Kafka Farms Summer Camp 2018
901 Valley Rd., Watchung, 908-405-8038
         Kafka Farms summer programs offer youth and young teens an active, healthy, and safe place to develop their horsemanship skills and build personal confidence. Campers learn in a safe, relaxed, and fun atmosphere through demonstrations, hands-on barn activities, and riding lessons. Campers are instructed from the first day on safety skills around a horse. They learn essentials about horse behavior and also experience important lessons in horse care through grooming, tacking, and specially-designed games and practices. Instruction includes lessons on anatomy, color/breed, and markings. Learning is reinforced through creative craft projects and activities taking advantage of Kafka Farms.
          We welcome campers from 4 1/2 years old to 14 years old in our two camp venues: Day Camp (9-14) and Ponies & Friends Half-Day Camp (5 1/2 - 8). These age groups align with our year-round instructional program, and reflect physical and emotional development levels, as well as the mental discipline to focus and recall information, all of which combine to form the foundation of a safe and constructive riding experience. If you have any questions about age requirements or programs, please call 908 405-8038 or email Students need to meet the age requirement by the start date of their camp session.
          Camp is from 9am-3pm with extended care or early care available.
