2018 Summer Day Camp for Kids and Horses

IMPORTANT:  Our June camps are full!

Every year Summer Horse Camp is a hot ticket item! Kids will spend the week learning horsemanship and making new friends. Campers will learn how to care for horses as well as how to walk, trot, canter and trail ride. The culmination of camp is a horse show with awards for all.

  • The cost is $300 per week, with a $50 deposit at the time of registration.
  • Camp begins the first week in June and runs through the first week in August.
  • Camp hours are Monday through Thursday, 8am to 4pm and Friday from 8am until around 10 or 11 (Camp will be dismissed after the show and awards).
  • Child care will be available on Fridays after the student horse show until 4pm.
  • Bring a lunch and a water bottle with a strap each day to camp.
