camp we will be exploring honesty and conflict. We will spend time educating the girl’s about their brain’s and their body’s reactions to fear and conflict, in an effort to teach them how to work with difficult emotions in a positive way. We will be “joining” with the horses on this day. This activity is all about honesty, connection and relationship.

Thursday: Feeling Powerful

On this day we will be working on the skills we have built so far and we will be increasing our horsemanship skills in preparation for riding on Day 5. In order to feel powerful we need to be able to calm ourselves, be a leader, and communicate honestly. We will use all of these skills in an activity with the horses, concentrating on communication, trust and self-worth.

Friday: Intimacy and Trust

The last day! On this day we will be riding all day long. We will be bringing in all of the tools we have built since Day 1 and we will be celebrating all we have learned and done in the 5 days.

Equine Therapy believes that the use of horses in therapy fosters personal growth and exploration. It can involve riding, lunging, leading, feeding, grooming and herd work dependent on each individual’s needs and desires. It occurs mostly outside in a field or a stall with horses. It has been known to assist many different people with a variety of needs and hopes in therapy.

The horse is an intuitive creature known for its ability to connect with humans and maintain its wild and primal nature. The connection with the horse fosters increased self-esteem and confidence
Working with horses teaches the importance of appropriate boundaries. It increases an individual’s ability to express their needs and emotions clearly. Riding horses increases trunk control, fine motor control and balance. Equine Therapy creates real-life situations in which individuals must learn to develop and integrate life-skills.

The camp costs: $500 for the week

Two week long camps are available:

Session 1: July 13th - 17th
