Grades 1-6 Horse Camp Registration

Single-day camps for children entering grades 1-4 in fall of 2018. Two-day camps for children entering grades 5-6 in the fall of 2018.

Meet the Zoo’s horses! Build horsemanship skills while learning the basics of horse safety and care. Instruction includes leading, mounting, dismounting, and proper horse care such as feeding, grooming, and saddling. Camp experience includes a staff-led horse ride. Full-day camps include additional barn activities and interaction with horses.

Long pants (ideally jeans) and closed-toe boots or athletic shoes are required. Low-heeled shoes or boots are recommended. Helmets will be provided. Students without proper attire will not be allowed to participate and no refunds or transfers will be offered.
