For the young horse lover, our summer camp is a fantastic and memorable learning experience. Campers immediately team up with horses best suited for their skill level. And then the fun and the work begins.

Campers will learn to groom, feed, exercise and clean their four-legged riding buddy. This personal relationship bonds the horse and rider together for a great summer camp experience. 
Campers have the option of riding at least 3 hours a day. Equestrian skills, from basic to advanced, from Western to Hunt seat and jumping are taught with great diligence. Self-critiques become a teaching tool, to speed the students’ progress. Special sessions on proper care and selection of riding equipment teaches campers safety pointers when choosing tack and other gear. 

The fun on the trails and in the riding arena fill our camp with laughter and friendship. 
There is always time for friendly chats, volleyball and the usual summer camp frolic. In a young persons life this is a time for growing, goal setting and accomplishments, in a fun, leisurely atmosphere. 

Weather does not hinder our program since we have an indoor arena that is 60' x 144'. Our outdoor arena is 104' x 224', and we have miles of trails. 

Cozy, comfortable campers are the living quarters for students. Meals are home cooked. The breakfast menu varies from cereal, waffles or pancakes. Lunch can be chicken nuggets, macaroni and cheese or sandwiches. Supper can be pizza, chicken or spaghetti. A vegetarian menu is available upon request. 

Teaching positive mental attitude has been our tradition for years. The word CAN'T, is not part of the language used here. The bond that horse and rider develop help to create goal-setting, achievement oriented equestrians. This positive mental attitude is carried throughout life.

"My daughter, Laura, thoroughly enjoyed camp. She grew in so many ways, becoming much more independant. Riding 3 tmes a day, her horsemanship skills advanced quickly. Laura equally enjoyed riding, making new friends and the 'can do' attitude of Bernadette and all the counselors. This is one camp you don't want to miss. Appy Orse Acres is the best horse camp in the country!"
 
"I didn't realize the worth of a camping experience until I saw my child's happy face, and heard about the wonderful memories for weeks and months following her stay at Appy Orse Acres.  I began to understand the true worth of camp as she returned to school with much more confidence and poise after spending her summer at Appy Orse Acres."


Please join us on the last day of camp for our very own Appy Orse Acres Horse Show. All the campers will demonstrate their newly learned riding skills in the arena. There will be fun and games and a chance to meet your child’s horse, whom they will be talking about for years. The event is free-of-charge. The Resident Camp Show begins at 7:00 p.m. and is open to family and friends of the campers. The Day Camp Show begins at 1:00 p.m. and is also open to family and friends. Be sure to bring your camera and chairs!
