Student Drop-off and Pick-up: Camp starts at 9 a.m. and ends at 5 p.m. Special arrangements can be made with staff to drop off students as early as 8 a.m. and pick up by 6 p.m. at an additional charge of $30. For your child's safety, campers must be signed in and out by a parent or guardian. If your child is to be picked up by anyone other than a parent or legal guardian you must notify us in writing and they must present a current driver's license for identification.
What do we need to bring? Capricorn provides the horses, tack, and helmets*. Our facility also includes an air-conditioned lunchroom and refrigerators for campers to use. Remember, most of the day will be spent outside, so take that into account when preparing your child for each day of camp. If in doubt about whether to bring something, please consult our staff— they’re happy to help. Following is a general list of items we ask campers to bring. Parents will be provided additional information upon registration.
- - Sack lunch and snacks
- - Plenty of water
- - Long pants and hard sole shoes or boots to ride in
- - A comfortable change of clothes for non-riding activities
- - Sunscreen
- - Horse treats (optional)
*Students under 18 must wear protective headgear, so riding helmets are furnished. However, students can wear bike helmets with written parental permission.
What will they do? Campers are divided into groups according to riding experience, comfort level, or age. Groups are then taught safety around horses, how to saddle and bridle, and are matched to a horse with the camper’s needs in mind. Every day features two one-hour lessons on horseback. In addition to riding, campers will learn about taking care of horses by helping with traditional barn chores like feeding, watering, and grooming horses as well as cleaning the barn area. Other activities during the week may include outside games, arts and crafts, games on horseback, and horse costume/grooming contests. On Friday, Capricorn hosts a camper horse show for family and friends to attend.
