"CAMP CHAMP" Summer Camps

TREE House of Greater St. Louis is excited to offer an inclusionary summer camp experience for children ages 5 to 18 with and without disabilities. Camp Champ is a great blend between therapeutic and recreational activities for your child to learn, grow, make new friends, and learn new and interesting skills!

All participants will have hands-on activities with horses, including grooming, tacking, and riding. Campers will have multiple encounters with our horses each day. Campers will also participate in various other activities that will involve music, art, outside play, and will have presentations from various “guest performers”.

Each week of Camp Champ offers a full-day or half-day program. Since our campers will be of varying age groups and functional levels we will grade activities individually so that every camper will be able to participate and enjoy their activities. We will have occupational therapists, art therapists, music therapists, as well as certified riding instructors to facilitate activities to ensure every participant has a great summer camp experience.

At TREE House of Greater St. Louis we pride ourselves on having a great facility! We have more than 80 acres to play on that include an indoor and outdoor riding arenas, a sensory trail, riding trails, a pond, and a large multi-purpose room that is air conditioned. All camp activities are “weather permitting” and held at our facility at 332 Stable Lane in Wentzville, MO. Our indoor arena is not air conditioned but we are able to beat the heat most of the time with our two industrial size barn fans. If it does get too hot for even the barn fans to save us we will have various other activities lined up; our horses can always use a good bath!

All camps are open to children with and without disabilities. All children with disabilities who are not currently registered riders at Therapeutic Horsemanship may be asked to schedule a pre-camp introductory session at Therapeutic Horsemanship. A $50 non-refundable registration fee, which will be applied to the cost of your first week of camp, is required to hold your slot. Camp size is limited to allow for a low camper to staff ratio.
