At check in on the first day of camp parents will be asked to review the allergy list and provide any additional information at that time. If there are serious allergies that require extra care we ask that consult with the Camp Director prior to completing your registration to insure that we can accommodate any special requests.
Q: What do they need to bring with them to camp each day?
A: Horse Camp - Horse and tack are provided, but campers are expected to have appropriate dress for riding. Hard soled shoes, boots with heels 1 inch or less are preferred. No flips or sandals or open toed shoes. Shorts are ok for all activities, although a change of long pants for riding is highly recommended. Bug spray and sunscreen recommended. No dangling jewelry (necklaces, chains, hoop earrings) will be permitted when handling and riding horses, so please leave it at home! Riding helmets will be available and are required while mounted. Hats are recommended as activities will take place both outdoors and indoors.
Girl Power Camp – Each camper should wear comfortable clothing that is appropriate for both indoor and outdoor activities. Tennis shoes are required. No open toe sandals or flip flops are allowed as campers will be in the barn with horses during part of the camp and must wear protective shoes. Campers should bring a water bottle with their name on it, a towel and sunscreen. We suggest that students arrive each day with sunscreen already applied and have extra with them to apply throughout the day. Lotion not aerosol sprays are suggested. Midway College will provide sunscreen but a waiver form must be completed in order for us to apply.
