School Year Camps
Weekend Camps and School Break Camps
Deerfield Farm offers weekend camps and school break camps for Seattle and the Eastside, including Redmond, Bellevue, Issaquah, Snoqualmie and North Bend. Located in rural Issaquah WA, Deerfield Farm is just minutes away from I-90 so it's convenient for any student in Seattle or the Eastside to attend one of our camps.
While Weekend Camps are only for our YRA students, children don't need to belong to the Deerfield riding program or be a current horseback riding student to attend one of our school break camps. We welcome any and all children who are interested in riding horses, nature and having fun.
During the school year, we host themed weekend overnight camps for our Young Riders Academy students from Saturday afternoon at 4 pm to Sunday morning at 9 am. Your child will spend three hours in the barn riding, playing games and learning something new.
We then move up to the log house where we eat healthy food, play games and more. Deerfield provides comfortable bunk beds, clean sheets and lots of fun for our students.
While not offered every month, weekend camps are held throughout the school year. Flyers for new overnights are emailed and posted in the barn so be on the lookout for upcoming dates!
Please understand we have only 10 spots, many of which are reserved. Please check with us for availability and reserve your spot today by filling out our contact form.
School Break Camps
Our School Break Camps are appropriate for children of all ages and experience levels. Staying overnight is optional and the age requirement is 8-18 for overnights. Drop off is on Tuesday at 9 am with pick-ups scheduled on Thursdays at 1 pm.
Meals include breakfast on Wednesday and Thursday and lunch and dinner on Tuesday and Wednesday.
Our daily schedule includes barn time along with incorporating a practice of mindfulness. Our mission is to create positive habits that will support our campers in living a successful and fulfilling life! These students will be challenged to grow in their daily habits as well as in the riding arena.
All families hoping to register for the overnight experience will be asked to complete a phone interview if they have not spent the night at our farm before!
