2023 Summer Pony Camp: Knights and Ladies

This camp is full!

Here at CYC we love all things equine and we want to share this love with you – learn to ride, do cool activities on your horses and make new friends.

This Pony Camp will teach the basics of horse care and horseback riding. Daily activities will include: safety around horses, grooming, tacking, leading horses, and horseback riding. The girls will learn respect and responsibility through hands on care while learning about all aspects of horses. All based around our years theme of Knights and Ladies.

Each camper is assigned their own horse to ride and care for the entire week. This “ownership” opportunity makes the riding experience more rewarding and introduces campers to the responsibilities and joys of having their own horse.

Important to know before enrolling

  • This very popular camp is limited to 12 spaces
  • Our horse and pony camps are enrolled on the basis of riding ability (rather than first enrolled first in). This is because we only have so many horses suited to each rider ability level so can take only so many beginner riders, only so many intermediate riders and only so many experienced riders.

2022 Adventure Camp

CANCELLED

Unfortunately, we have regrettably decided to cancel the Adventure Camp over Waitangi Weekend. 

 
This weekend long camp had a large component of off-site activities organised using outside contractors (e.g. scuba diving, museum visits, pools, etc.). All these external providers have elected to enforce vaccine passes so it would be impossible to visit them without all campers and leaders being double vaccinated which was a large unknown. 
 

A full refund or credit will be provided to those campers that have already paid their deposit or in full for camp.
