Riding Instructors

Located in the Mountains of Western North Carolina for 78 years, we emphasize outdoor activities such as horseback riding, hiking, kayaking, canoeing, sailing, mountain biking, and rock climbing. We believe in fun, adventure, safety, and great instruction.

We are separate boys and girls camps located in the beautiful mountains of western North Carolina. Our program is outdoor adventure based. Our riding program includes 30-35 school horses, 4 rings, several fields set up for classes and trails. Your responsibilities will include (but aren’t limited to!) instructing small group lessons, help plan  and supervise special barn events, participate and lead (if qualified) riding overnights, and perform the duties required of a cabin counselor.

Our program is non-competitive, which encourages experimentation, and non-regimented, which fosters self-direction. Our strengths lie in the quality of our staff and the depth of our program. We value diversity, attracting campers from all 50 states and several other countries. If you would like to speak to someone about camp, please don’t hesitate to call us.
