Day Camp Sessions 2019

10th year at studio/ranchette near Enochs High in Modesto, CA



  • Day camp choices include horses, arts and crafts, and swimming
  • Foosball and air hockey games at break time, and more.

We provide an encouraging atmosphere where children will grow in group relationships, courtesy, good manners and respect as well as creative exploration.  


   Our Unique Camps: 

Horse Lessons and Swimming 

Arts and crafts with all materials provided


I have found that children seem to tire by the end of the week so this year we are trying alternatives to a week long camp. Plus, I have added some shorter camps to help with costs.

Scroll to see all the choices below:

2-Day Horse Camp

July 10 - 11

9:30 am to 12:30 pm

If you have a child who is interested in horses or thinks they want a horse, now is your chance for them to learn what is involved. If you take riding lessons, this camp lets you experience things you do not during a riding lesson.

Join us for this delightful experience that includes safety around horses, grooming, one private horse introduction and then group riding lessons, horsemanship, barn chores, and horse care including bathing. Plus take home information to remember horse colors, horse vocabulary, and more.  

Based on 4-H and the Certified Horsemanship Association standards

$120 for the 2 days
Suggested ages 7-16

Parent and Young Child Day

July 22  3 - 5 pm

Bring your 3 - 6 year old for their own camp time. We will explore paint and printmaking with parents helping their child. 

You are invited to stay and cool off in our pool after the art, under your own supervision. (Length of art time will depend on the interest of the children.)
