More FAQs
I provide a sack lunch, but what if my child gets hungry?

Freesom Ride Farms provides two snack times in addition to the child’s lunches.

How many kids will be in each session?

We keep the class sizes small and limit each week to six participants. This ensures each child gets one on one instruction daily and is closely supervised.

Why is the 3-5 year old camp only half a week?

Littles get tired easily. Our camps are filled with active daily schedules and we find a half of a week is about all they will tolerate.

What does my child do all day?

Your child will engage in 2-3 hours of riding instruction daily, arts and crafts activities for 1 hour, animal care and grooming 1 hour, farm animal games, gardening, nature walks, swimming, and limited movie time fill the rest of the day.

What kind of movie is shown?

We begin the week with a small amount of movie time each day. This is one movie portioned throughout the week. The movie is age appropriate and is horse related. Students will discuss what the characters in the movie experienced and how it relates to what they have learned on the farm. No more than 20 minutes each day for the movie. This camp is designed to get kids outside, active and enjoying the farm experience.

Frequently Asked Questions
Who is eligible to sign up for camp?
All kids within the age ranges!
What is the tuition money used for?

The cost of kids camp is what keeps the
farm running. It pays for food for the
animals, veterinary care, and helps with
therapeutic riding programs throughout
the season.

Does my child have to know how to ride?

No, we will take care of that. By the end of the week your child will understand basic horse care, tack, mounting and dismounting, balanced riding, horse control, and will be able to demonstrate these skills on the Friday following camp.

Is it safe?

Horses pose an inherent risk. Our horses are very well trained and all love kids. However, they are horses and can spook or act up. Safety measures are the first learned skill and your child will be closely supervised. All campers will wear an approved and provided riding helmet and receive instruction in a controlled environment. The horses at FRF have over 10 years experience with multiple riders and all are safe for beginners.

Who is instructing?

Lisa Stoffel has over 25 years experience working with horses in various disciplines of western and English pleasure. She is a certified riding instructor through CHA. Lisa has also volunteered at summer horse camps in Oregon and is excited to bring that atmosphere to Michigan.

Can I volunteer?

Absolutely we are always in need of side walkers and chaperones for non horse related activities. If you are interested in assisting with the horse instruction training will be provided the weeks prior to start of camp.

I work and need to drop off my child prior to the start of camp and pick up later, is that a possibility?

Yes, arrangements are made on a case by case bases. An additional fee of $5.00 per day may be arranged for before & after care.

When is the payment due for camp?

You may register at any time. The tuition must be paid no later than the end of May to ensure your registration is held.

I provide a sack lunch, but what if my child gets hungry?
