The Girl Scouts of the Jersey Shore’s day camps offer a unique and highly regarded model for our summer horse sessions. We provide our campers with a progression-based program that allows girls to focus on expanding their knowledge and acquiring and growing their equestrian skills.
Bus transportation to and from the Double K Ranch in Forked River will be provided at no additional cost to you! In addition to their equestrian activities, girls will also enjoy a craft project and have their lunch before returning to camp. Time and weather permitting, girls can look forward to a refreshing swim in the lake, and an opportunity to visit the trading post for some ice cream!
Our campers are evaluated at the start of each week. They are placed into small groups, according to their abilities, and our professional staff will design each session so that every girl is taught at the appropriate level. Progress reports will be sent home via email at the start and end of each week, so that you may recognize your child for her progress along the way!
Girls will learn a myriad of skills, including exploring the anatomy and physiology of the horse, mounting, tacking, grooming, and of course, riding skills! Most importantly, the Girl Scouts of the Jersey Shore equestrian program teaches girls the principles of horsemanship; discipline, understanding, empathy, compassion, self-control, and dedication.
