Life On The Ranch

At Driftwood, the success of each day is in the hands of our students. A typical day may include feeding the horses at sunrise, planning and cooking the meals, a trail ride through the farms and forests of southern New Hampshire and a stop at a local swimming hole. Other activities range from hiking and biking, rock climbing, basketball, baseball, music, acting and songwriting. Our students often design and teach their own activities. Our small size is our great asset. It allows us to create a self-sustaining community where creativity, responsibility, respect and fun reign supreme. A campfire of poems, songs and discussion brings each day to a close.

Our horsemanship program offers an experience that transcends the art of communication. Each guest at Driftwood will have the unique opportunity to interact with a horse and learn the true meaning of selflessness.

Driftwood guests sleep in our new, state-of-the-art yurts. These innovative structures accommodate modern conveniences yet remain elegantly rustic. Each yurt can comfortably sleep 6 to 8 people and combines a beautiful wood frame with durable, electronically bonded architectural fabric to provide a comfortable and secure camp experience.
