Summer Full Day Kids Club Activities
Horseback riding is the focus of our club. All Summer Kids Club members will ride every day and learn many aspects of riding and horse management while still enjoying the many general activities. No experience is necessary.
Games on the ponies as EXTRA RIDING.
Challenge Course & Zip Line
The challenge course offers members the opportunity to develop teamwork and coordination. Obstacles include rope swings, fidget ladder, balance beam, and bosun chairs. And the 200 foot zip line is awesome! Nature hikes along the Little Bennet Branch of the Monocacy River and wildlife walks in the abundant woods are always a hit…bring your river shoes!
Ultimate Rider Lessons
Lesson and/or trail ride twice a day and have extra time to care for horses along with the other camp activities.
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.
Clue hunts, mystery races and silly lawn games keep the kids guessing what's next!
Arts & Crafts
Our 3000 square foot recreation hall gives members plenty of room to experiment in candle art, sand art, beads, gimp, ceramics, and more. Specialized staff will give guidance.

Kids Club Lessons
Members have a lesson or trail ride every day. Trail rides are through the woods or fields and even to the river to splash around.
Club members are given a swim test each Monday to assess their swimming abilities and beginner swimmers are assigned floatation devices. Certified life guards oversee activities at all times. Check out that water slide!
Our 24 foot indoor climbing wall and bouldering wall allow members to experience the thrills of rock climbing. Only four kids made it to the top of the firecracker ladder this summer!
The Pony Spa
Many children love to groom and wash the horses. The Pony Spa along with our four indoor wash stalls provide plenty of opportunity for children to care for horses if they like.
Giant Slip-N Slide
The 150 foot hill slide will thrill even the bravest kids.
Includes volleyball, tetherball, merry-go-round, play castle & ship, balance beam, and swings.
Every other Friday (even week numbers) the club will provide cake for members to enjoy.
