Registration will open for 2024 camper sessions on November 15th, Alumni Weekend will open on November 29, Mother Daughter registration will open on January 17, and Family Weekend registration will open on January 31st . You can register online here.
We utilize our waitlist to fill spaces when other campers cancel their reservations. We will be in touch with you if a space becomes available. We try to contact you phone and email to let you know of the availability. If we do not receive a response within a week, we will have to move on down the list. We continue to fill spaces through June.
Campers can be registered for a session and waitlisted for another.
Our session dates can be found here. Campers can stay for multiple sessions, and stay with us overnight between sessions, with the exception of Session 2 to Session 3, Session 5 to Session 6, and Starter Camp to Mother Daughter.
Tuition fees and discount information can be found here.
We take girls 6-15; if you turn 15 before June 1st then you are eligible to start our CIT program the next year.
Campers with food allergies or dietary issues should contact the food service manager at least two week in advance to ensure there is a plan in place to accommodate the campers needs. We provide a vegetarian option and non-dairy milk. Campers can request gluten-free substitutions in advance. We do not prepare substitutions until requested in an effort to save on food waste. Please contact our office about this.
Please make sure the medicine comes with its prescription from the doctor and its original dosage directions. All OTC medications must come with dosage instructions as well (i.e. in their original packaging). All medicine must be kept in the infirmary with our health officers.
All medications your camper plans on taking while at camp must be listed on the online Health History Form. If you have already submitted the Health History form but need to make changes, please contact the office.
Riding lessons are every morning, for one hour and thirty minutes. All riding lessons are Western riding. First year campers will fill out a First Year Rider Evaluation before they arrive at camp, and we will match them to a group according to the information on that. We tend to start on the safe side and start them in a more beginner group if we can’t decide, but there is always the opportunity to move groups during sessions if we believe they are strong enough to move up. The counselors evaluate their riders at the end of each session, so we know what group to put them in next year. Each session has riders that range from beginners to advance, and horses to suit each level.
Campers are unable to do laundry during their session, please pack enough for a full session. We offer laundry services to stayovers, this will be done on horseshow day between sessions, so please pack enough clothing to last them a full session. The laundry will be charged to your treat store account.
Mail is handed out every lunch time, and put on their cabin table, with the exception of Sunday, where there is no mail. You can either send mail, or bring it on incoming day where there will be a mail drop station. All mail must be labelled with your campers name, cabin and the date you would like it delivered. Items must be packaged and sealed as if they were being delivered by the postal
service. We will not accept boxes, gift bags, and unsealed bags.
During the winter, our horses either stay on property and are cared for here, or they go home with people. We offer a program where you can take our horses home over the winter. Please contact us for further information on this; we will put you in touch with our equine manager to find a suitable horse and ensure he is not already going home. You must arrange your own transportation for the horse to and from camp, and be able to provide care and shelter for the duration of his stay with you. Horses are great fun, but also expensive and require a lot of time and care, please consider this decision carefully before you make a commitment to take a horse home.
Many of our horses go home to great homes over the winter and we are glad you are interested in taking one home; please contact us for further information on this, we will put you in touch with our equine manager to find a suitable horse and ensure he is not already going home.

Incoming day starts at 2.30 and runs until 4.00, with campers being assigned specific check-in times in advance. The Wednesday prior to your campers session, we will send you an email with your camper’s cabin and assigned check-in time. Check-in and arrival health screenings will take place in your car via a drive-thru style.
Yes, we can arrange a pick up as long as it is within a certain window. There is a cost of $200 per camper for this. Campers can only be picked up between 4pm and 7pm the Saturday before their check-in or 8am and 12pm on the Sunday they are due to arrive at camp, and can only be dropped off on the day of their horseshow between 4pm and 7pm. Any drop offs or pick-ups out with these windows will be an extra $100. Please contact our office to arrange this.
Horse show starts at 10:00 am and usually ends around 12:00 pm. Check out is open outside the treat store starting at 10 am.
Similar to incoming day, campers have assigned horse show times. Families will be provided their arrival time the Wednesday prior to the show. All campers will participate in the Halftime Show.Please arrive on time for your assigned window. Camper will start the riding demonstration on time and cannot repeat the performance. Please allow yourself time to park and walk to the riding area.
Treat store is open during free time and also after night activity, each time your camper comes through they can get one drink and one snack. Clothing and other larger items may only be bought if parents/guardians indicate campers can purchase these items or at horse show. The bill needs to be paid in either cash or check. There is no need for your camper to bring any cash to camp. You can also shop the BR General Store online by clicking here.
You can get a BR ring only by filling out a ring list (find the form here) or at the end of your first summer as a counselor. Ring lists must be submitted before your camper arrives for their session.
