One of the goals of the Jim and Juli Boehim Foundation is to enrich the lives of children in Central New York. They provide grants to 501c3 organizations that share this goal. Sunshine Horses volunteer and trainer Lauren Kuss applied for a grant from the Boeheim Foundation to hold a summer camp at our farm. This summer camp would be for kids from urban areas where interaction with horses was unlikely.
Sunshine Horses was awarded a grant and the camp was held at our farm in August. The camp was free of charge to all participants. Lauren and her team of volunteers donated their time and the grant covered the costs for everything else.
Sunshine's first ever summer camp was held in July. Lauren and her team also organized and ran this camp. Both camps were a huge success. We hope that this is the first of many. We couldn't do what we do without volunteers like Lauren and her team and the support of community organizations like the Jim and Juli Boeheim Foundation.
