Vermont camp is more than horses; it's a new path

STARKSBORO, Vt. (AP) A former Vermont lawmaker is running a summer program designed to help children learn important life lessons by working on the farm.

The dozen or so kids who go to Sentinel Farms frequently start the day by doing farm chores before getting to ride the horses.

The program is run by the nonprofit group Unbound Grace. Some of the children come from families dealing with alcohol or drugs. Others have lost parents or friends to suicide and some have been tormented in school, all scars that can last a lifetime.

Unbound Grace President Kerry Kurt says it's an important resource as the state tries to break the grip that heroin and other opiate drugs have on so many. The goal is to put the children on a different path.
