HOPEFOAL SUMMER INTENSIVE

DSC_0844

The HopeFoal Project™ is designed to address issues of low self-esteem, depression and suicidal ideation in adolescents who live in our community.

These at-risk youth are paired with rescued foals, newly separated from their mothers, to provide a unique opportunity for personal growth. Giving the young adults the responsibility of “gentling and handling” the foals, who have had a rough start in life and need great amounts of love and kindness, helps provide them with a reason to live, thrive, and mature. Through this unique partnership, adolescents from the HopeFoal Project™ can learn to embrace life once again, while the foals flourish from their newfound trust in humans. This camp is for teens of any gender ages 14-17 years old.

Dates: July 9-12, 2017
