Enroll In Camp Unplugged To Learn Horsemanship, Study Nature & More

WOW! Camp Unplugged will be offering its 5th season of summer camp for local children. Our day camp for boys and girls aged 8-12, focuses on developing each camper’s curiosity, self-esteem, problem solving, and communication skills. We offer a full week of learning about horses and donkeys, how to be safe in their presence, and community building with each other and another species. Each camper is responsible for taking care of their “special horse” with grooming, daily feeding and clean up. Our days are filled with horse activities, art projects, journal writing, and learning fun things about nature.

Our goal is to help kids “unplug” from their phones and devices… And “plug” into the natural world around them. Scientists and Professors alike, including Colorado’s own Dr. Temple Grandin, CSU, stress the necessity for children to balance their abundant technology skills with an equally strong acquaintance with all of nature: plants, animals, soil, rivers, trees, etc. Thankfully this theory aligns with our passion: Life on this Beautiful Planet.

Here is what our campers and their parents had to say about their experience:

“My boys had a great time at camp. They learned compassion towards animals and nature. They got to be up close with animals that they don’t normally get to see. This was such a great experience for them that I am definitely having them sign up for camp next year. They don’t get to experience this anywhere else.”

“I would like to say thank you for bringing Camp Unplugged to the town of Platteville. My daughter learned a lot from the experience. She has learned how to take care of animals as well as to be understanding of their feelings. The experience will follow her through life. She is looking forward to next summer. As a parent I am looking forward to more programs for children in Platteville with animals and nature. Thank You!”
