At River Edge Farm Riding Camp girls come to experience a summer of learning and fun. The main activity is learning how to ride a pony or a horse but they also learn about their beloved animal’s habitat. We teach campers an appreciation and respect for the outdoors and nature.
The farm with an organic garden and orchard, chickens, wetlands, woods, pastures, a river across the street is the perfect backdrop to have the girls experience first hand the wonders of nature.
By taking care of their mounts, harvesting veggies in the garden, visiting the river, collecting eggs in the chicken coup campers learn the value and benefits of eating locally grown foods and to be the stewards of their environment.
Activities such as ceramics, baking, needle arts, tennis, swimming, community service, and arts and crafts ensures a fun-filled, safe and healthy summer. At camp we pair two groups of girls with different abilities working together on an assigned pony/horse. This is to encourage and develop an appreciation for team work, compassion and willingness to help others, meet new friends, respect fairness and rules.
The pair/team work on an assigned horse or pony developing a sense of shared responsibility, while working independently on their riding skills.
At River Edge Farm Riding Day Camp we believe that girls will greatly benefit from the interaction with ponies/horses, the environment and each other in a supportive, friendly and fun setting. Based in fun activities and adventures girls will unwittingly develop a higher self-esteem and independence.
For girls 5-16. After care is available. Accredited by the American Camp Association and the State of New Jersey.
