When do I DROP OFF my camper?

Plan to arrive at the farm between 2:00 and 4:00 pm on the Sunday of your camper’s session. Drive to the Lodge, where staff are waiting to greet you.  The farm is closed until 2 pm that Sunday, so you should plan your travel accordingly.

What do we do when we arrive?

  1. Check your camper in at the registration desk located on the back porch of the Lodge and complete any remaining paperwork.
  2.  Room assignments and horse matches are posted on the main beam in the lodge.
  3. If your child has medications, give them to our camp nurse, who will also be waiting to assist you on the back porch of the lodge and do a lice check.
  4. Bring your camper’s “stuff” into her room and help her settle in.
  5. Visit your camper’s horse match.
  6. Plan to leave by 4:00 pm so that your camper can begin to settle in.

What is the best way for me to communicate with my camper while at Pony Farm Summer Camp?

  1. E-mails are the best way to be in touch with staff or your camper during camp.  The camper e-mail address is: camp@touchstone-farm.org.  We check, print, and deliver any e-mails to the camper’s room’s mailbox every day.  Staff are committed to checking e-mail before 11:00am each day and once more before the evening is through.
  2. Feel free to mail letters or send packages as well to your camper.
