In our horseback riding program, girls progress through levels of expertise, gradually building skills and confidence.
For scheduling flexibility, girls of all skill levels can attend any week. On the first day of each session, girls take a riding assessment and are placed in the appropriate riding level. Housing is assigned based on age and buddy requests. See our full horse camp offerings.
Hug a Horse
Girls who want a sample of the horse program can explore their interest with our Hug a Horse four-day program.
Horse Camps for Troops + Families
6 + 13 Day Riding Connection
Learn Western horseback riding, horse anatomy, general horse care and career opportunities with horses. During horse time, girls participate in horse and barn care, as well as on- and off-horse lessons. Each girl has 12 or more hours of horse time each week at camp.
During each two-week session at Camp Northwoods, girls at the higher skill levels are offered an optional overnight or three-day horse trip/camp-out.
Similar to the Counselor-in-Training program, Wrangler-in-Training allows older girls to share their love of horses with younger campers. Learn more about our Leadership Camp options.
