Program Add-Ons

Optional add-ons for campers in Junior and Senior Village.

Perfect for campers who want to participate in traditional camp activities, but also spend a large part of their day with horses. Designed for beginner to intermediate riders, the Half Day Riding Program includes ring lessons, unmounted theory lessons, trail rides and our famous river ride!

Camp Friendship Equestrian Center believes that teaching safe horsemanship practices and caring for these wonderful animals are just as important as learning to ride. For that reason, campers are responsible for grooming and tacking their horses, as well as helping with basic barn chores to ensure our horses are comfortable.

The Half Day Riding Program takes up a full morning or afternoon of a camper’s selected activities and is a great option to develop the fundamental skills of horsemanship in a fun, safe environment while getting to enjoy all that our traditional camp has to offer.

Camp Friendship’s 1-Hour Riding activity is for campers who want to include horseback riding as 1 of their 5 selected activities. This program is only for beginners and is designed to introduce them to English hunt seat riding. Campers in 1-Hour Riding practice the fundamentals in ring lessons and then progress by riding our scenic trails. They even get to experience riding our water-loving horses in the river! This is a wonderful program for beginner riders to get a glimpse into the world of horses.

Refund Policy

We are changing our refund policy for this year. We don’t want families to feel forced to attend camp or lose their money if they aren’t comfortable with the landscape of COVID-19 when we reach the summer. We will offer full refunds or rollovers to 2022 to enrolled families who cancel at any point prior to the start of their session. 

We expect to have camper wait lists this summer and ask that you are mindful regarding the date you choose to cancel. If you cancel with advance notice, we can offer your spot to another camper who is on our wait list. Please reserve last minute cancellations for COVID-19 related concerns – Scout’s honor! If you need to cancel your camper’s enrollment, please email info@campfriendship.com or call us at 434-589-8950.
