2021 Summer Pony Camp

  • 10.30am Monday 18th January - 2:30pm Friday 22nd January 2021
  • Girls in school years 8 to 11 during 2021
  • $280 if using a CYC Pony (discounts may apply)
  • $220 if you bring your own suitable horse (discounts may apply)

About this Camp

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

This Pony Camp will teach the basics of horse care and horseback riding through fun activities based around our theme of the Olympic Games.

Camp Features

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.

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 18 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.

  • Girls in school years 10 to 13 during 2021

  • $220 if you bring your own suitable horse (discounts may apply)

Lush green hills…

Cool fresh forests…

Rolling sand dunes and crisp salt air….

What’s the one thing that could make these beautiful vistas better?

2020 Summer Pony Camp

Cancellation (23rd March 2020):

We regret to inform you that our 2020 Pony Camp that was to be held in a few weeks time has now been cancelled. 
 
As a camp we have been closely monitoring the Ministry of Health guidelines and the quickly evolving situation. Events like camps were fairly uncertain with the nationwide upgrade of the Government’s Alert Level nationwide to Level 2 on Saturday. And now with the alert level moving to Level 4 this coming Wednesday we can no longer run any events at CYC Waihola for the foreseeable future. 
 
We can only hope and pray that the situation around the globe and in NZ improves soon.

For I am sure that neither death nor life, nor angels nor rulers, nor things present nor things to come, nor powers, nor height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord.
