In the summer of 2017, Learning Animals will organize an International Horse Camp. This Summer Camp Experience will be open for Learning Animals partecipants only, as it will bring an indepth practice experience and a theory and practical understanding of the concept of Animality, and is based on the Learning Animals socio-cognitive model in applied zooanthropology.

A unique possibility to share, in an international dimension, the values of Learning Animals in an intens experience, moving on towards a new coexistence.   

The camp will be held on the 3rd - 4th and 5th of August, with a welcome and introduction in the evening of the 2nd of August and the option to partecipate as facilitator during a workshop on Sunday the 6th of August, which will be open for public. The camp-activities will mostly take place at the Learning Animals location in Italy, Piana Crixia. A part of the activities will be located near the Savona sea-side as well. If you have completed a Learning Animals education program (Learning Horse or Learning Dog) and you want to participate in this adventure, please find all the details below:
