- Check at the registration desk to complete any remaining paperwork, if necessary. Camp photo sign-up will also occur during registration.
- If your child has medications, hand them in to the camp nurse, who will be at the registration desk. Please make sure her medications are labeled and are all accounted for on her health forms.
- Bring your camper’s belongings to her room. If she wishes, you are most welcome to help her unpack, make her bed, etc.

Camper Pick Up
When do I PICK UP my camper?
Closing Day of each camp session is exciting and busy and bittersweet. We’ve developed a routine that gets your camper ready to show you what she’s learned as well as packed up to head home with you.
Please arrive on the Closing Day of your child’s session at between 10:30 am – 10:45 am at BARBARA C HARRIS CENTER. (no early birds, please). We need to shuttle the kids around and get things done at the barn to get ready for you.
- Gather your camper’s belongings (as she will already be at the farm) and load your vehicle
- When you arrive to the farm, staff and your daughter will greet you! She will then give you a tour of the farm, to meet her horse, meet the other animals, and all her friends.
- Ice cream will be served as a last yummy treat! There will be tents set up in case of rain.
You can plan to leave by 12:30 (ish) p.m., depending on how long it takes for your daughter to say goodbye to the staff, her friends, and, of course, her pony!!
While At Camp
What is the best way for me to communicate with my camper while at Pony Farm Summer Camp?
- E-mails are the best way to be in touch with staff or your camper during camp. The camper e-mail address is: firstname.lastname@example.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.
- Feel free to mail letters or send packages as well to your camper, but please make sure the letters and/or packages arrive during the 4 day camp week.
Can I reach my camper by phone?
- The answer is, you can not. Always feel free to call the office phone: 603-654-8564 and you can leave a message which we will check for often.
- Campers are not allowed to have cell phones at camp.
- In case of illness or injury to your camper – we will get in touch with you to let you know.
How do I get regular updates on my camper during their session?
- We post regular updates about camp activities on our Instagram @ponyfarmsummercamp
- We also post on the farm’s two Facebook pages: www.facebook.com/ponyfarmsummercamp and www.facebook.com/TouchstoneFarm11
- We DISCOURAGE the use of electronics and keeping campers “unplugged” while at camp. We ENCOURAGE connections with each other, the horses, the outdoors and nature!
