Summer Riding Academy Camp
We are celebrating 15+ years of camp at Erin Meadows Farm. Camp is held Mon-Fri. Our mission is to teach life skills through riding. We develop confidence, co-operation, coordination, and commitment. Our teachers are selected to be role models with patience and understanding. Many are college students studying equine management or education. Our Camp Director has a Masters Degree in Education. Curriculum is age appropriate and student centered. We focus on individual instruction. Our horses and ponies are selected for size and temperment, and of course it helps to be cute. We can offer a unique camp experience if it is your first week of camp or a returning camper. Individual and small group learning centers create an indeal setting for growth.
Our goal is to teach kids to enjoy riding. Riding develops balance, strength, and coordination. We provide a unique opportunity for young people. Children who are already athletes will enjoy this fun sport and those who may not have had success in team sports can enjoy an activity that will instill confidence and a sense of accomplishment and learn patience, responsibility, respect for animals and the environment.
Help with newly born foals, feed and care for ponies, puppies, kittens and other animals--a full farm experience! This is a camp for kids who love horses and really want to ride and learn about ponies and their care.
