I took part in a New Leaf Camp Day last summer with my daughters, one of whom has ASD. From the moment we arrived, I was overwhelmed by how welcome we were made to feel, how safe the space was and how much freedom the girls were given over their choice of activities. I chose the camp day primarily as a bonding activity for the girls and it was lovely to see my younger ASD girl introducing her older sister to the horses, showing her how to groom and giving her important safety tips such as avoiding walking behind them! This role reversal and her being in charge isn’t something we see a lot so seeing that confidence drawn out of her in such a short space of time was amazing.


We also loved the range of activities - although one of my girls loves horses, the other is much more diverse. She enjoyed the opportunity to try shooting and proved to be a crack shot! They both enjoyed the mud kitchen, forest area and all the smaller animals to handle. Finn and Pickle also got thoroughly painted. The fact both girls could choose activities independently of each other meant no one got bored and everyone’s needs were met at all points of the afternoon so no meltdowns. We’ve already booked our next camp day and are very much looking forward to visiting all the wonderful staff, volunteers and animals at New Leaf!
