ED LEVIN PARK - HORSE CAMPS
Milpitas camps will be held at the Ed Levin Park arena at 3077 Calaveras Rd, Milpitas.
LITTLE RIDERS CAMP (ages 6-8 years old)
A day full day camp of learning and physical activities can be overwhelming for our littler riders. This shorter smaller class setting is catered to the younger riders 6-8 years old. This camp is a good introduction to time in the outdoors with our amazing staff and lesson horses. They will have an opportunity to learn how to safely interact with horses and enjoy the company of other little riders. This opportunity has a shorter lesson to prevent riders from getting too sore or tired. Campers’ activities will include but aren’t limited to:
· Riding (mounting, steering, stopping, speed control, balance, posting, dismounting)
· Learn to groom
· Learn to lead
· Learn to saddle
· Horse anatomy
· Horse colors and markings
· Arts and crafts
· Horse games
· Nature walks
Campers should arrive each afternoon between 12:45 PM and 1 PM. Pickup should be promptly at the end of the day 3 PM. Your child’s safety and enjoyment at camp is very important to us. Being on time allows them to receive the maximum benefit of camp, and due to limited supervision after camp, it is important that they are picked up on time.
Children must be picked up by 3:15 PM. There will be a $1.00 per minute charge for every minute after 3:15 PM.
YOUTH CAMP (ages 8-13 years old)
Learn about horse care: grooming, feeding, bathing, and even horse first aid! Saddle a horse, learn about tack, and even explore different styles of riding! You'll find out interesting facts about the history, evolution, and anatomy of the horse while picking up some horse lingo (did you know that horses are measured in hands?) and caring for and riding the horse you'll have throughout the camp session.
When not riding, you'll get to play games, make new friends and get crafty! All of our camps are onsite within a beautiful county park system which allows the campers to enjoy nature hikes and explore the countryside on select days of the camp as well!
Bring your own lunch and don't forget your bottle of water!
Campers are grouped by age and/or family and/or friends.
Campers will learn basic riding commands, controlling speed & improving communication between horse & rider. The riding lesson will be based on the least experience rider.
Campers should arrive each morning between 8:45 and 9:00 AM. Pickup should be promptly at the end of the day 2 PM. Your child’s safety and enjoyment at camp is very important to us.
