What our campers say

“A new experience was riding horses bareback. I felt at one with the horse, and that we are all God’s ideas of cooperation, respect, obedience, appreciation, and joy!  It made me want to feel that oneness with people, too.”

- Camper

“A really fun activity that my whole cabin enjoyed was horseback riding. It really just let me learn about the horses and laugh and play with the wranglers.  I really enjoyed just focusing and putting all trust in God.”

- Camper

“Working with horses and Wranglers helped my son grow so much in patience, confidence and expressing unconditional Love.  He went on the Pack Trip and was really excited to be able to canter in the Horse Show.  It is wonderful to know the kids are making Christian Science their own.”

- Parent
