Horse Camp

Welcome to Horse Camp!

Do you have a horse lover galloping around the house? Then Horse Camp may just be the perfect session for your mustang!  Horse Camp is for ages 9 – 16, come for a week of learning and developing new skills with your horse. From building a relationship on the ground to having greater balance in the saddle. You’ll be on your way to mastering levels one and two of Natural Horsemanship.

Half – Day Camp

Welcome to Day Camp!

Day camp is a great opportunity for horse enthusiasts to try out camp and get in some horse time! Head
out to the barn for horse filled mornings. Day Campers will learn, or continue to develop new skills with
their horse. Start with learning what it takes to build a relationship with a horse and work towards
learning basic horse care, ground games and skills in the saddle. Return for a couple weeks over the
summer to build on your horse experience. Day Campers will be on their way to developing a lifelong
love of horses, during these ½ day barn opportunities.  Sessions are being added, email horses@wesleywoodsiowa.org with your interest.

Let’s Ride – Summer Adventure Camp Upgrade

Sign up for Summer Adventure Camp and add some extra barn fun to your week at camp! Join us two
times in the barn. Once for and arena lesson and then later for a trail ride. This is the perfect mix for
anyone who wants – just a little more of a horse experience in their Summer Camp Adventure.

Advanced Camp

This is the perfect opportunity for anyone with ongoing horse experience (year around lessons, 4-H) to dive deeper into their relational horsemanship & leadership skills development. This camp can be the first step for those with a heart to serve on the Junior Barn Crew in the future. While learning more deeply about your horse skills, help out with projects and activities around the barn.  Experience the ins and outs of how the barn functions and how we get ready for campers.  Of course, you’ll get plenty of horse time on the ground and in the saddle. You’ll also have the opportunity enjoy some of your other favorite camp activities!
