CAMP FACILITIES: Our riding camp has been in operation since 1956 and in 2015 we added our mini farm program for the non-riding girls who love animals.

Housing is in cabins with 3-6 other girls of the same age.

Day campers are assigned a cabin to have a place to keep their things and to change.

Swimming and boating every afternoon in our own lake and arts and crafts are camp favorites.
Our Dining Hall, Health Center, Overlook Program Building, Craft Pavilion, Archery Range, Waterfront, Horse Pond, Riding and Hiking Trails, Canteen, Tennis Court, Basketball Court, and two Shower Houses provide great spaces for fun and learning!

CAMP PROGRAM INFO: SJ Farm Camp was created in 2015 as part of SJ Riding Camp in order to offer girls who love animals, but are not riders, a well-rounded summer camp option.

Some of our farm campers choose to purchase a riding lesson to try it out.

SJ is accredited by the American Camp Association (ACA), licensed and inspected by the State of CT Office of Early Childhood (OEC) and the Dining Hall/Kitchen are inspected and licensed by the local area health department.

Owned and operated since 1956 by the Haines family. Owner/Exec. Director Pat Haines, Directors Julie Morton and Alexandra Thomas, and Maintainer Terry Thomas all live onsite.
