Camp Horsin' Around

ConnectMed is committed to continuing and expanding our horse therapy programs, focused on using horses’ innate ability to give immediate feedback to human emotions and body language to help address emotional and behavioral issues.

Camp Horsin’ Around is our week-long program available at no cost to San Diego youth, ages 7-17, with disfigurements and disabilities, provided in partnership with Mustard Seed Ranch. Led by an equine therapist from MSR, the program incorporates both horse-related activities and group therapy to improve self-esteem, self-awareness, and resilience. Horse-related activities include learning how to approach, walk, and groom a horse, as well as the basics of riding. Group therapy includes team-building games, daily journaling, and using art and play to facilitate self-expression and group discussions. NEW THIS YEAR: We hope to offer our first-ever sleepaway option for our campers!

Also new this year – we are offering a multi-week group therapy program to help build relationship skills through equine therapy!
