These sample camps schedules are actually from our own summer horse camp experiences. Use them for inspiration, and adapt as needed when planning your own camps.
All of these camps are suitable for English or Western riding.
WHAT WE DID:
Our camps have always been a two-instructor operation, allowing us to divide campers into two groups, usually with 4-6 students in each group, depending on the Level. While one group had a mounted lesson, the second group had an unmounted lesson or horsey craft time.
Rotating groups in this way helped us make the most of our tightly scheduled programming — and kept our students engaged and learning throughout each day.
You’ll find a variety of different themes and riding disciplines here because we discovered that our students would eagerly attend multiple camps throughout the year if we created those camps with a specific focus.
These are just a few of the specialty camps we offered year after year — we also did camps with other themes (show jumping, dressage, etc.)
WHAT YOU CAN DO:
Of course, your camps need to fit your unique situation, so just borrow the ideas and scheduling that will work for you.
And whatever your schedule entails, we hope you have fun with it!
