Summer Camp Overview
Welcome to Battlefield Park Summer Day Camp! Our primary focus here at Battlefield Park is providing a safe environment for your child to learn to ride and interact with horses. Our equestrian program combines qualified staff, experienced school horses, and a new state of the art facility that will insure that your children have a fun and laughter filled summer in the safest possible manner.
Battlefield Park is nestled on 6 acres of beautiful pastures and mature trees, and we have a small retention pond that houses our fish and turtles. We have just completed an indoor arena that measures 75’ x 150” of riding area with 16’ ceilings to accommodate all equestrian activities in inclement weather. The indoor arena has 10 stalls attached and a beautiful lounge and tack room with powder room. Our outdoor arena measures 120’ x 200’ and can be used in most weather conditions due to its crushed blue stone footing. Our small barn houses 10 horses and a small tack and feed room. We lease surrounding pastures in which our horses live most of the year.
Our 15 amazing lesson horses have taught many children and adults alike to ride. They live happily in their herd out in the fields, horses are happiest when they live naturally grazing on the land with plenty of fresh air and water. We have enough horses for every child at camp to have their very own favorite.
Battlefield Park has chosen to follow the United States Pony Club curriculum in all of our horsemanship activities. We feel that it provides children with a strong foundation in which they can grow in their abilities and measure their skills. Campers will be placed into groups according to their level and current skill with horses. Most campers will have no previous experience with horses, so in most cases they will be in groups according to their age.
We staff two professional instructors and one professional groom as well as a nurse from a local school. Our summer counselors will be high school and college age equestrians that know how to safely work in and around children and a barn. The ratio of counselors to campers last year was 1 to 5.
