Our Mission/How we are involved with horses:
The Painted Turtle's mission is to provide a year-round, life-changing environment and authentic camp experience for children with chronic and life-threatening illnesses. The Painted Turtle supports children's medical needs, inspires them to reach beyond their illnesses, and provides care, education, and respite for their families. All campers and families attend completely free of charge.
Equestrian is one of our 16 program areas. Our therapeutic riding program provides campers with a safe, nurturing environment where they learn about horses, experience riding, and promote an independence and self-awareness that will last a lifetime.
Our organization conducts Equine Assisted Services (EAS) in accordance with the EQUUS Foundation Guidelines on Qualifications of Organizations Conducting Equine-Assisted Services (EAS)
