We are very excited to offer new kids fun summer camps this July & August 2018 for children from 5 to 12 years old!

Have a fun-filled summer camp at Festina Lente! Get to know the ponies in the yard when you ride or groom. Get creative with our arts and crafts workshops- make slime, soap, slime, dreamcatchers, bath bombs, slime, clay craft, slime and maybe even… slime. Get outside in the Garden and on the sensory trail for herb walks, nature trails, gardening and scavenger hunts (weather permitting). Activities will vary depending on the weather and age range of the children, but there will always be time for Slime!

The children will be grooming ponies at 10 am then heading into the garden for the craft half of the camp on Monday & Wednesday. They will be riding on Tuesday and Thursday at 10am before getting crafty for the rest of the day. Friday won’t have a horse activity but will be a fun day none the less. Please make sure children arrive 15 MINUTES EARLY on Tuesday and Thursday to ensure we have enough time to get all the children fitted with boots and riding hats so their riding lesson can start promptly at 10.00.

Please pack a snack for elevenses (grooming or riding is hungry work) and a lunch for later. Waterproofs and wellies are always a good idea, and if you know you’ve packed them, we’re bound to get tropical weather, so please do. In the same vein, sun cream might be necessary, we’re hoping so. Looking forward to seeing you!
