Summer Camp - Little Burgundy Farm - Alexandria , VA
We don't run a "riding camp," we run a "horsemanship camp." Our philosophy is that children should have fun, but they should also learn about the many aspects of how to ride and care for a horse. To provide this broad experience, we will introduce the challenges of horse ownership -- primarily by having them help with chores around the farm. We want to show the campers that horses require a lot of work. That said, please be assured that your camper will have fun helping us clean stalls, fill water buckets, and throw hay, but please let your camper know that there will be some dirty work involved.
After-camp daycare and after-camp lessons may be available. Please let us know if you need after-camp daycare when registering for camp.
Except for the week of July 4th, camp will run Monday through Friday and it will begin at 8:00am and end at 12:00pm (noon). We will run a short camp at a discounted rate during the week of 4th of July (camp will run Monday through Wednesday, but not Thursday and Friday). Camp will be limited to a minimum of four campers and a maximum of eight campers per week and the minimum age is 7 years old.
