White Oak Stables summer camps are fun, creative and educational. We will keep your kids from sitting in front of computers, tablets, phones and video games all day long by keeping them active and engaged through creative expression, fitness and learning. We can provide your children with a one of a kind experience they will never forget in a beautiful, serene farm setting. See some of our past summer camp sessions!

Rider vs Non-Rider Attendance: Any camper attending as a rider will get to take a riding lesson at least one time a day, sometimes two times if weather and time permits. Non-riders will be asked to help groom and tack up horses, audit the lesson and work as a jump crew at least once a day, sometimes two if weather and time permits. Non-rider attendance is great for campers that want to have a horse camp experience without straining your wallet. It’s also perfect for campers that maybe to nervous or fearful to ride but that still love horses and want to spend more time with them. Non-riders will get to participate in all other camp activities.

Clothing: Appropriate riding shoes and pants are required, we can provide riding helmets.

Prior Experience: We prefer our youngest riders to have taken at least 2 lessons with us at any time before the start of camp so we can make sure they can stop and steer the horses but no experience is required.

Lunch & Snack: Will not be provided, each child must come with a bag lunch and snack

Cooking: Sometimes we do a cooking, cake decorating and ice cream activities therefore we must be made aware of any wheat, milk, soy and egg food allergies your child has.
