Can-Do-It Farm  Horse Camp   2020 camps!!!

Can-Do-It Farm summer camp began in 1975. Girls from all over the world have attended the camp over the years. We take 10 girls each week of horse camp, and our main interest is horse-related activities. Teaching young girls to be safe around horses while enjoying all of the excitement of riding and learning about them is our goal. If you have a young camper who just "loves" horses, and everything that goes along with them...this may be the right camp for you. It is small, family run, and in business for many years. We have all of the horses at the camp, and provide safety helmets for all riders. Our counselors are young ladies who have attended our camps in the past, and have returned to spread the joy of horses to our younger campers. We truly love horses and everything that goes with them. We want your campers to learn the right way to interact with these wonderful animals. From training on the ground, riding at all levels and styles, and making horses a part of their lives. This is our goal at Can-Do-It Farm. Candy Stokes is our Camp Director and has been since 1975. We hope to see you this summer.    ony 5 weeks of camp this season, so call early !!

**special note:  during this medical crisis, all camps will be on hold until June 28th...We will look at the siituation at that time to be sure all camps will be safe and available for our campers.   All of our camps are filled at this time, If you have paid your deposits, I will be contacting you in June to be sure our camps will go on as scheduled.  We have no problems in our farm area at this time, and hope that all of you are safe also.  Norm and Candy are taking care of horses and are healthy and "very alone :)"  we are hoping for the very best for everyone.  Thank you for your trust in our camps.  We hope that all will be GREAT by summer :)    The horses are SO ready for some kids :) With 125 acres of open land, and 2,000 foot of road frontage, we are truly "out in the country".  

Sincerely,  Candy and Norm Stokes/  Owners

  

Our camps for 2020 are filled at this time.  Note that 6 or less campers will be able to attend this season, with the first camp beginning on Sunday, June 28th with jumping week. Our last camp is scheduled to start on July 26 and end on August 1st.    At this time, it appears that we will be able to continue; however, if we feel it is necessary to reschedule or cancel, we will be in touch with parents.  If any family wishes to withdraw from camp, please give us notification asap, so we can look over our schedules for the month of July.   There will be no camps until June 28th.  Special needs will be addressed during camps this season.   Requirements will be sent out to all campers that are now enrolled.  Our goal is to keep our girls safe and happy .   125 acres of and, and a 2,000 foot frontage on the Farm will help in keeping our "distance" from others.  We will not have any visitors , including  campers' parents during the week.   Check in will be Sundays, keeping our check-in to parents and campers only.  No visitors please.  I am counting on the Horses to keep our girls very happy during their week.   I will be caring for the girls while they are here, along with  very responsible counselors to help with all aspects of camp.   Safety equipment will be provided, and sanitized for all campers   ie:  helmets, protective vests, and all tack for their needs.  I will be checking in with parents in plenty of time to answer all of your questions.  I appreciate your confidence in our camp to keep your girls SAFE and Happy too !  

     We understand everyone's worries, and will do our very best to make sure this summer is open for your girls to enjoy riding and learning about horses all day long.  I am open for any suggestions that parents may have.  Please feel free to contact me, Candy, at  candystokes2244@gmail.com

*remember, if you do decide NOT to attend, please let me know asap so I can either fill your spot in that week, or if too many cancel, I may have to cancel that week of camp.   Thank you for your cooperation. 

  If we are forced to cancel our camps this season, be assured that I will do everything in my power to return all of your deposits asap.  

   

Located in Jefferson, Ohio the Farm has been serving the community for many years. we now have campers attending who are children of previous campers! We depend on campers referring other girls who love horses as much as they do! So please pass the word around to the girls who want a camp that is all about horses, all day, every day.

Please check out some of the special pages on the site. our "horse talk" is fun to read, and will introduce you to the horses. You can see pictures of the horses on the "horses" page of the site. We hope you will enjoy the web site, and maybe give our summer camp a special "look" for your horse loving young campers. Our camp is very  small, but loaded with fun and learning for girls who really love horses, ALL DAY LONG.

 Note that our camps are filled for July, but I will take a wait list for anyone who did not secure a week. If in doubt, please call the Farm.   No more than 6 girls per week are now signed up.

Our horses reside on the Farm all year round and await the arrival (or return) of campers who love them. the dates are listed below for the upcoming season. sign ups are now underway.  

HERE IS A LIST OF THE NEW CAMPS FOR THE SUMMER OF 2020    SIGN UP EARLY TO RESERVE YOUR SPOT

JUNE 28-JULY 4TH....Jumping "after the cross Rails" week of riding camp.  This special camp is deisnged for the rider who has taken lessons and progressed through the "cross rails" phase.  If your camper is ready to advance and do some jumping that includes more than x-rails, this camp is the one for her.  this camp will include practice over all types of jumps.  learn courses, set up distances in a ring, jump straight bars, oxers, and all types of new fences.  Advance their skills and challenge their ability level.  Protective vests are required, along with helmets (of course).  the farm has many vests available if riders do not have one of their own.  Safety is first in this week of jumping and learning.  Bring your own horse, or ride one of ours at no extra charge.  Call EARLY to enroll, as we only take 6 riders into this week.  (Note:  as of Feb/ 7, there is a waiting list for this camp)  

JULY 5-11TH... All around horse lovers week of riding, any age welcome.  Does your camper LOVE horses?  This week will give your camper a chance to spend an entire week with a horse of her own.  Feeding, grooming, training, riding, and tacking and lessons will fill the day with horses and activities.  The special bond with horses comes with lots of time spent with them.  This week gives the girl's quality time with a horse that she can get to know all week long.  There is nothing better for the inside of a young girl than the outside of a beautiful horse!  Sign up early, as only 6 girls will be enrolled.   (as of Jan 20, there are 4 openings) 

JULY 12TH TO 18TH....A week of "fun and Games" with your horse ....  Lots of riding lessons, and games on horseback will keep your horse-loving camper busy all day, every day.  Any age rider will enjoy all types of horse activities this week.  Grooming, riding lessons 2x daily, ground lessons on topics relating to horses and ther care.  (health care, feeding, tack and equipment, training lessons, basic foot care, summer and winter care, dressae, jumping basics, bareback riding, giving baths to your horse, round-pen training, and much more)  A must week for any girl who loves horses and wants to be safe around them while learning.  Bring your own horse or use ours.  Come with a friend!  come alone!  Only 6 campers accepted in this cvamp.  Call early.

JULY 19TH TO 25TH  "VERSATILITY" week of riding, any age riders.   This week is a special week of versatility, which means we will teach the girls all of the different styles of riding.  Western, English, Dressage, jumping, cross country, and even bareback riding.  Horses are very open to riding in differenty types of "tack" and equipment.  Riders need to experience the changes that are needed to go from one style to another.  Campers can chose to ride one style all week, or change to another style to "try it out" for a lesson or two.  Lessons will be given 2x daily and ground work will include many different subjects that our campers are interested in.  This is a great week for any ability level rider.  Riders may bring their own horse or ride ours.  This new camp will be open for 6 riders this year.  (as of January 20, there is only one opening )  

JULY 26TH TO AUGUST 1ST  Riding "Cross Country" flat and over fences...Inside a ring or out in the 125 acres of beautiful fields and jumps, your camper will enjoy taking their skills a little further.  This week will give the girls a chance to get out of a ring and enjoy the land availalbe for them to ride on.  An assortment of jumps throughout the farm will challenge your riders to a new kind of jumping and riding.  Flat and over fences will be worked on.  Safety in the field is so important and most riders don't have enough practice in the open areas.  They will be required to wear helmets and protective bvests during their week, and I can supply them with safety equipment if they don't have it while they are here.  riders will learn how to approach and analyze each jump to be sure they are safe and confident.  riders should come to this camp with basic skills already.  No beginner riders please.  (As of Jan 20th, there is one opening)
