Horse Lovers Camp Overview Grades 3-12 $499
What is Horse Lovers Camp?
Saddle up pardner’ camp is just around the bend. If you're a camper who loves horses, then choose Horse Lovers with your favorite Ohio Summer Camp. When you choose Horse Lovers you'll start each day the way any horse enthusiast would want; taking trail rides among some of the area’s best scenery. On top of that you will receive a great introduction to western riding classes in the riding ring and some horse sense lessons too. So kick up your heels and come enjoy some big western fun at Pleasant Hill Outdoor Camp.
What do I do the rest of the day?
Each day begins around the flag pole where we raise the American flag and recite the pledge followed by Morning Watch in our amphitheater with the devotional thought for the day. After a hearty breakfast you will head to the stables for your daily trail ride and riding lesson. After a delicious lunch the whole camp heads to some much needed chill time in your air conditioned cabin, then on our newly improved beach front for some fun in the sun including swimming, tubing on the lake, canoeing and more followed by. Before dinner campers are able to choose from a wide range of electives such as archery, rock wall, mountain biking, vertical play pen, zip line, fishing, slip n slide and more. Or you can simply chill by the snack shack with a treat and maybe share a game of checkers or carpet ball with a friend. Evenings are marked by an “all camp” large group game then flag lowering ceremony. Our day ends with a fireside complete with skits, games and all of your favorite traditional camp songs. It is during our evening fireside that you’ll get to know God in a new and fresh way and learn that he loves you without condition or limitation. We’ll show you a new way to look at who you really are and we think you’ll like what you see!
