Girls’ Horse Camp


Girls' Horse Camp

Camp Sankanac horse camps are run by equestrian professionals Erin Hails (Brick Lane Stables) & Diana Shirk (Silver Lining Farm) and their experienced staff. Erin and Diana both have many years of experience and look forward to working with the campers each summer in improving their confidence, knowledge and experience around horses and in their riding skills. Horse campers are sure to get plenty of time with the horses, not only riding and having a blast, but also learning important riding and horse care techniques. Our overnight horse camp programs give campers the best of both worlds…lots of time with the horses (individualized and group riding instruction, trail riding…even creek stomping with your horse!!)… AND all the best of Sankanac (Bible study, pool, boats, waterslide, crafts, camp store and more!).

Horse Campers will be housed together at our Parker House facility. Campers ages 8-11 will be housed in one bedroom and campers ages 12-16 will be housed in another. Each bedroom will have a Horse Camp Counselor and Erin will oversee camper life at the Parker House. At the barn, Erin and her skillful instructors will train the campers in grooming, tack, feeding, general care, equine anatomy, safety, riding instruction and much more. Erin does a great job incorporating fun games and a wide variety of activities in an educational and safe setting. Campers of all riding experience are welcome! First time or advanced campers will grow in skill under Erin’s professional and nurturing instruction. If you’re looking for an awesome, affordable, overnight summer horse camp experience, look no more! Space is very limited!
