Winter can be an incredibly hard time of the year for folks who struggle with mental health issues. Currently, at HIS Haven Ranch, we provide two 5-week Winter Horse Camps to help with that! Winter Horse Camp provides peer socialization as well as the components of horse camp that every camper wants – time with a horse!!!!

This camp will incorporate three components:  Bible study fellowship over supper, animal husbandry/barn management, and practicing our horsemanship ground skills.  There is no horseback riding in this camp.  Each camper will need to bring supper & beverages in a cat-proof bag đŸ™‚  They should be dressed in layers and warmly!  Hand/boot warmers are a great investment to keep your campers comfortable. 

In the past, we have asked for a free-will donation.  Due to the rising costs of the program (feed/hay costs, veterinary bills, insurance, paid staff to care for our growing herd, etc.), we have had to implement a fee structure to stay sustainable. The fee for our 5-week Winter Horse Camp is $150.  If you have a financial need, please do not hesitate to reach out to us for grant information. As always, we will do our best to accommodate your family’s needs.

Ideas to help encourage your rider to earn funding for horse camp are by doing jobs for others (yard work, garage cleaning, babysitting etc.), organizing a Pizza Ranch Tip Night to benefit the Ranch, a Facebook Fundraiser, fundraiser, candy bar sales, bagging groceries for tips, etc.

Please do not hesitate to call if you have any questions or concerns!
