Campers ages 10 through 14 were at Cottonwood Farms on Woodlawn Road this week for the Galloping Through Summer camp offered by Ken and Teri Justice. The camp is designed for youngsters to learn how to ride, as well as what it takes to care for a horse. They also participate in horse crafts, swimming and fishing on the farm.
