A fun and educational horseback riding camp in NJ! Kafka Farms summer programs offer youth and young teens an active, healthy, and safe place to develop their horsemanship skills and build personal confidence. Campers learn in a safe, relaxed, and fun atmosphere through demonstrations, hands-on barn activities, and riding lessons. Campers are instructed from the first day on safety skills around a horse. They learn essentials about horse behavior and also experience important lessons in horse care through grooming, tacking, and specially-designed games and practices. Instruction includes lessons on anatomy, color/breed, and markings. Learning is reinforced through creative craft projects and activities taking advantage of Kafka Farms.
We welcome campers from 4 1/2 years old to 14 years old in our two camp venues: Day Camp (9-14) and Ponies & Friends Half-Day Camp (5 1/2 - 8). These age groups align with our year-round instructional program, and reflect physical and emotional development levels, as well as the mental discipline to focus and recall information, all of which combine to form the foundation of a safe and constructive riding experience. If you have any questions about age requirements or programs, please call 908 405-8038 or email kafkafarms.com . Students need to meet the age requirement by the start date of their camp session.
