ArtEquisKids CIT & Summer Camps at Los Gatos Farms
NEW: ArtEquis CIT CAMP - This is a 2 week camp!!
The Counselor in Training program is available for ages 13-15 years and will include a 2 week session. The first week is only offered the week of June 8-11, from 1 pm - 5pm. and emphasizes leadership skills, creativity, team building, self-compassion and most importantly fun! During this week, CIT’s will participate in the regular camp’s activities, which give them a chance to enjoy all of the great activites that ArtEquisKids Summer Camp offers as well as fun leadership activites with their peers.
At the end of the first week’s training CIT’s will recieve an ArtEquisKids (AEK) CIT certificate of completion.
After the training week, each AEK CIT has their choice of when they would like to come back for their 2nd camp week as a CIT for ArtEquisKids Summer Camp session (June - August). This is when CIT's really put their leadership skills into action!
Note: All Approved AEK CIT’s will also be given the opportunity enroll as AEK CIT for all other weeks of ArtEquis Kids summer camps, at NO charge!
(That is 2 weeks of training and the possibility of 6 more weeks of summer camp for Approved AEK CIT’s!!!)

The mission of ArtEquisKids is to provide children an opportunity to get up close and be inspired by horses. There is more to horsemanship than riding, and discovering how horses communicate is essential.
ArtEquisKids inspires children to express their creative selves to the corners of their imagination. This is art for expression's sake.
The product at the end of this journey is freedom, confidence and accomplishment in the simple yet complex art of connecting.
ArtEquisKids Camp is:
The Art of Horsemanship Horse encounters introduce campers to the art of
communicating with horses and their magical bond with humans. They will discover the secrets of horse whispering in the behaviors and body language that horses "speak" that tell what horses are really saying! This is hands on, grooming, leading, arena work and they will watch a horse herd in action!
(No riding is involved in these sessions.)
The Art of Expression - Campers are authentic and expressive with paints, pastels, watercolors, clay, rhythm instruments, costumes and skits. It is amazing how these simple tools create incredible artistic expressions.
The result is imagination and wonderment realized!
Lunch is from 12:00p.m. to 12:45p.m. and pick up is by 1:00p.m.
Maximum of 8 participants.
This camp is small by design and fills up quickly. Book soon to reserve your spot!
**NOTE - Although ArtEquisKids Camp ends at 1:00p.m., there is an aftercare program available from 1p.m. to 5p.m. for those parents that would like it. This not a camp, but it does have its own fun activities and is offered daily for $20./hr.
