Yes, you get to choose the three activities that you will do each day for the whole week. Your cabin group will decide what you’d like to do for cabin time each day. Then in the evening we’ll have great activities planned for you.
Campers choose 3 skill-building activities to participate in each day. The listing below represents a sampling of the activities that may be offered during the season. There may be additional activities available depending on staff availability.
Note: An additional activity fee is required for the Horse activity. Register early, spaces are limited. (Grade 3+)
Our horse programs have been developed for kids from beginner to advanced, using a 5 level system. Campers will learn important safety rules and how to ride and care for horses in the early levels. As they advance through the levels, campers continue to review the safety rules and work on improving their riding skills, progressively advancing in skills. For each level, they must pass both a skills test and a written exam to move to the next level. Campers typically spend about 2 summers at each level. New campers with previous riding are initially placed in the first level until our staff is able to assess their safety knowledge and riding skills. Helmets are provided. Campers MUST bring hard-soled shoes (preferably boots) and long pants to be able to participate in this activity.
