Stoneleigh-Burnham School (SBS) is excited to announce in-person day and residential summer camps for equestrians, performing artists, debaters and public speakers ages 8-18! SBS’s signature summer programs are hosted by expert faculty on their beautiful 100-acre campus in Greenfield. The programs emphasize the development of confidence, the acquisition of skills, and the discovery of new talents.
SBS’s Summer Camps begin June 20, 2021 and include Speak Up I, an introduction to debate & public speaking for girls ages 10-13; Speak Up II, an advanced program for girls ages 13-18 with experience in debate & public speaking; Performing Arts Camp, a coed program for students ages 10-18 with an interest in dancing, singing and acting; and the premier Bonnie Castle Riding Camp, a riding program for girls ages 8-16 for all skill levels. The SBS Equestrian Center is also offering a coed Horsemanship Day Camp for novice and beginner riders ages 7-12.
New this year is the Bonnie Castle Riding Camp’s unique learning experience with the British Horse Society’s (BHS) Challenge Awards. SBS is the only secondary school in the United States to offer the BHS curriculum. The Challenge Awards allow campers to work at their own pace while improving their knowledge of horse care and riding. They also help campers set goals in a non-competitive, progressive, and rewarding program.
SBS Summer Program Director Heidi Gebo has been directing youth camps throughout the Pioneer Valley for 20 years. “It’s important for us to be able to offer a diverse array of camp options for students and give families multiple options to help accommodate their work schedules,” said Heidi.
Parents and guardians will be able to choose between three choices of camp structure: a day camp schedule from 8am-4pm that includes lunch, an extended day camp schedule from 8am-8pm that includes lunch and dinner, or the weekly residential camp option. There are discounts available for returning families, families who register more than one child, or those who sign up for multiple weeks. Financial assistance for day campers may also be available to those who qualify. Early bird registration is now open through February 18.
