NEW this Summer!
Introducing our Vermont Summer Exploration Camp offered June 30 - August 31, for two age groups: 6 - 9 and 10 -13 years of age
Our Vermont Exploration Summer Camp will provide children with an amazing summer experience!
Learn New Activities: They’ll participate in a variety of activities including horseback riding/pony rides, swimming, tennis, boating, horse care, nature walks, yoga and so much more. Your child will try new activities that he or she may never have had a chance to do before.
Gain Life Skills: It’s never too early to encourage our children to learn skills in communication, creativity, leadership, responsibility and team work. At camp, children develop these skills to help them with the trials and challenges of daily life.
Build Self-Confidence: Children acquire new skills at camp, and they watch themselves improve each day. Our camp staff is supportive and encouraging.
Unplug: Camp focuses on participation and relationships, rather than solitary entertainment. We encourage our campers to be active and to take a much-needed break from media by participating in fun activities.
Have Fun: Most important of all, Exploration Summer Camp provides a safe environment for kids to play and to just be kids.

RETURNING this Summer!
Our Children's Summer Horsemanship Camp is very popular with our young guests who are specifically interested in "everything horses". It is a fun learning experience and a memorable part of their summer vacation. The program is offered July and August for children ages 6 - 12. Advance reservations are required. We strongly suggest booking when making your room reservations since space is limited.
At the Resort's Children's Summer Horsemanship Camp, children learn horsemanship and how to ride in a fun and safe environment. Professional, experienced instructors teach our campers control and handling skills as well as the essentials of grooming and saddling. Campers gain a basic understanding of horse care, safety around the horses and the responsibility involved in owning a horse. In addition, youngsters have the opportunity to experience nature hikes and to enjoy the resort's private lakefront beach. Campers need to arrive at the Activity Center at 9AM to allow time for parents to complete the necessary paperwork. Parents should return to the Activity Center promptly at 3:30PM to pick up the children.
Our Children's Summer Horsemanship Camp is for children ages 6 - 12 years and is available Monday through Friday 9:30 AM - 3:00PM in July and August. Space may be reserved on a daily or weekly basis. Weekly - $450.00 per child; Daily - $125.00 per child
Campers are requested to bring or wear jeans or other long pants, close toed shoes or riding boots. Helmets are required and will be provided. They should also bring swimsuits, towels, and beach type clothing, and shorts if weather permits. In the event of rain or if it is predicted campers should bring suitable rain gear, as we will ride in light rain and want them to be prepared.
