trail rideOur horseback riding program is offered for an extra fee of $45 - one week overnight campers, $90 -two week overnight campers

(Day Campers ride Mondays only-no extra fee). 

Overnight campers who choose horseback riding are divided into groups based on riding ability. They will learn basic grooming, safety on & around horses and general care. Group riding lessons will focus on different objectives depending on the skill level of the rider.  Trail riding is a favorite among campers and we have several trails on our 175-acre property.

Safety is our number one priority. Our goal is to advance each rider’s knowledge, love & riding ability no matter what their skill level. Being on and around horses teaches children responsibility, assertiveness, determination and self-control as well as fostering a love and appreciation for animals. 

Swimming Pool

When campers first visit our pool, a certified lifeguard will observe the camper's swimming ability and assist the child as needed.  Once confident with their swimming ability, our campers can choose from the water slide, diving board, or just fun-filled water activities led by our lifeguards. Our pool  depth ranges from 3’ to 13” to accommodate every age camper.
