How Do We Get There?
Download The Map!
We should also appear on Google and Apple Maps when searched.
General Camps may or may not have equine related activities, these camps, unless specified otherwise will meet you where your riding abilities are at and help you gain new skills. Whether you've never been on a horse before or you ride daily, we have horses to suit each rider.
How much riding experience do I need to be on a pack trip?
Campers will be expected to saddle their own horses and be comfortable riding for up to 8 hours. The day rides we do include going up and down steep terrain. Campers will need to be ready to live in the wilderness which includes going to the bathroom outside, helping with chores like harvesting firewood and setting up camp.
Is there internet access?
No. There is no internet access for campers at any of our locations. There is also no cell phone service available, so plan on being "offline" for the duration of your stay! We promise, it's a good thing!
We don't attend church; will we feel out of place? Will my child feel pressured to believe in your faith?
Many of our campers do not attend church, a fact which we take into consideration when we plan our programs and camps. No camper will forced or coerced into making any decision at camp. We do our best to include each camper and strive for an inclusive, loving environment in which each person feels accepted and appreciated.
Do you provide subsidies and/or sponsorships for campers who can't afford to come?
We do not want camp fees to keep someone from attending our camps. We only have a certain number of sponsorships available each summer. If you are in need of financial assistance to come to camp or send your child please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
