Equestrian summer Camps

Wesleyan Equestrian Center offers educational and fun summer opportunities for girls and boys 5-18 years old. Our camp programs teach riding and horsemanship – and so much more! Learning horse skills promotes confidence, teamwork, responsibility and leadership in a fun and rewarding environment. We will continue to follow campus-specific guidelines from the CDC for COVID-19 and make any necessary adjustments to our protocols. Summer Camp Flyer download.
