Please arrive a few minutes early on the first day of camp to fill out paperwork.

Camp hours are 9 am to 2 pm.  Aftercare is available on an as-needed basis -- please give us 24 hours notice.

The health form is linked to our website, but we will also have copies the first day of camp that you can fill out, as well as release forms.

Children should bring lunch (in an insulated bag if refrigeration is needed).  We have a water fountain but they may bring water and other drinks as desired.

Shorts may be worn, but riders must have long pants and appropriate shoes for riding.

We will do a water day but will give advance notice to make sure campers bring appropriate water clothes and dry clothes.

We will have an end-of-camp Horse Show and Pot Luck on last day of each camp and will send an information sheet and pot luck form home with campers.  Please return the pot luck form so we know what we may need to plan for.

Looking forward to seeing you guys!  Please call with any questions.

(These dates will change ONLY if the school year is lengthened due to excessive snow days.)

We have found that extending hours past 2:00 is hard on the kids!

There is a $100 registration fee (non-refundable if cancellation is after May 1) due upon sign-up by cash or check (by mail is fine).

After-care available 8:00 to 9:00 am and 2:00 to 5:00 pm if necessary ($6 an hour).  You do not have to commit to an entire week of aftercare -- it can be arranged on a daily basis as long as we have 24 hours' notice.

***Please be patient!

Trail rides fill up quickly!
