    "Christie and her counselors are amazing! Your child will spend a fun filled week at on very special farm amongst the sweetest animals around. The activities are unique and creative. Making paper mache pinatas, making yummy quesadillas on the grill, taking care of the animals, walking Arthur and Ernie the worlds cutest miniature donkeys. Your child will no doubt love to be a cowboy or cowgirl for a week. Ours certainly did! "

    "My granddaughter has never had so much fun! She learned so much at this one week camp and just loved the animals plus being able to care for them was a plus! I must say the Christie and her staff go above and beyond for the kids and their families. I would recommend this camp to anyone who may be interested in sending their child to an animal camp. For my granddaughter, being able to hang out with Ernie and Arthur the donkeys and all of the other beautiful animals there really did make her experience Heaven on Earth! Thank you so much for providing her with such a great week!"

    "This camp is amazing! My 8 year old daughter was signed up for the first week and begged to be signed up for the second week. Christie is a hands on owner who teaches each child farm etiquette, confidence and how to take care of animals. It's the cleanest barn I have ever seen! If you have a child who loves animals it's worth checking out, my daughter will be at her camps next year...or hopefully she will have a camp sooner."
