Horseback Riding Camp (ages 7 – 12)
This Camp is designed to give campers an opportunity to experience horsemanship. Campers will learn how to take care of a horse as well as riding horses. Campers will go to the Palmer River Equestrian Center for a half-day and will participate in traditional camp for the other half of the day. The staff at The Palmer River Equestrian Center will familiarize participants with the art of horsemanship. Campers will actively participate in grooming, tacking, basic stable management, and safe riding skills. The goal of the program is to introduce the responsibilities and commitment of horse care while improving riding skills and building confidence, self-esteem, and accountability.
Group 1 will be campers ages 7-9 and Group 2 will be campers 10-12. One group will attend the stable in the morning and then return for an afternoon of traditional camp activities. The other group will participate in traditional camp activities in the morning and then head to the stable for the afternoon.
Drop-off and pick-up will be at Wheeler Seekonk campus. Round-trip transportation is provided to and from Palmer River.
