Horse Camp

Give your child the unforgettable experience of riding a horse across the Tallgrass Prairie! Our Horse Camps give equine-loving campers a chance to immerse themselves in all things horse-related. It’s hard to imagine a more perfect landscape to spend time with horses than the wide-open spaces of the Flint Hills.

Horse Day Camp

Our day camp program is designed for beginning through advanced horse riders. Starting at 9 each morning, day campers will get the opportunity to ride and care for Camp Wood YMCA’s herd of gentle horses with the help of our experienced team of Wranglers. In addition to riding and instruction time, day campers will also get to sample popular camp programs like swimming and archery before heading home at 5 each afternoon. If you don’t think your child is ready for a full week of overnight horse camp or your schedule doesn’t permit it, Horse Day Camp is a great option!

Overnight Horse Camp

This popular overnight camp is for all equestrians. Horse campers learn everything from animal care to safe riding techniques. And, of course, they get to ride horses every day both in our arena and on scenic prairie trails. Mornings are spent with the horses and experienced Wrangler staff at the barn and on the trails, while afternoons and evenings are spent in traditional camp activities. Instruction is tailored to the skill level of each camper so, whether you’re a novice or an emerging expert, you’ll learn new skills and have a rewarding week surrounded by horses and people who love them just as much as you do.
