Please use an email address that you will have access to and immediately check your email after registration to save our camp information. This email contains our location, phone numbers to reach us during camp and other important information. This email will expire after 7 days. If you have any trouble with this email please contact us immediately so that you have the information needed for your child to attend camp

Registration is 2 steps. Step one Pay for your camp week. Step 2 register your child. Please do not register your child without paying first. Any student that does not have a completed registration form on the first day of camp will not attend the first day. They will attend the 2nd day forward. My apolologies but we can not offer a refund for the first day. The directions for registration are posted in several locations on our webite, and facebook, including the directions posted here. In some circumstances there have been emailed, texted and posted on facebook guided images for the registration.

As always we are expecting babies this spring, Possible babies include miniature horses, calves, lambs, kids, ducks and geese. While we can not gaurentee kids will be onsite when these animals hatch or are born, it has happened. Students are allowed to observe from a safe distance giving the new moms privacy. Once newborns are up and about and its safe for them to interact with students , students are able to interact with the new babies in our learning pens.

We follow a general curriculum each week surrounded by daily science activities. Students are also encouraged to question everything and often lessons will follow a group of students interests. An example of this could be finding a spider web on our nature walk that leads us into lessons on arachnids, or a group being particularly interested in how horses see. As such our science is not limited to the curriculum of science we list here.

Animal Science activities all summer and Fall! Learn what its like to live on a traditional family farm. Daily animal interaction with a specific science focus each day.

While we do follow a general farm science based theme no 2 weeks of camp are ever exactly the same. We have students that do attend multiple weeks of camp and they often find they have learned someting new and done something different each time.

    Privately reserved summer camp weeks must have 10 students minimum. If you have registered a private week and any parent does not pay for thier student we will need to fill those spots with other students. Your balance for your privately scheduled week must be paid in full within 2 weeks of the request. At such time empty spots will be posted online for the public to register. A privately scheduled week guarentees your 10 spots at camp. It does not exclude other children from attending the same week if Party Ponies and Friends finds any need to fill the additonal 2 spots. If you want a completely private week you can pay the full balance of 12 students and have as many students as you wish, up to 12 students.

    All Children must be preschool/Kindergarten ready and able to work independantly from parents. We are not a moms and me class. If you would like a moms and me program we can recommmend several other types of programs that would better suit your needs.

    Our summer camp is closed on weekends. We are open Monday-Friday 9:30am-2:30pm by phone. Camp is physically open to campers only during posted camp sessions see above dates. While we understand that we now live in an instant contact and social media directed atmosphere we ask that you be patient and understanding with our teachers and staff members and please remember that they too have families and lives away from work just as you do. Most of the time we can respond to text messages, facebook messages and calls on the weekends and after hours but that is not always the case. Thanks so much for being kind and gracious and understanding that we are people too.

       
     

    Payment Policy. **Please only make your selection when you are ready. Due to the limited space in each camp week we can not offer refunds once you have purchased your week at camp. If you choose to not attend for any reason you will not be given a refund. We ask families to be honest and ethical and understand that once you have chosen to attend camp we are relying on that income to feed our family of both people and critters. If you are unsure about attending camp please make your other scheduling arrangements first before scheduling with us. In extreme circumstances related to hospitalization you may be eligible for a partial refund minus $160 deposit if another student is able to register for the spot you have reserved, and we have reached the capacity of 12 students. If no other student fills your spot you are responsible for the full tuition.

    We do not tolerate bullying in our programs, this includes bullying by parents towards our staff.

    We encourage kids to work out differences during camp and only involve parents when a child or children are unwilling to work out these differencs and continue to be beligerant towards our staff or other children. If your child is asked to leave camp due to a behavioural issue we do not offer a refund of any kind.

    We do not tolerate Parents that bully our staff. If you make threats to our staff in any way. If you threaten to slander us on social media or make an attempt in any way to intimidate our teachers to get your way you will be asked to leave and your child will need to leave with you. You will not be give a refund of any kind.

    COVID updated policy: Due to the recent approval and recommendation that ages 6 month and older get vaccinated many school districts are no longer requiring schools to close when there is a positive covid test. We are following the same reccomendations. Unless your child is showing symptoms of illness there is no reason to test. If they are showing symptoms and test positive we ask that you keep your child home. We will notify camp parents of the exposure and leave camp attendence up to the descreation of the parents. Mardena and I are not concerned about exposure to ourselves. As educators we have been teaching during the entire covid situation taking precautions when neccessary. If you are concerned about your child and exposure we recommend you keep your child home. We are unable to offer refunds for unattended camp dates at this time.

    ** We do not refund processing fees for any reason. For Summer Camp Processing fees average between $15-$30 depending on the number of students in the registration.

    **We are unable to refund processing fees that are a result of an error made by the registering party. If some one else is supposed to pay for your session with us please check with them before you choose to pay. If we recieve 2 payments for the same student we will refund the second payee/payment minus the credit card processing fees. Processing fees include our staffs time addressing why we have to refund a payment in addtion to any fees that Paypal retains for your transaction.

    There is a $30 fee for insufficient funds written on a check. Please understand that we are charged if your check does not clear.

    If you have ever cancelled on online payment to us, cancelled a check or had a check not clear for any reason, your tuition will be due in cash at the time of registration and prior to your students attendance and will include any unpaid balance. If the payment is not recieved within 1 day of the request your students place at camp will not be held.
