2021 Autumn Pony Camp

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 many fun activities.

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.

Fellowship Day – 29th August 2020

Come join us for our second fellowship day of 2020 

This is a day to get involved investing in camp. 

Whether you’re new to camp or a familiar face we would love you to join us on Saturday 29th August for a day of fellowship. Get to know some of our staff and long serving volunteers as we work around the camp together, getting some of the odd jobs done to better the camp. 

As it is still winter, we will still be running the day even if it is bad weather, as we have plenty of inside jobs needing to be done.

Plan for the day. 

  • Meet at camp at 10:00am (or at 9am if you want to attend our AGM) at the Main Lodge, have some morning tea then get stuck into it.

  • Lunch at 1:00pm. Either bring your own lunch or something to share – we’ll provide something simple and hot drinks.

  • Unless you have to head off, stay for some ‘Friendly Competition’ in Archery Tag and have a chance to have some fun together before the day finishes. 

What to bring...

If you are able please bring the following items:

  • Personal Safety Equipment: Safety Glasses, Gardening Gloves, Earmuffs,etc
  • Gardening Tools: Spades, Shovels, etc.
  • Any pruning gear you have.


Green thumb or not this is the perfect job to get out side and chat as you pull weeds.

Spring Cleaning

As Rapunzel from the Disney classic Tangled sings "nine a.m. the usual morning lineup. Start on the dusting & sweep till the bunk-rooms all clean. Polish & wax do windows & mop & shine up" There are plenty of different jobs needing to be done!


Try your hand at using 'giant gardening scissors' to prune the bushes and trees!

Who wouldn't want to do this?

This camp will require a good level of fitness. We are revitalising an old favourite. With the resurgence of cycle trails popping up over Otago we thought it might be time to bring back a new version of the CYC Cycle Tour Camp. 

 This camp is planned to take in sections of the Clutha Gold trail between Roxburgh and Lawrence followed by some more local rides near Waihola Not only will this camp take in some stunning Central Otago scenery and be a great time to catch up with some old friends but you will also get to try your hand at paddle boarding on Pinders Pond, plus lots of other cool down time activities.
