RIDING CAMPS


Summer Ranch Programs


Ranch Day Camp
AGES 8 - 16 | MON - FRI | COED

Ranch Day Camp gives campers the best of both worlds! They will spend the first part of their day at the ranch where they will enjoy horsemanship lessons, mounted lessons, trail rides, and assist with morning barn chores.  In the afternoon campers head up to main camp to enjoy traditional camp activities; archery, boating, climbing, swimming and much more.
 
Full Day Ranch Camp  
AGES 8 - 16 | MON - FRI | COED 

Full Day Ranch Camp is for riders that can’t get enough of the ranch and horses. This is a one-week session that stresses a more intensive riding schedule. Campers spend all day at the ranch with extra riding lessons and more hands-on responsibilities around the barn. You won’t want to miss this new experience for any level rider.
 
Mini Ranch
AGES 8-12 | SUN- WED | OVERNIGHT | COED

A great introduction for young campers who want to give camp a try but aren’t sure they can stay a full week yet.   We fit a week of excitement into just 4 days and 3 nights.  The Mini Ranch program lets campers between ages 8-12 experience the joy of caring for their own horse through daily riding and chores.   Campers go on a trail ride and take lessons on grooming and horse care.  Along with participating in the ranch program campers also experience traditional camp activities for a portion of their day.   

 
Ranch Overnight Camp 
AGES 8 - 16 | SUN - SAT | COED 

Grab your reins and lets hit the trail!  Ranch campers spend the week building the special bond that forms between horse and riders.  In addition to arena lessons and trail rides, each day campers will be learning to tack and groom horses, minor vet care, anatomy, breed specialties, feeding, and barn chores.  Our campers take pride in sharing the responsibility of caring for the herd of horses.  Our trained and experienced staff who know our horses intimately will ensure that campers are safe, comfortable and challenged regardless of the skills they bring with them.  Ranch campers will also join in activities with traditional camp when they aren’t at the ranch.  


Trail Blazers    **New Program** 
AGES 8 - 16 | SUN - SAT | COED 

Let’s saddle up and explore Camp Y-Noah’s 250+ scenic acres on the back of a trusty steed.  Trail Blazers is the perfect week for those campers who LOVE to trail ride!   Along with daily trail rides and horsemanship lessons, campers will follow the outline of the CHA Trail Guide program; learning how to care for themselves and their horse along the trail in all types of situations.  This camp is designed specifically to give campers a more in-depth horse experience— and after a long ride, campers will still have the opportunity to cool-off in our lake or participate in many other traditional camp activities.


Cross Rails    **New Program** 
AGES 8 - 16 | SUN - SAT | COED 

(Camper must meet pre-qualification to register)

 

Crossrails is specifically designed for those who ride in a lesson program at home, and are up for a challenging week of English and Western riding. The exercises during each lesson are designed to help fine-tune your position and communication with your horse, as well as improve your timing and athleticism over jumps.  With basic dressage incorporated into the flat work, you will take home tools that will not only help you with your horse for the week, but build you as a rider.

During the evening you will grow close to other campers who are just as dedicated to riding as you.  Together you will participate in a variety of camp programs; archery, canoeing, climbing, swimming and much more.  Please contact Camp Y-Noah for eligibility requirements. 


 

Rangers Apprentice (Full Immersion Camp)   **New Program** 
AGES 10-15 | SUN - SAT | COED 
 

The Rangers are the King’s secret service and ‘intelligence’ force.  Often thought of as being magicians and misunderstood the Rangers have stood in the way of disaster more times than can be counted.  As the King’s lands have grown so will his need for good men and women.  Join the ranks of the King’s Rangers.  Wynoah Fief, one of the King’s new outposts needs your help. 

In your Ranger training you will follow the Ranger’s rigorous training schedule which will include horsemanship where apprentices will gain the basic skills of caring for and riding a horse.  Rangers will also receive weapons training.  Skill with a bow and arrow and throwing knives are essential to every Ranger.  All range training is done under the strict supervision of a silver leafed Ranger.  Camouflage, tracking, and backcountry skills are a must for all apprentices.  When the apprentice is ready, they will be taken to the Annual Ranger’s Gathering for testing.
