We strive to teach all of our campers basic horsemanship. Campers not only learn how to ride they learn the basics of colors, horse care, herd dynamics and much more. During their riding time we make sure that all campers learn how to control their own horse and not just follow in line. We do this through fun games and exercises. We've found that beginning campers are most successful starting out following in a line on the first day, but that doesn't mean that we don't require them to demonstrate 360 degree turns navigating obstacles on their own and other independent skills. Children create life-long friendships through horse camp, not only with their human buddies but with the animals as well. It is truly priceless to see the relationships between children and their favorite pony pal. These experiences are ones that are treasured!
For those attending Camp Switch Willo for the first time… Information about all aspects of the Camp Switch Willo life can be found in this guide. We want to make their camp experience as easy as possible for your child and family!
For our returning campers… Please take the time to review this guide. We are always making updates that affect both campers and parents. While the transition to summer camp is typically easier for those returning to camp Switch Willo, it is still important to prepare your camper for any changes they could expect while here.
