Leader of the Pack

Junior high and high school students are poured into by experienced wranglers and passionate counselors for six days of Advanced Riders Camp. Students develop confidence in horsemanship as they receive instruction in the arena, vaulting, horse science and on trail rides. Future WITs will be encouraged to practice leadership skills through leading pieces of lessons with help from staff. Evenings are filled with times of worship, sharing and thought provoking teachings.

This week is also a prerequisite for the WIT Program (grades 10-12).
