Just 30 campers are accepted each summer at New Meadow. Our small size means campers can participate in a wide range of activities on and off the farm. There's a counselor for every five campers, allowing for a high level of personal instruction. And our size enhances the family atmosphere and camaraderie.
Each day campers take lessons in the ring or the field, and can choose from individual and team sports, hiking, biking, swimming, arts and crafts and more. Weekends and evenings include competing in horse shows, riding on trails or taking field trips.
We also offer a 2-year Counselor-in-Training program for girls who have completed 10th grade and have attended our camp for two summers.
