Spring break from school can be a fun time for children to relax and play, but it can also be a difficult time for working parents who need to find childcare while school is closed. In addition to its traditional Spring Break Day Camp, Frost Valley also offers Spring Break Horse Day Camp, which takes place April 15-19 from 9 a.m. – 4 p.m. This camp is available for children between the ages of four and seven who would like to learn more about horses.

Spring Break Horse Day Camp will be held at Frost Valley, which is located at 2000 Frost Valley Road in Claryville. This engaging program gives children in Pre-K through 2nd grade, a chance to learn new equestrian skills, reunite with camp friends, and make new ones!

Campers will spend half the day learning about grooming, horse care, and riding horses. The remainder of the day will be filled with traditional camp activities like arts and crafts, games, climbing, the Flying Squirrel, and more. This camp is perfect for campers who have never ridden a horse before as well as campers with plenty of experience around horses!

Horseback riding is weather dependent, but campers should come ready to ride, wearing long pants that cover the ankle, and sturdy sneakers or boots. Parents are encouraged to send their child with a change of clothes and a water bottle.

The rate is $295 per child for five days. Tuition includes lunch and transportation from select locations at no additional cost. Local busing is available from the Monticello Government Building, Ideal Food Basket in Liberty, the Tri-Valley School, the Neversink Garage, Big Indian Park, and Claryville Church.

A limited number of spots are available for both Spring Break Horse Day Camp and the traditional Spring Break Day Camp so interested parents are urged to register their child right away to ensure their spot. Visit our Spring Break Horse Day Camp page or call 845-985-2291 ext. 306 for more information or to register your child.
