Equestrian Day Camp
Day Camp with a twist for horse lovers ages 11-12.
The schedule for Equestrian Day Camp follows the schedule for traditional Day Camp but while the Day Campers are involved in their group activities, the Equestrian Day Campers will be at the barn gaining hands on experience with the horses.
During their time at camp, the campers will be learning how to groom and tack a horse, different horse and tack parts, breeds, colors, markings, and basic horse care. They will also have the opportunity to ride every day during their time. The campers will be receiving riding lessons by qualified instructors in a class of campers with similar riding abilities. Trail rides, games on horseback, and many other horse related activities will round out their day. Besides the horse experience, the campers will still be involved with the rest of Day Camp, participating in chapels, swim times, gold rush, and world service carnival. Equestrian Day Camp is a great way to fulfill your horse passion while here at camp.

For the Parents
Camp Tecumseh is an American Camping Association (ACA) accredited site as well as a Certified Horseman’s Association (CHA) accredited site. Our site and safety practices meet all ACA and CHA guidelines. Our director, Amie Gleason, is also a CHA certified instructor. All of our counselors and instructors have gone through a week long training that models the CHA instructor’s certification training. Each child is to wear an ASTM/SEI certified helmet that is no older than 5 years of age and properly fits their head. Your child is more than welcome to bring their own helmet as long as it meets our guidelines and it fits their head properly. A proper list of items to bring to Equestrian Day Camp will come to you in a welcome packet when you register.
