Summer Camp Full Day Activities!

Please note some 2022 Summer Kids Club activities will be subject to limitations and modifications due to COVID-19 restrictions.

 

Horseback Riding

Horseback riding is the focus of our camp! All summer camp program participants have the opportunity to ride daily, including a lesson or trail ride every day. Arena lessons are conducted in our Outdoor arenas; trail rides are on URC property through the woods or fields, and even to the creek to let the horse's splash around.  (No camper is ever forced to ride.)

Swimming

All camp activity rotations include swimming daily, (weather permitting).   Campers are given a swim test at the start of their first camp week to assess their swimming abilities.  Beginner swimmers are assigned floatation devices. Certified life guards  and spotters oversee activities at all times. Our girls and boys locker rooms for changing include private toilets and showers.  Check out that water slide!

Ultimate Equestrian Lessons
Nature Hikes

Ultimate Equestrian riders have a challenging structured lesson daily and extra time handling horses throughout the day. They also enjoy three afternoons of additional mounted games/fun trail rides and horse interactive and learning sessions each week.  Current skills and riding experience required.

Nature hikes along the Little Bennett Branch of the Monocacy River and wildlife walks in the abundant woods are always a hit…bring your river shoes!

 Horse Lover's and Summer Kids Club Lessons

Campers in these groups will learn basic skills along with many aspects of riding and horse care. Previous horseback riding experience is not required to participate in horse care or our camp programs. 

Climbing Wall

Our 24-foot indoor climbing wall and bouldering wall allow campers to experience the thrills of rock climbing.  URC Staff are certified in this activity.

The Pony Spa

Most campers love to groom and wash the horses. The Pony Spa along with our four indoor wash stalls provide plenty of opportunity for campers to care for horses if they like. Horses love it, too!!

Field Games

Soccer, baseball, basketball, Frisbee, and archery are some of the fun filled field sports the club encourages members to participate in. The focus is on individual improvement.
