As they say, time flies when you’re having fun, and it certainly has flown here at Camp Sealth! With the end of October, our weekend horse programs have also come to an end for the year. This past Wednesday, our 6 resident horses were packed up and headed back to join the rest of the herd in Eastern Washington for the winter.
The horse workshops this year were a wonderful addition to Camp Sealth’s fall programming. Over 70 different kids, including 2 Camp Fire groups, were able to attend our 15 regular horse workshop days this season. Of those that attended, over 50% were able to join us more than once to participate in all lessons, crafts, games, and chores we offered.
With the overwhelming success of our new program, we are excited to plan for the return of horse workshop days at Camp Sealth beginning again in mid March 2012. With the program’s continuation, we are also hoping to expand the program with a couple more horses, more game offerings, and group-centered activities! Priority registration for groups will be open beginning in January 2012. And in February 2012, all remaining weekend days will be reserved for our regular Horse Workshop program and individuals who would like to sign up for those.
