On June 7th we will open registration for all remaining program spaces in at a pro-rated cost. There is a new lesson schedule and updated forms: all riders, re-enrolling and new must complete Summer Quarter registration forms. Please read through the schedule and registration documents thoroughly. See our COVID-19 page or check your email for further details and don't hesitate to reach out with any questions.
We are actively accepting Summer Kids Club camp registrations! Maryland Youth Camps have been approved to operate -- effective Friday, 5/29/20, at 5:00 p.m.!
We have been anticipating this go-ahead for weeks, and are now in full-swing preparations for another exciting and fun-filled summer. 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.
If you are interested in reserving camp weeks for your child, please fill out and submit the registration form. You will receive an invoice through our QuickBooks software, which will reflect the registered weeks. New this year - the Quickbooks invoice will also be able to accept payment from you directly and we may accept multiple week enrollments on an installment plan.
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 your family needs extended Before or Aftercare - as early as 6:30 a.m. or as late as 6:30 p.m., give us a call to work something out that suits your schedule.
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. If your family needs transportation assistance, please shoot us an email.
Please contact us with any questions! We look forward to hosting your child this summer!

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
