Camp's Description

Program Bonnie Castle Riding Camp features instruction at all levels in Hunters, Jumpers, Equitation, Dressage, Combined Training and Equine Studies. At the beginning of each session, the camper's ability is evaluated to determine her instructional needs and to help place her in an appropriate group. At the end of each session, all campers participate in shows with equitation and hunter classes. Each girl's daily schedule is supervised by the residential staff. Girls are busy, but can also find spare moments to read a book, take a swim or play a game of tennis. Campers are encouraged to take advantage of and to enjoy the outdoors. Bonnie Castle campers have two daily mounted lessons and have semi-private lessons each week with one of the Camp's experienced and dedicated instructors. The Camp's goal is to help girls develop and improve their riding skills through instruction, practice and competition appropriate for the beginning rider as well as for the more experienced young horsewoman. In addition to the intensive riding program, two additional electives are offered: Equine Studies and Activity (arts, drama, games or sports). Academic Tutoring is available in English and math. A creative and cooperative atmosphere is stressed in every aspect of camp life. All activities, including field trips, are carefully and closely supervised by the Camp's superb counselors. Facilities The School which was first established in 1869 took residence on the current campus in 1930 has one of the finest and most impressive equestrian facilities in the Northeast. Stabling for 60 horses is available in two separate barns. The indoor riding arena complex features a 100x200 indoor competition arena with a heated viewing lounge and an adjacent 70x120 indoor warm up arena. Outdoors are two sand rings, a Derby Field with permanent European-style derby jumps, a cross-country course for beginner novice through preliminary levels and an extensive bridle path which rings the picturesque campus. A wash stall, two tack rooms, laundry facilities and lockers are available for campers' use.
