Summer Camps run weekly throughout the summer Monday through Friday from 9:00 am to 1:00 pm. EARLY REGISTRATION IS IMPORTANT TO ENSURE APPROPRIATE COMRADES. Group size is 3-6 students per weekly session (or 12 students grouped as 6 pairs). "Knee-Highs" will have exclusive helpers. Campers assist with feeding, stable chores/management, grooming, riding, bathing, cleaning their equipment, and learning as much as they can about all aspects of GOOD HORSEMANSHIP. Everyone has FUN and LEARNS a lot, too! The cost is $175/week for our regular students and $210/week for all others. See our Application for Full-Week Camp dates.
NEW! Mini-Camps during Easter Break and Summer, particularly Holiday Weeks:
The same great fun as above, and still 9:00 am to 1:00 pm, but not a full week. You may sign up for one, two, or all days. The cost is $35/day for regular students and $42/day for newcomers. These camps are perfect for those with busy weekend schedules (no Mondays or Fridays), and also for newcomers who may want to try it for a day or two before they commit to a full week later in the Summer. See our Application for Mini-Camp dates.
SPECIAL INFORMATION FOR CAMPERS
Campers are expected to wear long pants, a hard-soled shoe with a heel, and an appropriate safety helmet. (Let us know if you don't have your own--we can help!) Campers should pack their own snacks, beverages, and lunches in a cooler.
Campers should be dropped off and picked up ON TIME with no tag-a-longs and positively no dogs. (Remember, it's SAFETY FIRST!) By special arrangement, campers may come earlier and/or stay later with an additional fee of $10/hour.
If you have your own horse or pony, you are welcome to bring him/her to camp. If you trailer in and out daily, there is no extra charge. If you want to board your horse or pony at the stables for the week of camp, the charge is $20/day. Please bring your own grain, hay, Equitrol or equivalent, fly spray, etc. Your horse/pony must have a negative Coggins and be UTD on vaccinations and dewormings.
We accept cash or personal check. As with all our activities, a Liability Release is required.
Full-Week Camps: Depending on the group, competitions sometimes are held on Thursdays and Awards presented on Fridays at 12:00 noon. Parents are invited for the Awards.
Mini-Camps: Though no official competition may be held, EVERYONE goes home with at least one Blue Ribbon for something they have done well, even if they come only for one day!
SPACE IS LIMITED --- RESERVE EARLY!
