When is the right time to let a young person start to venture out on their own? Over half of our yearround staff are parents and we ask this same question. Together, we all long to see our kids grow through ageappropriate challenges. Kids’ Camp is the perfect place for those first steps of freedom and where they can be kids in a structured, child-friendly, outdoor setting. Adventures await that they won’t have back at home. Close to 2 to 1 Camper to Trained Staff Ratio and Nurse on duty 24/7.
Horsemanship Classes and Lessons are an optional add-on for Kids’ Camp. Fort Wilderness is a member of the Certied Horsemanship Association and we follow their standards and techniques in order to promote a fun, safe and educational experience. Classes are spread out over 4 days, weather-permitting.
Barn and Ring Class (+$140): this class offers campers spiritually based application of basic horsemanship principles divided into 1 hour of riding lessons and an hour of classroom lecture per day, with lots of hands on experience. Western riding fundamentals, such as position and technique, will be taught to allow the rider to develop control of their horse at each gait.
Trail Class (+$100): Designed for the weekend rider, campers are on a horse for approximately 45 minutes per day in God’s creation. Some riding instruction is given, such as crossing trail obstacles, controlling your horse at different gaits and basic horse info. It’s all done in a laid back, fun Fort way!
We welcome your family to drive your child up to Fort, take a tour and meet your counselor. You may also utilize our transportation. It is available for our summer youth programs, with pickups on opening Saturday and drop-offs on closing Friday of camp. We use a coach bus and/or vans, all chaperoned by trained Fort Staff.
