Summer has officially drawn to a close – the campers are gone, most of the staff are gone, and we have settled into the fall season. As we move into the fall and winter, Camp Sealth is excited to announce our newest program involving year-round horseback riding!
On Saturdays and Sundays during September and October, Camp Sealth is offering full day Western riding workshops. The day runs from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., and includes a group riding lesson plus an interactive ground lesson, and helping with barn chores like grooming, saddling and feeding. The cost is $50 per person and transportation from the ferries is provided.
The program is open to beginner and intermediate riders in grades 3 and up. Advanced riders in grades 8+ can register as Junior Riding Staff to get more individualized attention, plus help teach younger riders.
There are 8 slots available for each workshop day; although a couple of dates have already filled, there are still plenty of open spaces. If the program is successful through October, we plan to offer these workshops again in the spring.
More details and registration is on our website: www.campsealth.org/horseworkshops. You can also view short bios of the 6 horses who are currently residing at camp.
We kicked off the first weekend September 17 and 18 with 9 participants. Everyone who attended had a great time, and most have already signed up for more!
