Camp Program


Kensington Equestrian Center's camp program introduces children to the joys and responsibilities of horse ownership. In addition to learning how to ride a horse or enhancing their riding skills, children at our camp program learn all aspects of horse care such as feeding, grooming, bathing and problem solving.

Kensington Equestrian Center strives to maintain a small ratio of campers to counselors, allowing for special attention while preserving safety in a group setting. Our counselors are all experienced riders and a staff person certified in first aid and CPR is on site during our camp weeks and "mini" camps.
