The students get to work and enjoy a range of animals including miniature ponies, larger horses, cows, sheep and dogs. In addition the farm location gives us space to do other activities like sporting events, tent/camp making, photography.  Also, inside the barn is great for getting out of any bad weather and an ideal space for being creative with art and crafts.

The key objective is learning through fun. We have lots of laughs and jokes, build strong, trusting connections with the animals and make lots of new friends.

Our team of leaders work in small groups with the students and individually, and we love getting to know them all.
