REINS is a new, therapeutic horseback riding program at Camp Ewalu for youth ages 8-14 with developmental, mental, or emotional challenges. Each camper will be assigned a horse for the weekend to learn basic horsemanship and to ride the camp trails. There will be time for Bible studies, worship, games, and campfires. The goals of this program are to provide a unique platform for expression, to discover new talents and skills, and to improve the overall quality of life. REINS will provide a safe environment for your child with experienced, qualified professionals.

A camp for children who have experienced loss; designed to provide a safe environment for children to openly express feelings surrounding their loss. Campers will also receive comfort from those who have gone through similar experiences, and of course, have fun! Registration is open for children entering 3rd grade to children entering 12th grade.
Activities will be both therapeutic and enjoyable. Children will be encouraged to participate only to the level they feel comfortable. This is because we recognize that just as each loss is unique, so is each individual's grieving experience. There will be arts and crafts and other activities to honor and remember loved ones. There will also be campfires and songs, and of course, there will be time for the pool, the zip line, and the climbing tower!
Along the way, campers will have counselors with them who have experienced significant loss themselves. These counselors are prepared to openly share their experiences, and to offer their support when necessary.
