How to Build a Resume That Stands Out Visually To Help Your Teen Land Their First Job

Chastain Horse Park Summer Day Camp For Kids


If you are looking for a summer camp for your adventurous child we highly recommend Chastain Horse Park summer day camp.

This summer camp is open to kids ages 7 through 14, from beginners to advanced. The camps include activities like grooming and tacking horses, bareback riding and learning about horses in general. There’s more information about the camps on the Chastain website, too.

This year they are introducing Pony Pals camp for children age 4 to 6. Activities are specifically geared to this age group. Chastain Horse Park camps have a fun-filled atmosphere, full of team playing where students are able to develop confidence, leadership, and friendships. Summer Camp at Chastain Horse Park is truly a blast! 

They have a well-ventilated covered ring that protects riders from the sun at all hours of the day. We also have a newly built “party barn” for arts, crafts, lunch, breaks and fun. With over 30 school horses and ponies, we have amazing animals for all ages, abilities, and personalities. No more than 12 kids per session (Pony Pals 5 per session) and a 3:1 counselor/camper ratio (Pony Pals 2:1) ensures attention to safety. They also limit 6 riders at the same time, further ensuring safety and proper instruction. 

Weekly Summer Camp Activities Include:
  • Grooming
  • Tacking
  • Bathing
  • English Riding
  • Clipping whiskers
  • Lunging
  • Bareback riding
  • Grazing
  • Parts of the horse
  • Parts of the saddle

Chastain Hore Park is a nonprofit because everything from its summer camps and other programs benefits their therapeutic riding and hippo-therapy program. These programs are designed to help those with a variety of disabilities including ADD, autism, cerebral palsy, brain injuries and Down syndrome, just to name a few.

There are several have openings in the therapeutic program, and there are scholarships available. Chastain Horse Park are constantly in need of horse donations and volunteers to help with the therapeutic lessons, and have regular lesson programs as well.
