Frenchtown Riding Club offers eleven weeks of summer day camp, plus spring and winter mini camps. All our camp sessions are available with half-day, full-day, and extended day options.
Our half-day program runs from 9:00 until noon and is perfect for younger campers. Full-day camp runs from 9:00 until 3:00 and includes an afternoon cool-down activity and frozen treats, plus a pizza party and schooling show every Friday. Our extended day begins at 8:30 and runs until 5:30, making it perfect for working parents. All our campers enjoy:
A daily group riding lesson,* suited to each camper’s riding level, conducted by one of our certified riding instructors.**
A horse to adopt for the week, along with another camper, with each pair of campers working together to care for their horse.
Hands-on experience with all facets of horse care, including tacking, grooming, feeding and much more.
A full spectrum of mounted and unmounted games and activities, designed to provide enjoyment, increase knowledge, develop confidence, foster teamwork and encourage camaraderie.
Activities vary from session to session, to keep things fresh.
