Summer Day Camps

Horsin' Around Day Camp offers children ages 4 through 12 the chance to enjoy life on a farm through hands-on horse care and daily hunt-seat riding. Children receive private instruction aimed at their individual ability level, and also participate in group rides where they learn by watching and helping others. Learning games, stable activities and playing with the farm animals round out a fun-filled week. Acres of green pasture, large indoor and outdoor riding arenas, and a beautifully restored barn create a wonderful setting for campers to explore and enjoy. Horsin' Around Day Camp truly is an unforgettable week!

So Much To Do...

With so much to learn and do, each day is packed with exciting activities, such as:
• daily riding in private and group lessons
• grooming and tacking the ponies
• learning about horse behavior
• feeding and watering the horses
• playing "pin the part on the horse"
• helping clean a stall and other barn chores
• cooling off while giving a pony a bath
• watching a horseshoeing demonstration
• joining in a "horseless horse show"
• getting to know all the farm animals

Dates & Costs

Bay Crest Farm Day Camps will be offered for two different weeks over the summer of 2011:
• June 20 - 24
• August  dates TBD
• Times 9am - noon
The cost will be $285 per week, per child.

Camps are open to children ages 4 to 12, beginner to intermediate levels. We reserve the right to cancel or change dates, based on participation. In such cases, a full cash refund will be given if we are unable to re-register your child in a session of your choice. In addition to camps, Bay Crest Farm offers many other ways to enjoy and pursue your love of horses, for both children and adults. Ask us about riding lessons, full-service boarding and care, professional training, horse shows, clinics, sales and leasing. Campers should wear boots or shoes with a closed-toe and a low heel (no tennis shoes or other flat-soled shoes). Shorts are OK in the barn, but long pants are needed for riding. Each camper is encouraged to purchase a properly-fitted ASTM-approved helmet from a local tack store prior to camp, or Bay Crest Farms has a limited selection of helmets for general use. Be sure to also protect your child with sunscreen and bug spray, and send them with a snack. We'll supply the rest!
