CLEVELAND, Tenn. – Cleveland State Community College’s Continuing Education Department will be offering an Equine Science Camp this summer as a part of its summer enrichment program. The camp is scheduled two times this summer—the week of July 11-15 for 11-14 year olds and the week of July 18-22 for 15-18 year olds. The camps will be held at Tri-State Therapeutic Riding Center located at 200 Nature’s Way in McDonald, TN.
Equine Science STEM Camp is a week-long in-depth experience with horses going beyond riding, to the management practices and science behind the horse.
