July 19 - 23

August 2 - 6

Welcome to Fairwinds Day Camp! 

Our number one priority is safety!  Our skilled instructors know our horses well - unlike other camps where the horses are "trucked in" for the summer, our horses work with us all year. Why is this important? It means that we know our horse’s strengths, weaknesses and personalities and can match them expertly to your child’s riding ability and style. 

Throughout the week, riders will learn important skills both in the saddle and on the ground. On Friday, riders participate in the camp horse show to demonstrate their new skills for family and friends, with a BBQ to follow! 
 

Riders are split into two groups based on riding ability. Children MUST be 8-14 years old to attend. Cost is $360 per child. A $50 non-refundable deposit is due with your application.
 

Please have your child bring the following items to camp:

Bag lunch Water thermos Mask Writing utensil Plain T-shirt (for crafts)
