High Riding Art and Equestrian Camp - Summer I & II
All majors welcome.
The Blackford County High Riding Art and Equestrian Day Camp project will offer authentic experiences for students who may seek to design and implement a day camp program. The students in this project will study psychological, environmental, and cultural factors that contribute to mild and moderate disabilities, and characteristics of individuals with disabilities. Working collaboratively with schools, local service providers, and several community agencies and nonprofit organizations, the students will then plan and implement a two-week long program for children with disabilities. The camp will include horseback riding, art experiences, science, technology, sports, and other enrichment activities. Themed activities will fill each day, culminating in a family carnival.
