It’s official – the annual letter has been sent out! Finally, one big step closer to summer camp! Tom worked hard to get the letter done and we are anticipating getting applications in the mail soon. 🙂 A main portion of the letter was dedicated to asking our camp families for help in getting the word out about Road’s End Farm Horsemanship Camp. We are not sure why the number of inquiries are smaller than previous years, but we are hoping to share our camp program with a few more new campers this year than we did last year. If you know if anyone who may be interested in an all girls summer horse camp, please let them know about us and we will be happy to chat on the phone or give a tour to an interested family.


As we look forward to summer and think about hiring our staff, we are reading through international counselor applications and beginning to call some lovely young women from overseas. Last year, we had counselors from England, Australia, New Zealand, and Ireland. These counselors bring invaluable experience to Road’s End Farm and the campers each year love hearing about their different places of origin. The Camp would not function without the wonderful staff members we find each year, and we are so fortunate to find such compassionate and kind women that come to the end of Jackson Hill Road.


We are spending a good amount of our time cleaning up the farm before the ground unfreezes and becomes too soft for the tractors. We are cleaning brush out of Peacock Park, the pines in Wheelocks, and in the trees next to the Cape Cod House. Similar to work duty during summer camp, we haul the brush onto the trailer, drive to the bonfire, dump the load, and begin again! Doing brush is one of our favorite jobs. In line with the philosophies here, we love getting our hands dirty and doing some springtime cleaning of the farm.
