Freeport Park District upcoming events
Your child will enjoy a fun-filled week with horses at the Freeport Park District’s Horse Camp, where children will interact with horses as well as other children. Campers will ride each day, bathe and groom a horse, play games, and make a craft to take home. At completion of camp, campers will get to paint on a real horse! Helmets must be worn while riding; a limited number are available. Bicycle helmets are acceptable for use while riding. Campers need to wear long pants and closed-toe shoes each day. Bring a change of clothes and a snack for each day of camp.
