School Break Recreation

ARISE at the Farm offers a Spring and Winter Camp during the February school break in the winter and the April school break in the spring.

Spring and Winter Day Camp is open to all children. Campers are paired up and assigned a horse to care for and ride during the week.

Each day, students feed, groom, ride and turn out the horses, clean the stalls and sweep the barns. While the mornings are filled with learning basic horsemanship, the afternoon is filled with crafts, games, and baking.

Family Support Services annually offers 8 students with developmental disabilities scholarships to Winter Day Camp.
