We are closely following CDC recommendations, Maryland Roadmap to Recovery guidelines, as well as working with the American Camp Association, MD Youth Camps, and environmental advisors to ensure all the recommendations, requirements, guidelines and best practices are followed here at URC. We are an ideal combination of experienced, spacious, small, outdoors, and above all, caring. A quirky and careful operation it will be, but no less fun! Follow this link to our COVID-19 Update page and detailed outline of health and safety protocols.
In addition to our competitive camp rates, there is NO ADDITIONAL CHARGE for Before and/or Aftercare Kids Club between 7:30 - 9:00 a.m. mornings and 4:00 - 5:30 p.m. afternoons.

If you plan to utilize before care, please let us the approximate time you plan to arrive by sending us an email or texting our business mobile number at 240-877-4686 so our health screening staff expects you. For aftercare, please let us know if you will be arriving after 5:30 pm.
At this phase of Maryland’s COVID-19 recovery, busing is not recommended due to the close proximity and co-mingling of campers while in transit. URC’s daily bus routes will not be operating.

What clients say:
" I just wanted to mention the gem you have at URC! As a longtime horse lover, mother and grand mother of equine enthusiasts I have had and witnessed many riding instructors (certified and not). Few if any have exhibited the patience, love of kids and horses and expertise of Rachel, our grand daughter's Saturday and now Friday evening instructor. In my experience, you either get excellent riders but not cut out for teaching or good riders that are bossy and too critical of the kids, usually because they think they are so good themselves. Many times it is evident they are doing it as a job. Rachel is one of a very few instructors in my 50+ year horse history that actually reinforces the the things the riders do best and encourages them to better their weaknesses. I see from the bench her respect for each rider in her classes and her love and knowledge of each horse." RB
