Can-Do-It Farm Camp

*Thank you for visiting the web site of Can-Do-It Horse Farm

As summer draws to a close, I want to thank all of my old campers for returning to the Farm, and my new campers for joining the family this season.  We appreciate all of you, and hope you had a great time at the summer riding camps.  The riding lessons will begin this fall, and local riders may call or email to join a group or ride private if they wish.   I will keep approximately 15 horses available for riding lessons this winter.  I do have room for one boarder in the barn this winter.  Just call the farm if you wish to board with us.  We are located in Jefferson, Ohio.  Approx. 60 minutes West of Erie, Pa, and the same from Cleveland, Ohio.

Enjoy the web site, and please call me if I can help you with your riding needs.  The CDI Tack Shoppe will be open year-round.  Tuesday through Saturday, 10am until 5pm.   Norm Stokes is the owner/operator, and will keep riding supplies and supplements for you and your horse.  Please call the shoppe if you have any special questions about what is in stock.  Norm carries a terrific supply of Breyer Model Horses in the store.   English saddles, strap goods, and medical and supplement supplies for all horses.   An open house will be held right after Thanksgiving, (Friday, Sat, and Sunday).  Be sure to stop in for some special Holiday sales and items for your horse-crazy friends for Christmas.   Candy will be teaching everyone to ride and enjoy their horses.   Join us for some "Clinton Anderson" training methods lessons.  You will be surprised at what you can learn. 

I will post new camps for 2015 later in the fall.   Be sure to visit us later in the season to see what is new for next year!

Can-Do-It Farm is a very special horse camp for girls. Not a show stable, but a working farm.   We only take a maximum of 10 girls each week to make sure that each camper has the attention she needs. We have been in business, in the same location, and with the same Camp Director since 1975!   Don't miss the chance for your camper, who loves horses, to attend a camp that is ALL about horses, all day long.  No other sports offered, just HORSES.  Bring your own horse, or ride one of the Farm horses.  Please take some time to investigate our web site for information you may need to make this decision that your "horse crazy" girls are counting on.  You may call me anytime for information.   I will be posting new information for next season on the web site in the next couple of months.   I am planning new camp sessions, and a few changes that you will notice when you visit the site in the future.   Old campers (from 2014) can sign up for camp in December of 2014..New campers may sign up  in January of 2015.   We hope to see all of our previous campers next season.  Thank you all for your participation in our 2014 summer horse camp.    We appreciate it, and will be sure to make next year another great season

When your camper wants to attend a horse camp, you look for a camp that has been in business for a long time, with a history of campers who loved the experience and have returned for many years.  Can-Do-It Farm has been in business since 1975, with the same camp director.  Not a show stable, and non-competitive, we are a comfortable working farm where our campers are part of our family atmosphere.  Safety is our main concern, and our campers are taught the right way to ride and care for this magnificent animal that they love so much.  Week-long camps begin every Sunday during the summer, and are limited to 10 girls per session.  Beginner, Intermediate and advanced riders are welcome into our many sessions that are offered. So give your camper a week or more of excitement, fun, learning, and horses.   Camps this season are now closed.  We begin taking reservations in January, 2015. 

Watch our web site for future descriptions of camps for 2015 !!

 I will be updating the camp site soon.   Summer camps are over for the season.  We will host a few girl scout outings, and resume our regular riding lesson schedule.  Thank you to everyone who attended summer horse camp this year.  I will look forward to the 2015 season. 



COST OF PROGRAMS:      see forms page for more information    I will be keeping the same prices, again, for 2015.


      Each full week of camp is $950.  This includes everything your camper needs throughout the week.  All meals, riding lessons, tack and equipment, room and board, and of course a horse for your campers for the week.  If you have your own horse, and wish to bring him/her along with your camper, just call ahead and let us know.  We will have a stall ready for your horse, and you may leave your trailer on the camp during the week of stay.  There is an extra charge for bringing your own horse, ($85) and will cover hay, board, bedding, and turnout areas.  Please bring your own grain for the week-long stay, as we don't want to change your horses grain for safety reasons. Please note a 200# weight limit for campers. (this is for the safety of the horses and the riders)  The Farm is now taking reservations for all weeks of camp 2014. 

     Half week camps are $475, and are offered for the younger girls who may not want to stay away from home for the entire week, or campers who wish to experience a shorter stay at the farm.  For whatever reason, half weeks are offered for the convenience of parents and campers.  Most weeks are open for half week campers.   Arrival time is Sunday 2pm and pickup time is Wednesday at 10am.  For those who wish to stay the second half of a week, arrival time is Wednesday 2pm, and pickup time is Saturday at 10am.  Note that Saturday departures will include a short demonstration for parents to watch.  10am until noon is the average time for the girls to demo their skills for the parents to watch.  Riders may decide to stay the rest of the week if there is room in the camp.

   (currently filled for fall of 2014)   Girl Scout and Group overnight programs:  Special groups (girl scouts, 4-h clubs, pony clubs, or church groups) are welcome to book an overnight program on the Farm.   Rates begin at $70 per rider, with a minimum of 16 riders needed to make reservations. .   Content of program will be developed by leaders of your group, along with the Camp Director.  Beginner programs, training programs (new this season), or just fun riding lessons are set up for you by calling the Camp director.  All meals are included in your programs.  5pm one evening, until 1pm the next day.  Usually Fridays and Saturdays are set up for these programs; however, we can make arrangements to find a time and date that will work for your groups.  Consider a 4-h training day to help get ready for your local fair competitions, a fun overnight program for a group of girl scouts and leaders, a mother-daughter overnight with horses!,  What could be more fun.   Just use your imagination for an overnight that your kids (and yourself) will remember always.   Just make sure that "Horses" are the main interest!  :)  **spring dates are filled at this time.  I do have a couple of openings in September.  Call soon.

    Riding lessons are offered on the Farm for local riders who live near to the camp.   Prices vary for different programs.  We offer half-hour lessons for beginners 10 yrs old and under only, one hour private lessons for all,  or semi-private or group lessons also.  We also offer special 2-hour training program classes, one day special sessions.  Lessons are paid for "one at a time".  We do not collect for a series of lessons, as each family may have obligations to other sports, work, etc.   Ages for group riding lessons begin at 8 and include teens, adultls, and grandparents also.   Boys are also welcome to our lesson program.  Our camping programs and overnight programs are for girls only, as we have one bunkhouse.  Note:  weight limit for riders is 200 lbs. This is for the safety of both horse and rider. 


 Open year-round....   TACK SHOP.  A fully stocked English tack shop is located on the summer camp, and week-long campers will receive a 10% discount during their camp stay on most items in the shop.   Campers may run a "charge" account with the permission of their parents during their stay at the camp.  Helmets, Tack, supplies, clothing, boots, Breyer horses, horse-related items, and gifts are all available in the shop.
