Mini Boot Camp 


Mini Boot Camp will be back possibly in 2025. Contact us to be added to our mailing list for our intensive 4-day workshop that teaches you the theory of our working minis - Equine Guided Interactions (EGI) and all about starting up and successfully running/maintaining a 501c3 non-profit. We also assist you in the paperwork for Form 1023 online and State registration. Email to receive application and tuition costs for Mini Boot Camp and to reserve your spot today! No more than 8 applicants at any Boot Camp which allows plenty of Hands-On time for everyone!This session is for those who want to do the full package; learning to work with their minis in their communities using our technique of Equine Guided Interactions (EGI), Form 1023 assistance (501c3 paperwork), learn about everything you need to know to keep your non-profit up and running – fundraising, grants, scheduling, program development, media, social media, website, insurance, volunteers and keeping them motivated and much more. Take home a workbook full of tried and tested forms, letters, helpful information, and a memory stick too! This Camp also gives lifetime support to your non-profit.  


All Applications will be reviewed by our Board of Directors. If you have been working with your minis in the community for years - this is probably not the Mini-Camp for you.  This Mini Boot Camp is designed for those wanting to start-up a 501c3 and how to maintain and keep it running year after year and for learning about working with your mini/s in the community.  Minis and Friends have their own technique called "Equine Guided Interactions" which we are working on this to become standardized.
