  • Friday is a time to share with family or friends, a snippet of what the camper has learned during the week.  Campers have a final lesson to showcase what they have learned or accomplished throughout their week at camp.  Campers ride at either 9am or 10:30am. 

Additional Activities:

  • Pony Games- one evening each week, campers have the opportunity to dress silly and play games with and on horses ranging from egg and spoon races to 3-legged camper races. 
  • Late-Night Tag Game- campers look forward to an extra late night of playing tag games in one of the campus buildings. 
  • Bonfire- we love to wrap up our time together on Thursday night with a bonfire.  Campers love to share stories, eat s'mores, and spread quality time around the fire before returning home.
