2017 Summer Camp Schedule

Our objective for the summer day camps is to enable children to explore the fun experience of horses, while encouraging resilience, emotional control, and positive attitudes towards new challenges. We use a variety of activities on and off horse including games, crafts, and horse care.

All campers are required to have:

  • long pants for riding (stretchy preferred)
  • running shoes
  • snack and water bottle
  • change of clothes for off-horse activities

PLEASE NOTE: No sandals, crocs or other open-toed footwear.

PLEASE BE ADVISED THAT THE MAJORITY OF OUR SUMMER CAMPS ARE FULL WITH ONLY A COUPLE OF SPOTS AVAILABLE. SPOTS ARE AVAILABLE IN WEDNESDAY EVENING OR SATURDAY LESSON PROGRAMS. CONTACT: Lisa or Jane 780-435-3597 to inquire.
