Thank you for your interest in our summer camps!  Dream Catchers at the Cori Sikich Therapeutic Riding Center is a Professional Association of Therapeutic Horsemanship International (PATH Intl.) Premier Accredited Riding Center.  We provide a variety of programs and services to children and adults from age 4 through senior citizens all utilizing the unique qualities of horses.  Our programs are taught by certified professionals who bring years of experience to our team and who put safety and best practices first. 

Inclusion Camps:

Looking for an extraordinary camp experience for your child this summer? Look no further than Dream Catchers’ Inclusion Summer Camps. Each day campers will receive both mounted riding and ground lessons in order to learn proper horsemanship while having tons of fun!  The camp will help to build positive relationships with fellow campers, our equines, staff, and counselors.  The benefits of inclusion are numerous and helps children with and without special needs. When we include all children in our programs, they learn acceptance of other people, and that each person has unique abilities. Children learn from each other. Inclusion allows children with special needs an equal opportunity to participate in the same types of programs and activities as children without special needs. Some of the benefits of inclusion for children with (or without) disabilities are friendship skills, peer models, problem solving skills, positive self-image, increased understanding and acceptance of diversity and respect for others.

Camp Resilience

About Camp Resilience

Camp Resilience provides children ages 7 to 13 (some age exceptions granted—please call with questions) of military families with an unforgettable experience with a four-day horse camp. Camp Resilience gives these children hope, patience, and courage all through connecting with our amazing equine partners. This camp will allow them to just be kids again! Through therapeutic interventions and equine-based activities, certified PATH Intl. Instructors and Equine Specialists in Mental Health and Learning teach children how to cope with their changed world due to military service, deployment, relocation, injury or loss of a family member as a result of their service in our country’s military. 

Camp Resilience offers a week of summer fun for military kids with parents who are active duty military or who have been, are currently, or will be deployed.  Children who are connected through the military often have unique needs and share similar experiences that include frequent moves, prolonged separations, and deployments of family members.  This camp will also focus on the strengths that military children possess that will in turn improve their coping skills.  Each day will center around a theme that highlights the strengths of military children and will be intertwined into the equine riding and ground based activities.
