Horsemanship Camp enriches a camper’s life

450 horsemanship 0588Warm Beach Summer Horsemanship Camp aims to give campers a fun experience while learning and improving their horsemanship skills. The week is packed with horse related activities such as lessons, trail rides, showmanship, and vaulting. Campers also groom, saddle and care for their horse all week, giving them the experience of owning a horse. We believe that riding and caring for a horse develops life-skills of responsibility, faithfulness, diligence and communication.

In order to offer maximum value in riding instruction, we have a graduated curriculum that allows for various levels of instruction based on the rider’s skill. The instruction follows the guidelines of the international organization, Certified Horsemanship Association (CHA). Warm Beach Camp riding staff are certified and receive training through CHA each year. For a detailed description of Warm Beach Camp’s Horsemanship curriculum, click here.

Horses and horse-related activities fill most of the camper’s day. They take some time out for other fun activities like swimming, climbing tower, and cabin time. Nightly chapels relate horses to our faith journey and demonstrate how the relationship between horse and rider illustrates our relationship with God, the master trainer.

Warm Beach Horsemanship Camp enriches a camper’s life physically, relationally, spiritually and emotionally. It’s a time of new discovery, improved skills, friendships and teamwork. Kids may come for the horses, but they leave with so much more!

About a year ago, a wonderful 85-year-old grandmother entered my life. She approached us with the interest of taking riding lessons after many years of being out of the saddle. Inez grew up with horses and even raised a horse from a foal to his last day on earth. Her daughter was involved in a local Pony Club and Inez had ridden until her kids moved on to adulthood. She deeply missed riding and the bond that comes with riding ...

Hearing from God

The past year has been difficult, bringing physical challenges, relationship losses, and employment transitions. My husband and I came to Warm Beach Camp & Conference Center for several reasons. One of the most important was to hear from God. One of the things I appreciate most about Warm Beach, is it provides the perfect environment to listen to God’s voice. I hear His laughter in the sound of children at play and see His joy on the faces of little ...

Trust in Hope

Hope in the context of the Bible is not the same as hope in the context of our current culture. Our culture often uses hope as wishful thinking, "I hope so…." Biblical hope, on the other hand, is an assurance of a promise that will come to pass! Down at the Stables, we have another "Hope" I'd like you to get to know. A large, beautiful, gentle giant of a draft horse named Hope. As an equine partner in our ...
