Programs

Imagine going to the pasture to bring in your horse, grooming and saddling him, riding him through sunlit fields and wooded trails.

Then spending your afternoon jumping on the trampolines and having a picnic at the Outback. You can try your hand at tennis, camp crafts, boating on Lake Lorely, bottle feeding a new calf and/or baby goat. Also, wonderful farm food, swimming in the beautiful pool that is heated and shaped liked a horse head, girl talk in the bunk house after lights out and hikes along the wooded bank of the river.

Camp Fires & Cookouts

We open and close each session with a camp wide campfire and ceremonies. Campers have cabin sleep outs and campfires during their session where they can sit around the fire and make s’mores of course. In the 2 week session the campers who are eligible to be staff celebrate their final year as campers by going on their own trail ride sleep out adventure with their staff. They spend one night and two meals over the camp fire where they set up camp, care for their horses, and spend the night under the stars.

Small Animals

Typical Day at Camp

Each day is packed with activities. We believe it is important for you to have a balance of scheduled activities or lessons and free play time. Our daily schedule incorporates both.

Each morning the whole camp meets for flag and morning announcements. Then we break into our riding groups and go to the barn and/or breakfast. We eat breakfast with our riding groups. The group who ate first then tacks up their horses and has their mounted lessons first while the other ½ of the girls have ground lessons, vaulting and barn chores. We switch at 10:30. Every morning we have a 1 ½ hour riding lesson.

After morning lessons we go to our cabins and wash up quickly and get ready for lunch. We eat lunch with our cabin groups. After lunch we have a state mandated 1 hour rest period. You do have to be in your bunks but you can read or do a quiet activity you do not have to sleep.

Free Time is at 2:00. All the activities are staffed and you can choose what you want to do. That means you can go to the pool every afternoon for the whole afternoon, you may choose the barn to hang out with the horses, or you may want to try to stop by all the activities but you get to make the choices. Check out the programs sections to see more about all the activities.

Before dinner the whole camp gathers to take down the flag.

After dinner we have a camp wide night activity which is an organized cabin activity or game.

We grab a snack at the treat store and then head back to the bunkhouse to get ready for bed.
