Specialty Camps

YEP! 2019 - Horseback Riding

Horseback Riding (Ages 8-12)

Designed especially for those with little or no prior experience, learn how to ride as well as care for and groom a horse. Each day, you’ll take turns riding, grooming and learning more about our equine friends including the parts of a horse. In-between, you’ll even do themed crafts. Campers must wear Velcro® or tie shoes, socks, long pants, t-shirt (no spaghetti straps) and a riding or bicycle helmet. Safety restrictions dictate a maximum weight of 150 pounds. Note: This camp runs for three days and meets at Huntoon Stables in North Aurora.

Get in on the act this summer. Aspiring performers can make new friends, gain confidence and improve stage presence in this fun and supportive camp presented by Yorkville’s Fox Country Players.

No prior experience is necessary to participate in this camp. Two tickets to the performance are included with registration!
