Summer Camps

Summer Riding Camps

Looking for a summer adventure for your children? Consider a week filled with riding and caring for horses with instructor Kelly Crockett at Shimmeryn Woods Sanctuary in Ahoskie, NC. These 5-day summer camps are designed to help individual riders, from those new to horses and riding to the more experienced rider, refine and develop new skills and deepen their relationship with horses. Youth will work with Kelly's herd of Spanish Colonial Mustangs, understanding horse behavior, human/horse communication skills, vet care, proper grooming, horse and human safety, compassionate training techniques, riding,  horse economics, and Colonial Spanish horse history—plus more. From round pen and training work, to controlled riding skills and jumping, young riders have a lot of options.

Summer riding camps for 2019 are currently full. Check back in March of 2020 for the 2020 summer camp schedule.

Girl Scouts participating in camp will earn their Horseback Riding Badge as well as their Colonial Spanish Horse patch at no additional cost.
