CAMP DATES FOR 2018: Limited to 24.  

Farm Camp 1 & Farm Camp 2 -- June 18-22 & June 25-29
This camp is for the younger kids. Find out what it's like to be a farm kid. Feed the animals, play in the hay barn, ride and take care of ponies and much more!
Want your kids to know what it's like growing up on a farm? Then this camp is for you! We grow veggies, ride ponies, catch crayfish in the stream and just get dirty! Kids learn what it's like to just play and not be on a schedule. Farm Camp 1 is for the younger kids, ages 3-5. Farm Camp 2 is for ages 6 and up (exceptions can be made.) The favorite camp of the summer!!

Horsemanship 1 -- July 9-13
HUNTER | Ready to learn more about hunter shows or are you ready to go to your first show? This camp is geared towards the aspiring hunter show rider and will feature a real horse show on Friday in which the camp students can compete. Along with daily lessons, we teach basic horsemanship, how to prepare for a horse show, and everything that goes into it, and general horse knowledge. We work hard, but we play hard too! Basic horsemanship skills are encouraged but not required for this camp. Ages 6-17

Event Camp -- August 6-10
EVENTING | Camp follows Olney's recognized event on August 5th so courses will be set. This camp is for those kids interested in learning more about the sport of eventing or advancing their eventing skills. The camp will focus on skills needed for each phase of eventing (dressage, cross country, and show jumping), with an emphasis on competitive skills, rules, etiquette, and horsemanship , as well as what to expect at your first event. No eventing experience required, however, riders should be comfortable jumping small jumps. This is not for riders who have never jumped.

Registration opens March 1 for current Olney students, and March 15th for all others. Discounts for early registration.
