Waubonsie Horse Camp Scheduled for June 5

NEW THIS YEAR – A HORSELESS HORSE TRACT!
We welcome campers of all skill levels.  Beginners will gain experience, while advanced participants will gain confidence through activities designed to sharpen riding skills and horse knowledge.
 
Waubonsie Horse Camp provides a safe and fun environment for campers to develop their Head, Heart, Hands and Health.  Through fourfold development, campers learn life skills, build self-esteem, develop respect and appreciation for others, learn to work in a cooperative manner, and foster healthy habits.
 
Campers can choose the Riding Tract, or the Horseless Horse Tract.  In the Riding Tract, campers will develop riding and showmanship skills through in-the-saddle clinics.  In the Horseless Horse Tract, campers will focus on horse knowledge.  Regardless of the tract chosen, all campers will learn about a variety of equine topics and enjoy traditional camp favorites like good grub, recreation, and team-building activities!
