Eagle Creek Equestrian Center
Overnight Camp Info/Schedule

Visit our Forms page to fill out a camp registration form and register today while there are still openings! 

Camp times are 8:00am Monday - 6:00 pm Saturday.

Cost is $500 per week for regular registration.

Campers signed up by April 15, 2003 will receive a $50 discount per week.

Campers who have their own horses may bring them for an additional stall fee of $100 for the week.

Payment is due at time of registration.  Because of the limited spacing, your spot is not secured until the fee is received by Eagle Creek.  And the fee is nonrefundable unless management is unable to fulfill its obligations through the camp. 

Campers who sign up for both weeks will have different assignments for the second week.

There will be a maximum of two riders per horse each week.

Students may purchase an "Eagle Creek Equestrian Center Summer with the Horses" T-shirt with their picture on the front.  Check with management for details.

All Students who come all six days will receive a horsemanship certificate.

Campers must have their own riding helmet, riding boots, and grooming kit.  See management about purchasing these.  For campers who will not continue lessons or who do not have their own horse, management may buy these items back for a reduced price at the end of camp.
