Located in beautiful Casco Bay on Peaks Island, Horse Island Camp is an active day camp where kindness and animal appreciation is emphasized. Accessible by the Casco Bay Lines ferry in Portland, children ages 3 and up take a morning boat ride out to reach the island. Once there, the swimming, fort exploration, games, and crafts. Activities at Horse Island Camp are voted on daily by the campers and staff which makes the children feel very involved in their own activities! Every year our repeat campers with developed skills take on "honorary aide roles" around the camp. They begin to help the younger campers in showing them how to groom and saddle up the horses. The horses in turn become aquainted with the new campers and feel the kindness and tender loving care provided to them. Doing this new friendships between campers.
