What We Do
Camp Casey brings healing and happiness to children with cancer, rare blood disorders, and other life-threatening illnesses in Michigan by providing cost-free, mobile horseback riding programs. Yeehaw!
Our organization was founded in 2004 in memory of Casey Foote, a 12-year old horseback rider who passed away from bone and brain cancer. Since her passing, Casey’s legacy has lived on through Camp Casey’s programs and, thus, has helped spread the healing power of horses to thousands of sick children in Michigan.
Camp Casey delivers happiness on horseback through four cost-free programs: Horsey House Calls, Cowboy Camp Outs, Lone Star Getaways, and Outlaw Outings. Its signature program, Horsey House Calls, surprise sick children with a knock on their door, a horse on their doorstep, and an afternoon of fun, camp-related activities - including horseback riding throughout their neighborhood!
