HORSE/EQUINE
CAMP

Equine campers get the unique experience of learning about and working with horses during their week at camp. Each camper works to develop the skills to safely tie, groom, saddle, bridle, mount, and ride a horse both in the arena and out on the trail. Campers will also practice controlling their horse at a walk and trot, as well as learn the different trot positions. Every camper and their horse will develop a unique partnership, as they further understand his/her nature and develop better balance throughout the week. 

SUMMER 2021 REGISTRATION NOW OPEN 

We require that every camper wear a helmet when riding a horse. All of our wranglers are extensively trained in horse safety and our full-time Horse Barn Manager is responsible for overseeing everything from trail rides to horse and barn maintenance.

Camp counselors play a distinct role in the summer camp setting. They are the leaders. Mentors. Mediators. Parents-away-from-home. And they can be some of the most influential people in a young person’s life.

Whether it’s teaching kids how to make friendship bracelets, playing in the pool with hundreds of wild campers, or having deep conversations, camp counselors get to share their hearts of gold with  children who never forget them.
