Still Waters Equestrian Academy is looking forward to our 2018 Summer Camps. Schedule will be available and registrations will be live beginning in the middle of January 2018. Please contact us if we can provide any information before that time!
Camps are targeted towards youth ages 6 – 12 with a half day camp for younger riders and a full day camp for riders 8 and older. We also offer a special Mother-Daughter camp experience.
Day camps teach horse care, anatomy, design and horse behavior while emphasizing the character building skills that horsemanship develops.
