A day in the life of 1870 Farm Summer Camp

A typical summer day at 1870 Farm will include a morning meet-up after which camp groups might choose from a variety of farm activities: animal care, garden work, hiking, construction, making goat soap or pickles, or fishing in the pond! Farm care time is followed by electives. Campers might visit the art space and get creative, engage in a good ol’ game of capture the flag, explore the forest and build forts, try their luck at gem mining or archery, or even embark on a historical scavenger hunt. Once campers have worked up an appetite, the groups gather again for snack and stories. Afternoons at 1870 Farm are filled with electives such as photography, theater, visual art, engineering, tinkering, water explorations and more. Lunch, organized group games and ongoing, long term farm activities fill our afternoons until parents arrive. Every week includes animal care, gemstone mining, photography, art, creative construction and outdoor games. Campers 10 and over will get an opportunity to participate in our Entrepreneurs Club to design, create and earn “farm dollars”!

Bouncing Bulldogs Rope Skipping Camp

Bouncing Bulldogs Summer Camp is a great introduction to a life-long, healthy, fun sport. 

A wonderful summer day camp for boys and girls ages 5-16, emphasizing building self-confidence in children. Especially fun is the jump roping show that parents are invited to attend on the last day of each camp, including amazing feats by some of the Bulldogs' best (ALL of the jumpers, all ages, are amazing)! It is incredible how quickly even the littlest jumpers learn tricky jump-roping moves under the close direction of the very experienced and friendly camp counselors.

Coach and Camp Director Ray Frederick is nationally and internationally renowned, and under his direction the Bouncing Bulldogs travel and compete around the world. The Bouncing Bulldogs performed in China during the Summer 2008 Olympics, and they have been all over the country (including performing at the White House!), and all around the world including places such as Sri Lanka and Tibet among many others. The Bouncing Bulldogs jump roping team are 7-Time National Champions!

Attend a Bouncing Bulldogs demonstration and prepare to be amazed. Kids perform astonishing, seemingly gravity-defying jump roping feats as a team, and they gain tremendous self-esteem and confidence.

Blue Skies of Mapleview Horsemanship Summer Day Camp

Blue Skies of Mapleview offers week-long Summer Day Camps where campers learn about horsemanship, go on trail rides, play games, work on horse-theme crafts projects, swim in the pool, and have a wonderful time!  Here is a description of a day at Blue Skies of Mapleview Summer Day Camp from Deborah Pearson-Moyers (Owner/Instructor):

We gather in the morning to learn about the theme of the day such as balance, horse body language, equine massage and stretching, or trail riding rules of the road. Then, in teams, we catch, groom, tack up our horses and focus on riding skills. In addition, each team masters an important aspect of on-the-ground horsemanship. After a cool break on the porch for lunch and a little downtime, we begin an artistic activity designed to help us really look at and understand horses. We end the day with games and a refreshing dip in the pool. Our emphasis is on fun and safety for the riders and the horses, skill development, building self-esteem, and nurturing our respect and love for these beautiful animals.
