For those people who signed up for Kershaw Acres Summer Camps, we plan to honor all of the commitments. Please call us or email us. We will be holding the one day camps that were offered by Kershaw Acres. Our age limit for camp is 6 and over. Younger children are welcome to come for a lesson.
Flying A Riding Academy will also be offering one week summer day camps all summer. In addition to our regular camps, we will be offering beginner camps and a Cowboy/cowgirl camp. The cost of the one week camp is $250. The camp day is from 9:00 to 3:00 but accommodations will be made for working parents who need to drop off early and pick up later. All campers will need a riding helmet, hard soled shoes or boots, and long pants. No meals provided for camp. Refrigerator and microwave are available. Students with their own horse are welcome to bring the horse to camp. The horse can stay here for the week. No need to haul back and forth.
For Beginner and Cowboy/Cowgirl camps you can get your own group together (minimum of three) and pick the week you want to come to camp. Just call us to confirm the week at least one month in advance. We will make every effort to accommodate your dates.
Space is limited so please mail the below form with the weeks you want your child to attend the camp and your area of interest.
Regular Camp is for our riding students or for those who have already attended a Beginner camp with us. The reason for this is so those who already know our routines, saddling, and bridling are not held up from riding while we cover the basics with beginner students. Our student to teacher ratio is three students to one teacher. We do not allow your child to ride unsupervised at any time or to get lost in the crowd.
Beginner Camp is for riders who have not ridden previously or who have not ridden a lot. Campers will need their own helmet and hard soled shoes or boots (Western or English). This camp is limited to no more than six campers per week.
Cowboy/Cowgirl Camp is a beginner camp for those interested in learning the basics of roping and barrel racing. It will include the riding skills needed to compete in these events. Campers will learn to rope and ride! Both of these events (if done correctly) require skills which can only be gained through extensive practice. This camp is designed to teach the basic beginning skills. Camp is limited to four campers per week.
