Equestrian Camp Programs
Mini Camp Horse: Ages 8 to 16 (Will return Summer 2021)
Mini Camp is the perfect choice for campers who wish to get a taste of sleep away camp without committing to the whole week! Mini camp is a traditional camp program that runs from Sunday to Tuesday. On Tuesday, campers have the option to either stay for the remainder of the week, or return home. Mini campers choose their elective activities just as traditional campers do, and participate in all the same camp-wide activities! Mini Campers are picked up on Tuesday Evening after Dinner at 7:00 PM. Dinner is at 6:30PM
Horse Lover’s Camp: Ages 7 to 16 (Day or Extended Day)
Do you love horses? Then our Horse Lover's Program is for you! This program is open to both beginner riders and experienced competitors alike. Horse campers spend the first half their day at the barn (Monday through Friday, weather permitting). Campers are evaluated on horseback on Monday mornings by our riding instructors and then paired with an appropriate horse and placed in groups based on their level of experience (not by age). Occasionally, horse changes will be made throughout the week. This program includes a daily riding lesson or mounted activity such as trail ride or games on horseback, as well as an educational barn class, and barn chores. Campers are able to learn valuable riding skills, horse care and horsemanship skills throughout their week at camp that help them to become a well-rounded horse person. The second half of the day will include a horsemanship lesson period 3 for all horse campers day and extended day. Extended day campers will have 1 period of fun traditional camp activities, which provide campers with a robust summer camp experience!
Bring Your Own Horse (BYOH): Ages 8 to 16 ( Weeks 2,3, 6 & 7 )
Bring your horse to summer camp! The BYOH week is designed for riders who own or lease their own horse or pony. Campers should be very experienced and comfortable caring for their own horse and should feel confident while riding their equine companion. Campers who bring their own horse must have received formal riding instruction and be able to (at minimum) steer, stop, walk and trot their horse independently in a group lesson setting. BYOH campers are evaluated on their horses during Monday morning riding evaluations by our riding instructors. Campers are then placed in a group lesson based on their level of experience (not by age). Campers should bring all their necessary supplies for themselves and their horses during their week-long stay at camp. This includes their tack and equipment, feed, bedding, buckets etc. Campers in this program ride twice each day (weather permitting) and participate in a daily barn class, as well as barn chores.
