Indiana University's Outdoor Center, Bradford Woods, operates 10 weeks of summer camp for people with disabilities and chronic illnesses.  They typically recruit summer interns, which has proven to be an "excellent opportunity for students" in various fields including Therapeutic Riding and other Equine related fields.  Bradford Woods partners with Agape Therapeutic Riding Center, A NARHA Premier Accredited Center to provide a barn experience for their campers. Located on a portion of Bradford Woods' 2,500 acres are an eight stall horse barn, pastures, outdoor arena, and trails. Each year they hire barn specific program staff and side walkers who help with or lead the facilitation of both mounted and unmounted activities as well as assist with the management, training and care of six to eight equines as well as a variety of other animals. They also hire a Barn Director and Assistant Director (NARHA Certified Instructor or Instructor in Training) to work closely with both Agape and the summer camp leadership team to provide the best experience possible for both campers and staff.
