Open to veteran, current lesson students, CSC, GMC or Horse Amour alumni ONLY please.

Camp will be $65/day, to include at least one ride, and swimming privileges. Manage the barn, work with your favorite horse, help with training the young horses and assist Sue and Steph with chores around the barn. Get your friends together and schedule some camp dates!
