Our Mission

Camelot’s mission is to improve the quality of life for children and adults with disabilities through programs of horsemanship and outdoor education, which develop self-worth, independence, and active participation in the community.

What We Do

Since its inception in 1980, Camelot has offered one-on-one education, with instruction tailored to the individual needs of our students. Camelot specializes in serving riders with physical disabilities, and our students learn riding, driving, grooming, training, vet care, and stable management.

Camelot Ranch is located on 14.25 acres of the Sonoran Desert in the Pinnacle Peak area of Arizona. Our barrier-free, wheelchair-accessible facility makes it possible for students to saddle, ride, and groom our horses with minimal help.

The Camelot philosophy is that everyone faces personal dragons, yet every person is a potential dragon-slayer. The most intimidating obstacles can be vanquished with love and courage. Camelot provides the opportunity and support to succeed.

Non-Discrimination Policy

Camelot does not and shall not discriminate on the basis of race, color, religion, gender, age, national origin, disability, marital status, sexual orientation, or military status, in any of its activities or operations. These activities include, but are not limited to, hiring and firing of staff, selection of volunteers and vendors, and provision of services. We are committed to providing an inclusive and welcoming environment for all members of our staff, students, volunteers and vendors.
