Summer Day Camp (Ages 6-15)
Dates: July 15th-19th & July 22nd-26th
Along with my Millshaw Meadows Day Camp staff (and furry helpers), I am so pleased to be back for another great summer of fun in the Cowichan Valley! Millshaw Meadows is a special place where young campers can build their self-confidence while enjoying the pleasure of riding and developing a friendship with their camp horse. We will running week-long sessions on July 15th and 22nd.
Campers will be assigned one horse with another camper that will be theirs for the whole week. They will learn everything about horse care including basic grooming, saddling, even some horse psychology! Each camper will take a riding lesson in the morning or afternoon. Other camp activities will be going on for those not in a lesson. These activities include arts and crafts, on-the-ground horsey time games and gardening. The team will come together again in the afternoon to prepare their horse to be turned out to pasture. They will learn the parts, colors, markings, and different breeds of horses. There will be instruction in show grooming, braiding, and horse leading techniques. Campers will also learn how to tie-up a horse, place a saddle, arena etiquette and how to control the horse to walk and trot on command. On the last day of every session, our campers get a chance to demonstrate their new riding skills with a horse show for friends and family!
