|Camping at Marmon Valley
Farm is all about...
Faith, Friends and Farm. That's what
campers have learned to expect and love about summer camp at Marmon
Valley Farm. Faith formation is central to the purpose of our summer
programs! Activities and relationships provide the backdrop for
opportunities to disciple young people and lead them to the savoir,
Jesus Christ in a real and personal way. One on one interaction with
caring staff as well as structured Bible lessons and devotional
opportunities help campers to grow in their Christian faith and learn to
seek the Lord joyously.
The horses are the
greatest attraction for many campers! Through the Certified Horsemanship
Association (CHA) we offer an exciting and safe horse program for boys
and girls of all ages. Each camper is assigned to his own horse or pony
for the week. Every morning is divided into four sessions: Grooming &
Saddling, Arena Riding, Trail Riding and Theory taught with a good
mixture of fun and education by trained instructors. Campers are
evaluated at the end of the week with a riding and written (or oral)
evaluation. Successful completion of the evaluations will result
in campers advancing to the nest level of horsemanship. Please
take note that many levels require more than on week of camp to complete
for most campers. While we are interested in helping campers
become better riders, we are always more interested in the camper
personally than their riding level!
A variety of camps are
offered in our nine week summer. The Original Horse Camp is our time
tested favorite for nearly 50 years now. And now many specialty camps await adventurous
young people looking to specialize their interests. Check out the
options from this summer!
