Weekends at EVR are so much fun!! On Saturday the two-week girls all got to ride bareback!! Which meant that all the girls got to ride a horse without a saddle and learn how to balance and control their horse without the support of a saddle! They loved it just as much! When the two-week girls were riding bareback the four-weekers got to practice their drill team on their horses all together. This gave them a long period of time to focus on working together and making it perfect! They are so excited to show all of the two week girls what they have been working on!

On Saturday they also did a range of fun activities in rotations, which included show grooming, making our own dream catchers and playing other games! In the afternoon we have a rotation of Slip ‘n Slide, Drip Drip Drop, an obstacle course, and volleyball – which all of the girls really enjoyed because some were activity and some were refreshing in the warm weather!

Saturday evenings at EVR mean only one thing: EAT WITH YOU FACE NIGHT!! As a tradition, on Saturday we had no silverware and everybody got to eat their spaghetti and meatballs with their face! All of the girls found it hilarious and were covered in spaghetti sauce! After this we had a super secret evening activity for the girls: a dance party!! This was a chance for the girls to show off all their new dance moves they had learnt in the previous days! We also spilt the room in two and had a dance off and a sing off between to two teams, which was super fun!

On Sunday the girls got to sleep in and have a delicious brunch! Along with more commonly eaten brunch foods we had WAFFLES AND ICE-CREAM!!! Which of course, everyone loved, because that meant covering it all in your own choice of delicious toppings!! Sunday’s at EVR are theme days!! The best part of the day was that Mustang Village (the younger girls horse camp at main camp) came over to spend theme day with us!! At brunch we announced our theme for the day! FINDING NEMO!! Our whole day was based around Finding Nemo and everybody was put into teams to find Nemo on a scavenger hunt! After this they had rotations of different activities including: seagulls take flight, building a coral reef in the creek, swordfish where different campers are blindfolded and they have to find each other using a noodle. As well as this we played volleyball with water balloons, which of course was so much fun! Last night as our evening program we all played a huge game of USB where the girls merged some of their teams from earlier!

Although everybody loved the exciting weekend, the girls were also so excited to be back to our regular schedule after the fun weekend, because that means they get to ride their horse again!! The girls are now into their second week of camp – it’s going way too quickly!!! Today the girls have been learning about different horse careers, as well as grooming and tacking, or untacking their horses! Last week half of the girls got to groom and tack their own horses before their lessons, and the other girls got to untack after their lesson. This week we have flipped the schedule so that everybody gets to help and try everything!

Not only are we busy with our horses, but we’ve been boating at farm camp, swimming in the stream, and going on adventure hikes today already!! This evening we are having a challenge night at the Farm, which is going to be so much fun!!
