At SOOFA Ranch, we believe in the power of equine-assisted activities to transform lives. Our summer camps are designed to promote youth development and mental health, offering kids a unique opportunity to build confidence, learn new skills, and connect with nature through horseback riding. Each summer, we witness incredible stories of personal growth and happiness, and this year, we're excited to announce the SOOFA Ranch Summer Camp Scholarship, making our camp more accessible to deserving children.

Last summer, our camp was filled with laughter, learning, and unforgettable experiences. Children from various backgrounds came together to enjoy the outdoors, form new friendships, and discover the joys of horseback riding. One camper, Michael, shared how the camp helped him overcome his shyness and make new friends. Another camper, London, expressed her newfound confidence and love for horses, which helped her manage her anxiety better. These stories are just a glimpse of the positive impact our camp has on young minds.

Announcing the SOOFA Ranch Summer Camp Scholarship

We're thrilled to offer the SOOFA Ranch Summer Camp Scholarship for the upcoming summer. This partial scholarship reduces the camp fee to $175 from the full rate of $375. The scholarship includes a $100 fee per week, a $25 deposit, and $50 for two camp t-shirts. This initiative aims to make our camp accessible to more children, particularly those attending Georgia Title I schools. We believe every child should have the chance to benefit from the unique experiences and personal growth opportunities our camp provides.

To be eligible for the SOOFA Ranch Summer Camp Scholarship, campers must attend a Georgia Title I school and be at least 9 years old by June 1st. Parents or guardians must agree to provide daily transportation to and from the camp. If awarded the scholarship, a $25 nonrefundable deposit is required to secure the reservation, along with the purchase of two camp t-shirts at $25 each. The application deadline is Thursday, May 23, 2024, and all required documents must be submitted by this date.

Our summer camp offers numerous benefits for children's mental and physical well-being. Through equine-assisted activities, campers develop essential life skills such as responsibility, teamwork, and empathy. The connection with horses and the natural environment promotes emotional healing and reduces stress. Additionally, campers participate in various activities that enhance their social skills and build lasting friendships. The holistic approach of our program ensures that each child leaves with a sense of accomplishment and improved self-esteem.
