Camp Midway is offered on the beautiful campus of Midway College in Midway, Kentucky. Children will enjoy their time on our 200 acre campus and parents will enjoy knowing their kids are in a safe environment, having fun and learning at the same time while making wonderful memories and new friends.
Have you ever wondered how a horse thinks? Does learning to care for and ride a horse appeal to you? Then Midway College’s “Between the Ears” equine camp is for you! Campers will learn the basics about how to care for a horse, and will be involved in both riding and non-riding activities. Structured age appropriate activities will encourage campers to gain a new perspective about horses. Riding experience is not necessary as camp activities are designed for the beginner rider. Through a combination of riding exercises, basic equine care, and other instructional activities, campers will learn to work in partnership with the horse. No experience required.

Would you like to improve your riding skills? Or even bring your horse to camp and work with a college-level coach? Then Midway College’s “Advanced Horsemanship” equine camp is the one you should join. (Boarding rates available upon request) Campers will advance their riding skills under the instruction of Midway College’s coaches. There will be additional unmounted activities that will improve overall horse management skills. For this camp, riding experience is required. Campers must be riding at the intermediate to advanced level, and be able to control a horse at the walk, trot, and canter independently for an extended period of time. Campers must have a minimum of 6 months of weekly riding lessons, or the equivalent. Campers may be able to board their personal horse for the week of camp at the college’s facilities (for an additional fee), or they may choose to ride the college’s horses instead. Individuals interested in bringing their own horse will need to fill out supplemental forms.
