I also need an assistant to help with day camp programs for the day..9-5pm just call me)
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 15 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. I promise to keep them busy and happy during their stay at the camp. To view a description of each week offered this season, go to our camp descriptions page.
*special note: there is currently a detour at Rt 11 and Rt 90...check with me before driving out if you are lost. At this time, 5/14/13, you can exit onto 11, but only Northbound..then go the the next exit (seven hills road), and turn around at that exit and head south to 307. Just a mile or so out of your way. Or locals can go through Austinburg, rt 45 to 307 east..to 46 south to 307 east again.. then go to east union road and turn right to the farm. I will try to keep everyone informed of the roadwork this summer. 440-858-2244
CAMP CHANGES FOR 2013:
This season, the Summer Camp and the Local Riding lessons will include training sessions, training camps and training lessons for local riders. Whether you own your own horse, are thinking of purchasing a horse of your own, or decide to ride one of the horses on the Farm here, learning to train your horse to respect you and be a willing partner in your love for horses is essential. After listening to our students and campers, we will now offer two weeks of training camp this year. Every camp will touch on the basics of how to be safe around your horse, (on the ground, in the barn, and mounted) but these two weeks will work on helping each camper develop their skills to a point that your camper will feel safe, happy, and secure with their riding. If you have a horse now, and are not happy with the horses' training, or maybe you have not begun to train your new equine, these two weeks of camp are perfect for you. If your young rider wants to be with their horses all day long..training and riding..then our camp will not disappoint them. Hours of riding and work with your horse is our goal here. Our counselors and trainers will show you how to begin and continue to work with your horse throughout your riding career. Consider bringing your own horse for a week or two of training at the Farm. Campers without their own horses, can reserve one of our horses for the week at no extra charge. Come one week, or two, but call in early to make sure you camper has a spot in the camp of your choice. Reservations are open now for all weeks of riding and fun at the Farm. Call 440-858-2244 and ask for Candy.
COST OF PROGRAMS:
Each full week of camp is $900. 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 a small 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.
Half week camps are $450, and are offered for the younger girls who may not want to stay away from home for the entire week. For whatever reason, half weeks are offered for the convenience of parents who may need a shorter stay at the camp. 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.
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 $65 per rider, with a minimum of 16 riders needed to make reservations. Content of program will be developed by leaders of your group. Beginner programs, training programs, 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 trainig 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.
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, one hour private 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 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.
Day Camps are also available throughout the summer months. Monday through Friday, day camps are available for girls 8-18 years old. The cost is $45 for the 10am-4pm day, and $50 for the 9am to 5pm day. Girls will participate in a ground lesson, riding lesson and lunch is provided for the campers. To make reservations for day camp, you need only to call a few days ahead of time. If space is available in the week, day campers may attend as many days during the week as they want. Horses are available for day campers at no extra charge. All tack and equipment is provided. Helmets are required for all programs, and are supplied for those who don't have them. An Insurance Release Form is necessary for attendance to the Day camp programs. (see forms page for a copy) Call ahead of time for reservations for day camps
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.
