Seawinds hosts several 3-day weekend and a few 7-day training camps throughout the summer. Some camps are especially for total beginner horsearchers while others are designed for experiences riders who wish to further develop their horsearchery skills on our experienced archery horses. A few camps are reserved specifically for kids and their parents.
Students usually camp onsite, immersed fully in the setting of the forests, pastures, seaside, and horses--primal surroundings for a transformative training experience. Being on the Bay of Fundy we have perfect summer temperatures when it's too hot for fun elsewhere, and very few flies!
A typical camp day starts with breakfast served at 7 am and our morning briefing at 8 am. We often saddle the horses and train on the track in the mornings and again in the late afternoons. If it does get too hot to train, we often just do some Whim Hoff breathing and jump in the salty ocean for an hour to revivalist our bodies and our souls--we're never too hot after that. Sometimes the horses swim with us! Interpretative nature hikes and trailrides to some of the local waterfalls are common and we daily send a contingent to the garden for our next meals. Each night we gather at the fire to exchange our knowledge and share our stories from the day. And there is always someone with talents to bless us with their songs!
