General Information

What time do campers need to arrive? - Campers are asked to arrive 15 minutes prior to each session.

Is there a dress code? - Campers are asked to wear long pants (shorts are not permitted), and are urged to wear a comfortable top that covers the stomach. All campers are required to wear helmets, which are provided. Finally, campers are encouraged to wear boots, but sneakers are OK...just no sandals.

Is there an age limit for who can attend? - There are two age groups: 4 to 6 and 7 to 13. In order to participate in the Beginners All Day Camp (9:00 am - 4:00 pm), the child must be at least 7 years of age. 

What happens if there is bad weather? - Since we have an indoor arena, weather is not an issue. In the event of severe weather, the house on the property has a storm shelter.

What about food? - All campers are asked to bring a snack and a water bottle to each session. Campers attending one of the all day camps also need to bring a sack lunch. There is a soda machine and a microwave at the facility.

How much does Summer Camp cost? - The morning camps (9:00 am - Noon) cost $275 per camper and the all day camps (9:00 am - 4:00 pm) cost $375. A $25 nonrefundable deposit is due with registration, and the balance of the camp cost is due on the first day of camp. Payments can be made with cash or checks (made out to American Legacy Complex). Unfortunately, we cannot accept payments made with credit or debit cards.


Educational Itinerary

Campers will learn about:

  • Horse Safety
  • Grooming
  • Horse Health
  • Breeds and Colors
  • Tack and Equipment
  • Riding Styles
  • Much More

Please note that campers will spend the majority of each day riding. All summer camp activities are geared towards learning horsemanship; therefore, there are no unrelated activities like swimming or crafts.


Important Details

Scouts may earn badges or patches by participating in the camp. If a child is interested in getting a badge or patch, please indicate on the registration form.

On the last day of camp, the campers will put on a Show & Tell for friends, family, and other invited guests. Please plan on attending and bring a camera to capture images from this special day.
