Great Adventure: This group of campers ages range from 8-13 years old!
If you can guide and direct a 1000 pound horse, just think what else you can do in life! Encouraging words like "You can do it,” help campers to develop the confidence they need to accomplish more than they ever thought possible.
The unique equestrian training methods that we use here at Mystic Mountain team your child up with the perfect instructor and the perfect horse to compliment the rider.
The majority of the horses at Mystic Mountain are a special breed called American Bashkir Curly Horses. They are naturally hypoallergenic, and the Curly’s gentle and friendly spirit make them the perfect horse for anyone who might be intimidated by such large creatures.
In the morning Horsemanship class, students may progress from beginner to advanced as they learn how to care for their horse, communicate with their horse, and develop their riding skills.
The afternoon Hands-On-Horses class change a bit each year to go along with the theme of camp. In the past years we have done themes such as the Frontier and Star Trek. Each different theme has a different lesson to learn more about the horses.
If your child is crazy about these four legged friends, this is the place to learn about one of God’s wonderful creations.
Horsemanship and Hands-on-Horses are available all three weeks of camp.
Sign your kid up for the most exciting, amazing, incredible, exhilarating, and mind-blowing challenge yet!
Campers brave the high-tension ropes, scale walls using nothing but each other, and come face to face with the most challenging element of all, a fallen log. All the while, your kids learn how to work as part of a seamless team with their fellow campers.
Warning: no challenge course experience is the same. Our staff have been trained to adapt the challenge course so that our curriculum will perfectly match your camper’s needs and develop their skills.
Campers have the time of their lives, build confidence, and learn what real friendship means.
Challenge Course is available all three weeks of camp.
Creative Connections & Theater:
The morning class of Creative Connections is a place for your child to let their creativity shine! Campers create amazing works of art, like tie-dyed silk scarves, duct tape handbags, glass mosaics, sterling silver jewelry, and clay sculptures. There is no end to the possibilities. And most importantly, they will learn about the Author of creativity.
The afternoon class of Theater will teach your child the dramatic arts of improvisation and voice projection through teaching, games, and activities. This is a class that will have your child laughing quick!
The Creative Connections and Theater classes are available during all three weeks of camp.
Riflery and Archery:
Dedicated teen instructors and NRA certified adults are waiting to give hands-on individualized instruction to your child. The morning Marksmanship program focuses on the four areas of safety, accuracy, creativity, and skill, as students learn how to properly shoot and handle a .22 caliber rifle. Both boys and girls find this a rewarding sport, learning skills that will last a lifetime.
Plenty of surprises await your child in the afternoon archery class. Again, safety, accuracy, creativity, and skill are the focus, as students practice hands-on basics from proper stance to draw and release. Traditional targets will be used as well as many specialty targets.
If your child is an experienced shooting sports enthusiast and owns their own shooting equipment, we highly suggest that they bring it so that your child’s skills may be fine tuned on their own equipment.
Shooting Sports classes are available all three weeks of camp.
The cost of a week of camp is $225.
