SUMMER CAMP 2020
ROYAL CANADIAN RIDING ACADEMY SUMMER 2020 HORSEBACK RIDING CAMP
Are you looking for an amazing experience this summer? Our summer camps offer a unique and engaging opportunity for kids from the ages of 6 – 15 at all levels of riding. At RCRA we have the ability to tailor the camper experience to each person’s riding level. Join us for our day camp or overnight camp which includes two riding lessons a day, horsemanship skills, basic horse first aid, games, crafts and much more
Our goal at the RCRA is to introduce the students to riding and the care of horses and to continue to enhance those skills. Our standards are aligned with the Ontario Equestrian Association and our riding lesson programs cater to a wide range of students and abilities/disciplines. If you want to ride competitively, recreationally, or therapeutically we will help you to meet your goals.
Group Custom Camps
Anyone wanting to come in for a custom equestrian program is welcome. Our office would be happy to set up a consultation to discuss your riding goals.
Our facility and staff can accommodate working towards any riding goal whether it be professional certification, showing, improving as a rider or (our favorite) having fun enjoying the animals, and spending time riding.
In all Camps
Our camp content is designed to fit around the level and age of the groups that are formed. The following is an example of some content campers can look forward to covering and is modified according to the lesson at the time.
“Bridle Wars” – Can you bridle any horse, anytime, anywhere with confidence, safety, and skill? If not then you have something to learn from this fun game!
“Track Wraps” – Everyone knows that it’s the race track folks that can polo, bandage, and boot horses like no one else! This is a stable management day you won’t find anywhere else!
What to bring:
SAFETY APPROVED RIDING HELMET. Helmets must be properly fitted and must meet A.S.T.M. standards. Rental helmets are available from us and we can assist in fitting.
SAFETY APPROVED, PROTECTIVE RIDING VEST. Vests must meet A.S.T.M. or B.E.T.A. safety standards and must be properly fitted. While this is currently not mandatory, we highly recommend it for any riders under the age of eighteen.

Long trousers that are stretchy or roomy enough to allow flexibility.
Jodhpurs, breeches and riding boots are, of course, desirable but not mandatory.
Most of our camps at RCRA include a meal program, as indicated in each camp’s registration form. However, we recommend that each camper is sent with lots of drinking water and a light snack weather they are on the meal program or not.
Please advise us if your child has any allergies.
