Equine Programs

Horses, Ponies, Small Animals, & More




Our Herd

YMCA Storer Camps is the year-round home of more than 50 horses. Our horses enjoy their leisure time in our 4 pastures, and work at both of our barns, providing rides and teaching opportunities to thousands of kids every year. During the summer our horses provide trail rides, horse lessons, and companionship to our Youth and Ranch campers. When the school year rolls around our horses become teachers, helping Outdoor Education students learn about mammals up close and personal. 




Ranch Camp

The Ranch program is designed for campers ages 13 - 16 that can't get enough of our equine friends. Ranch campers will test their skills, care for the herd, and grow as riders and people. Side effects of Ranch camp include greater respect for mammals, a greater sense of confidence, and stories to last a lifetime.

For Summer 2020, we will NOT be offering horse lessons or trail rides for Rangers, Pioneers, Explorers and Trailblazers to prevent mixing of cabins at the horse barn.  Campers will have opportunities to visit the horse barn with their cabin groups. 


Ranch campers will be living on the North Center but WILL BE taking horse lessons during the week. 



Trail Rides
