Our phenomenal Animal Specialty Day Camps combine the traditional fun of YMCA day camps with the more specialized skills and learning of our outside specialty camp providers or YMCA experts.
Animal Specialty Day Camp will allow your camper to get up close and personal with the Animal Kingdom through hands-on experiences and in-depth exploration of habitats.

Campers will receive four hours a day of basic horsemanship instruction. The camp will include a 30-minute riding lesson each day that will focus on walking, trotting, posting and guiding. Campers will be partnered up for the entire week to care for their horse throughout the week!
They'll learn about horse safety, equestrian careers, how to care for sick horses, how to identify different breeds and how to load a horse into a trailer. The following riding gear is required: riding boots or heavy leather, lace-up (no Velcro) tennis shoes and long pants (no shorts or capris). Required riding helmets will be provided.
