Summer Day Camp

Still Waters Equestrian Academy is looking forward to our 2024 Summer Day Camps. Schedule will be available and registrations will be live beginning January 18.  Please contact us if we can provide any information before that time!  

Camps are targeted towards youth ages 5– 12 with a half day camp for younger riders and a full day camp for riders 8 and older. We also offer a special Mother-Daughter camp experience.

Day camps teach horse care, anatomy, design and horse behavior while emphasizing the character building skills that horsemanship develops.

All camp sessions must be secured by a $200 non-refundable deposit ($100 Pony Pals) with reservation form. Although each session of summer camp is customized for the group attending, all sessions include:

Safety - On the ground and on the horse.

Grooming - Hands on - keeping horses clean and healthy. 

Tacking - Learning how to identify, use, and care for equipment.
