Dapper Dan's Summer Camp is a fun, friendly, educational and hands-on camp. Our goal is to give your child an idea of how exciting and fun working with horses can be. Every day, as well as riding twice daily, with CPR certified instructors, there is a demonstration of proper horsemanship in one of varying fields. These demos include: lunging, braiding, body clipping, wrapping, anatomy of the horse, parts of the bridle and saddle, grooming and many others.
We also play games (on and off horseback), and go for nature walks and trail rides in Goddard Park (located directly next door). Your child should bring a bathing suit and towel for water games and pool time. We also have an indoor ring for rainy day riding and activities. On Fridays, we venture next door for the Goddard Park Farmer's market!
Camp cost is $350.00 for a full day, and $225 for a half-day (9am-12pm). A non-refundable deposit of $50 is required with the registration form. The deposit will be applied to your camp cost. After camp supervision is offered at $10 per hour if you are unable to pick your child up at the end of the camp day. Additional hours must be paid for in advance. Children should bring a bagged lunch (refrigerator available and we will provide beverages), bathing suit/towel, helmet (bicycle helmets are fine) and a change of clothes. It is advised that your child wears long pants for riding, but may bring shorts to change into while eating and doing crafts. If possible, riding boots are the safest foot gear.
