Summer Youth Horse Camps

Check back in 2022 for the return of Horse Camps!

Ride a horse back to a simpler time with no electronic devices, business, or rushing from here to there...

Come enjoy old west traditions while riding cowboy style in the footsteps of our pioneers and the Nez Perce. Explore on horseback the rich history of the beautiful Wallowa Valley and surrounding mountains in Northeast Oregon - a region often referred to as the Alps of Oregon.

Gain confidence as you challenge yourself to try new things.

As the sun sets in the west gather around the campfire and get to know each other sharing stories, worshiping, eating s'mores, hearing cowboy poetry, and singing! See God revealed through nature, animals, and people as you each realize you are loved and made special by God.

All Horse Campers Will Receive:

  •  High quality safety instruction in horse care and riding skills by experienced wranglers and trained camp staff. No previous horseback experience is necessary.
  • Plenty of instruction time in the outdoor ranch arena before trail riding.
  • Lots of time each day with their assigned horse.
  • Participation in horse riding games to develop confidence and skills.
  • Fun outdoor games, campfires, Christian programming, and activities back at camp.
  • Delicious meals and snacks.

Feel free to glance through these images of Horse Camps from the past!
