Equestrian Program

Camp YI is an introductory equestrian program with a focus on SAFETY, fun and learning.

The number one priority with all campers is safety.  Our goal is to safely and responsibly introduce equestrian activities to all campers, so that they may have the opportunity to develop equestrian knowledge and a love for horses no matter their skill level. Interaction  with horses teaches children responsibility, assertiveness, determination, perserverance, and empathy, while enhancing communication skills and fostering love, respect, and appreciation for animals. 

The Equestrian Educational Program is offered to all campers for no additional cost. This program teaches basic equestrian safety, grooming, tacking, and horse care.

Group horse back riding lessons are offered for an additional fee of $45 for one week campers and $90 for two week campers. Lessons will focus on developing riding skills. Lesson objectives will vary depending on the skill and confidence of the rider. 

 

 

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.

Camp Crafts
