Equine Summer Academic Camp

These one-week camps, designed for rising 3-8th graders, provide children opportunities for learning about horses through math, science, art and engineering. We will be physically active while completing projects, hand-on learning activities, games, and crafts, all focused on the world of horses.

"Don't stuff the math and science down their throats," said Dr. Karen Panetta, Dean of Graduate Engineering Education for the School of Engineering at Tufts University. "Rather, approach it by connecting their passions to math and science."  (How to Design Events to Inspire Girls About STEM Careers | PCMag)

Horses are an area of high interest for youth, especially for girls. Academic learning is involved in all aspects of horsemanship and horse care, from feeding and horse care to a dressage judge's scorecard, from the cost of tack to walking a show jumping course. Equine Summer Academic Camp will immerse campers in the real-world connections between horses and STEAM learning
