Registration is now open for 2023 summer camp!

Summer Camp

Paul Cates Stable offers day camps during the summer break. Our campers spend the day in a variety of activities focused on learning the basics of horseback riding & caring for the horses.

Camp Activities

As part of the routine operation of the stable, the children are often treated by a visit from a veterinarian or farrier. Our camp attendee’s are supervised by at least two riding instructors during the riding lessons & adult supervision is constantly provided.

There is no riding experience necessary to attend camp!


Cost: $500 per week, Mon - Fri
Drop Off: 7-8 AM
Pick Up: 5-6 PM

Due to horse feed and labor costs, we had to adjust our pricing this year. We were able to keep the same, full day hours to ensure we have the best drop off and pick up times in the area! We can't wait to see you this year!

Discount of $25 for each additional week of camp after the first!​
