Summer Equestrian Camp!
Holiday and PD Day Equestrian Days!
Students need to be at least 4 years of age in order to register for the full day camp. Students aged 4 to 6 need to arrange for an assessment lesson prior to registering for camp in order to determine if the student has the maturity necessary for a full week of horseback riding camp.
The Equestrian Camp is for students of all skill levels, from beginner riders to advanced riders. Riding lessons in the camp will be based on individual riding needs so that everyone will be challenged appropriately.
Start and End Times:
Camp runs from 8:30 am to 4:00 pm. Drop-off can be as early as 8:00 am. Pick-up can be as late as 4:30 pm. If you need a drop-off or pick up outside of these hours, this may be able to be arranged. Please contact Rhonda prior to the beginning of the camp week to ensure that staff are available for this. This must be arranged at least 7 days prior to the start of the camp week or it is not guaranteed. There is an additional fee for the extended hours before 8 am or after 4:30 pm $10 per half hour or part-half-hour. Participants who are dropped off before 8 am or picked up after 4:30 pm without pre-arranging this will be billed $15 per half hour or part-half-hour.
A non-refundable, non-transferrable $20 deposit for each day of camp is required with the registration form. The remaining balance is due at the beginning of each camp day. Payment can be made by cash, cheque, or email transfer.
Each day of the Holiday and PD Day Equestrian Camp is $75 plus HST.
A discount of $5 per day (plus HST) is available for anyone booking 5 days or more in total.
Students are responsible for wearing proper riding attire. This includes an approved riding helmet, riding boots (a sturdy shoe or boot with a heel – rubber boots work well), and long pants. For the student’s safety, anyone in shorts or inappropriate footwear will not be allowed to ride. Helmets are mandatory and are available from Maplewood Equestrian Centre to borrow while riding, but feel free to bring your own equestrian-approved helmet if you have one.
Food and Drink:
A small fridge and microwave are available for warming up food and drinks. There is also a cold drink vending machine available with choices such as juice, water, pop, and gatorade. Most choices cost $1. Students need to bring at least two large water bottles filled with water from home. The water in the barn is safe to drink, but it does not taste good (the horses like it, though!).
Things to Bring:
Warm clothes Toque
Drinks Long pants
Footwear with a heel for riding Gloves
Maplewood Equestrian Centre takes pictures for use in a craft project that the students sometimes work on during the camp, which is mandatory. We also sometimes take photographs for use on the tv screensaver in the lounge, newsletters and posters, and on our Web site (www.maplewoodec.ca) to show different elements of the camp. If you have a specific concern with this, please let us know, otherwise it is assumed that permission is granted.
