Presidents' Day Horsemanship
Youth Day Camp

February 17th thru February 20th

Reserve your spot!


 
Elysian Fields Equestrian Center's day camp program is specially themed and programmed for campers ages 6-17 (completed grades K to 11th) to match their energy and apply their creativity. Portions of the day will be spent in small group games and events, but other portions will sub-divide campers into even more targeted skill level and age-appropriate activities.
 
We're small and personal. Our family-like group is limited to 15 campers, creating a highly supervised camper to staff ratio.

Camp Activities and Schedule
 
Get ready for a new adventure each day! Our day camp program runs from the moment your child is dropped off to the time you pick them up again, and both lessons and activities encompass the day-to-day equestrian lifestyle while instilling qualities of hard work, dedication and good horsemanship. Our ultimate goal is to teach each participant what it would be like to have a horse of their own.
 
Mornings include a short check in and welcome time, and then it’s off to their first activity period. At camp, your child will enjoy an entire day focused around horses. Boys and girls, 6 years and older of all ability levels will enjoy daily riding lessons; instruction in horse care and feeding; proper tack selection; basic veterinary skills and horse anatomy; driving lessons; games and crafts with horse themes and Much More!
 
Activities can take place indoors or outdoors, weather permitting. Your young equestrian will be instructed and given opportunity to perform ground work and ride in our 16,000 sq-ft indoor or 20,000 sq-ft outdoor arenas. Once confident the basics have been achieved, we hit the trails! Slow and steady at first on the beginner trails outlining the open areas and pasture fencing. The beautifully scenic 40-acre hilltop property of Elysian Fields Equestrian Center offers almost a guarantee we will see white tail deer and a fair chance at a glance at wild turkey from the trails.

More Info/What to bring:
 
While we do provide everything needed, some items are encouraged to be brought by your camper.
 
Spillproof water bottle - We provide water, gatorade and lemonade (No Soda). A spillproof container marked with your child's name or easily recognizable will be very helpful.
 
Helmets are required and we do provide SEI Certified Equestrian Riding Helmets.
 
Dress to temperature. We will be mostly indoors and weather is not a concern. It’s not too cold.  We are indoors!  Though most of the barn is not heated, the bathroom and the classroom where we will spend much of our time are heated.
Jeans/leggings are very appropriate. Boots are recommended but not necessary. Please no 'rubber duckies' as they do not provide the foot protection needed in the rare case of getting stepped on. Rubber duckies are fine for mucking stalls in the mornings if they have something to change into after. Sneakers are fine. Absolutely no open toe shoes, sandals or crocks.
