Camps

Summer is here!  Time for horse camp fun…

Golden Isles Riding Academy offers several camps during the year based on the local school calendar and summer break. Each camper is assigned his or her “own” horse for the day and are taught horse safety, how to groom, lead, saddle and bridle their horse in addition to riding. Campers enjoy two riding sessions each day along with other horse skills such as braiding, clipping, applying leg bandages and other care items. The central focus of the camp is, of course, riding and improving their horsemanship skills, but fun is always at the top of the agenda which includes horse related games, crafts and other activities. Campers have the full attention of the staff as regular lessons are canceled during camp hours. Camp is a great way to introduce a new rider to the responsibility of being a horse person and to the exciting world of horses.

What to Wear:  Campers must wear long pants and hard sole shoes.  Tennis shoes or English paddock boots are acceptable.  Campers must wear a helmet while riding – helmets are provided. Campers can bring shorts to change into after riding.  NO flip-flops or sandals. Sunscreen and bug spray are a plus!

What to Bring:  For our week long camp, bring your smile and plenty of energy for a fun-filled day.  Bring a sack lunch along with snacks and drinks Monday thru Thursday.  There will be a Pizza Party on the Friday of each week long camp.

Also on Friday, the riders will show off what they have learned with a mini “horse show” for family at 2:00 p.m.

Camp is limited to 10 riders, aged 6 years and up, and is on a first come basis. Camp hours are from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Early drop off and late pick up hours are available (8:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. respectively) for an additional $10.00 per day. Call us today to reserve your spot for a fun time – camps fill up fast.

Parents/Guardians – please complete the Camp Enrollment/Release forms.  Bring them with your camper on the first day of camp, or mail them in prior to camp start date!
