My daughter had the best week at the farmhouse Center this summer! She rode horses every morning and was proud to tell me she was even able to trot. She had fun cooking, crafting, gardening, playing soccer, and swimming too. The Farmhouse Center is a loving environment that fosters respect and teamwork. My daughter told me, "Miss Joan says we are like a big family", and thats exactly how it felt. We can't wait for next year!

Our son had a pretty good time, but based on what he told me he only got to ride a horse only once, which he was upset about. I also was also looking forward to seeing results of the digital photography, but it does not seem that there was any photography. Not sure if he would go back next year. Overall it just seemed a lot of money for 1 day of riding.

My niece has attended this class for a week this summer and is currently doing another week because she had such a wonderful time. This was an extremely supportive environment for Sammy, she loved the camaraderie and of course spending hours at the barn learning about horse care and riding. The older girls and counselors were excellent role models for Sammy and the enrichment activities and swimming were big hits as well. We feel Sammy gained valuable experiences, was active, had fun and learned about responsibility and team building at farm house center. We feel lucky to have found this special camp!...more

I have had 2 daughters attend the Farmhouse Center, and they have both LOVED it. The eldest daughter also attends during school vacations, and just about whenever else the opportunity comes up. There are activities of all sorts, from crafts to cooking to horse care, and of course riding. Most impressive is the way the camp encourages all the kids to respect and help each other at all times. The girls can't wait to go again.

3 years ago I suddenly needed to fill a week of summer vacation for the kids and happened upon Farmhouse Center - luck was definitely on my side.
One week wasn't enough for the kids and now they go more plus this year they've been able to go during winter breaks. They LOVE it and can't get enough.
The variety of what they do with the horses, the time outside, the relaxed atmosphere is what they crave. The swimming pool in the summer is an added bonus. The loving dogs are another bonus for the animal lovers that my kids are. They cook and bake too. I once described it to a friend as going to an aunt's house - they feel so welcome and part of the family.
After the rules and rigid structure of school and some other camps, Farmhouse Center is a welcome change. My kids flourish and feel so much a part of what they do there. They love to show me around. The ride home is filled with stories of the day.

My two children attended this camp for one week two years ago. They were hooked and couldn't wait for last summer so they could go every day! They totally enjoy the horses and everything that goes with caring for them. Plenty of activities to keep them busy when they're not with the horses - swimming, berry picking, picnics at the cabin, volleyball, soccer, and just running around - so much better than staying inside playing video games all day. Both my kids look forward to attending the Farmhouse Center again this coming summer as well as Winter Break in a few weeks. If you are looking for a relaxed camp for all ages and riding levels, this is the place to be. ...more

LOVE LOVE LOVE The Farmhouse Center. My Daughter has been attending the Farmhouse Center for the past three summers and now attends on school vacations as well. The experience that she has gained has fostered her love of Animals and has given her knowledge and a sense of community.

The Farmhouse center encourages a diverse group of children of all ages to experience the outdoors, learn about horses, play sports with new friends and swim daily in their in-ground pool.

If you want your child to build memories that will last a lifetime, Start at the Farmhouse Center.

My son participated in the preschool program during the summer of 2013 for two one week sessions. He LOVED it! My son is very shy, and does not take to changes very well. When we first got to the Farmhouse Center he was clinging to me and cried when I left. When I returned to pick him up he ran up to me and said "mom what are you doing here?" When I told him it was time to go home, he didn't want to leave. He cannot wait to go back this summer. He hasn't stopped talking about the horses and when he can go ride again. He also enjoyed the counselors. Overall he thoroughly enjoyed himself!
This is a home based program. It is not run by a Corporation or Franchise, but a wonderful family. The younger kids ride on miniature ponies, but more importantly they can run around in a barn, jump off hay bails and just simply have fun. To me, that merits 4 stars. The only reason I didn't rate it 5 stars b\c I didn't want readers to think Farmhouse Center was a Corporate run program. If that is what you are looking for, then that is not the right program for your child. However, if you are looking for a fun, relaxed in a small group environment, then you might want to look into Farmhouse Center for your child.
