Gratitude, fun & horses

Seattle Summer Horse Camps

Located just minutes away from I-90, Deerfield Farm Summer Camps are the perfect Seattle area camps filled with gratitude, fun and horses!

At our summer camp, campers will be immersed in nature, connect with our incredible horses and highly trained staff, develop riding and mindfulness skills, and of course have fun! To give kids more riding time, we have reduced the size of our 2024 camp groups.

Please note that this year we have a new Adult Mini Camp that's appropriate for any adult with some horse experience. Campers don't need to be a current Deerfield student to attend as we welcome all children and adults who are interested in riding horses and nature.

testimonial

Janine says...

“My daughter had been doing summer camps at Deerfield for 6 years. She loves being at the barn and participating in this unique program every year! Campers physical experience includes daily yoga, riding lessons, learning a riding pattern, games, an education about horses, and time spent caring for the well-being of “their” horse.

Kids come away with a sense of gratitude and an appreciation of what it means to care for something (truly) larger than themselves.”
