Camp FreeSpirit is a great opportunity for children to learn and grow as their minds
take a break over the summer from their regular learning in school. Teamwork is taught
and encouraged as the children partner together to care for their assigned horse
as they learn how to ride and groom it. Creativity and new skills are used through
crafts such as making birdhouses, painting flower pots, and even painting horses!
Campers learn about plants through Kopper Top's horticulture program that is integrated
into day camp. Sometimes the campers get the opportunity to see the veterinarian
and the farrier working with the horses. Kopper Top incorporates into Camp FreeSpirit
different aspects from each of their other programs to teach the campers as much
as possible about life on a farm and caring for animals. In Camp FreeSpirit, campers
are encouraged to learn more...to learn about the horses, to learn about the world,
to learn about and care for each other, and to learn about themselves.
