Riding Camps

Day camp with the Ian Millar School of Horsemanship is a great way to introduce your child to horseback riding and feed their love of animals in a fun and safe environment!

Our camp day starts at 9:00AM, camper drop-off begins at 8:30AM. Our day wraps up at 4:00PM with camper pick-up ending at 4:30PM. Campers stay occupied with a wide range of activities throughout the week, including games, crafts, outdoor play, equine theory, hands on learning, and of course horseback riding lessons! The ratio of campers to counsellors is five to one.

Getting Ready for Camp:

We want to make sure that everyone is prepared for a fun filled week, so here are a few reminders:

  • Please bring or wear appropriate riding apparel: A boot with a heel for safety purposes – no fashion boots please. Slim leg pants, like leggings – no jeans, capris, or shorts please. Properly fitted and approved equestrian helmet.
  • We are a nut aware facility. We often have campers that have serious nut allergies, so please avoid lunch foods with any sort of nut.

At Wesley Clover Parks safety is always first. We are committed to the safety of our campers, horses, and team. We will adapt camp activities in order to mitigate any safety concerns (i.e. weather, power outages, etc.). We appreciate your understanding!
