SUMMER CAMP 2020!
Everyone deserves to experience the joy of equine camp! Camps are available at both locations - Catharpin and Rappahannock - and are open to kids 2-17! Our preschool camps (ages 2-5) are only available at our Catharpin location.
Weekly Day Camps!
It's not all fun and games...well, yes it is! All of our games, crafts, horsemanship lessons, and ride time are targeted at improving our campers' skills as young adults and horsemen/women.
The camp week is open to kids age 6-17 and runs Monday through Friday from 9 AM to 3 PM. The mornings consist of exercising horses, horsemanship lessons, and training as riding instructors! Campers assist in caring for our horses as well as aiding our preschoolers in their activities and in the saddle. And on Friday we host a barn show!
Our focus, in everything we do, is balance for horse and rider. We offer an all-around approach targeting the virtues horseback riding has to offer: mental and physical strength, creative thinking, problem solving, confidence, emotional regulation, hard work, tenacity, and more!
Available at our Catharpin location, preschool camp is open to kiddos 2-6 years of age and runs Tuesday through Friday from 9:30 AM - 12 PM. No horse experience is needed. The day consists of games, crafts, horsemanship, and riding! Parents are welcome to stay and learn along with their kids! North Star counselors will assist as horse leaders and sidewalkers to maintain a safe and positive atmosphere.
