Top 10 Reasons GES camp ranks high with campers & parents!  
10. Our camp groups are small (10 to 12 campers/session) & individualized.
9. Your camper isn't led around for a week by another kid like most camps. They actually have lessons!
8. Beginning campers are taught the basics of how to Stop, Go & Steering while working on their position.
7. Campers lessons are taught by a USHJA certified trainer and assistants.
6. Advanced Walk/Trotters master steering skills, position changes and balance. 
5. Advanced campers work on cantering, ground-poles and level appropriate jumps.
4. We check for retention of knowledge from riding lessons & off horse skills during each camp week.  
3. Campers in all our programs are required to learn about basic hands on, horse care and stable management.
2. We have a great camper progression rate, each session or year our campers attend they are building on their skills.

COVID: Campers  should have a mask and they are required to wear them if we catch them coughing/sneezing at camp or a parent would like them to. When around others try to not hang all over each other and acknowledge social distancing. Each camper must have a personal hand sanitizer to carry on them at all times. Hand washing will be monitored and gloves are a good idea. If campers are sick please keep them home.
