Summer Camps

COVID-19 Update: May 8, 2020

In compliance with the Government of BC's Restart Plan, all of our scheduled summer camps will be going ahead.

We are busy putting procedures in place to maintain smaller groups and physical distancing where possible, and to respect the protective measures specified in the BC COVID-19 Go-Forward Management Strategy (PDF, 634KB) .

To keep everyone pandemic-safe, there are a few changes to our normal camp procedures. As almost all activities will take place in fresh air outdoors, we are not requiring the use of masks. Our focus will be on frequent handwashing and sanitizing, limiting contact with others, encouraging physical distancing, and having outdoor fun wherever possible. We will be placing your children into groups for the week with no more than 4 other kids, and most activities will be done in those small groups.

DROP-OFF PROCEDURES

You may drop off your child up to 20 minutes before the start of camp. Come to the gate at 6767 Balaclava Street where our staff will greet you and direct your child to their individual group.

PICK-UP PROCEDURES

Please report to the gate no more than 20 minutes after the end of your camp session. We will radio your child's instructor and have them send your child to meet you at the gate.

VISITORS

To limit the number of people on the property, we will NOT be allowing parents/siblings to remain on the property during camps. No visitors at all are allowed on the farm between 9am and 4pm.

VERY Important Health Reminders

• If you or anyone in your household has been out of the province, or on an airplane, during the past 14 days, then please stay home and self-isolate.
• If your child shows any symptoms of illness, including a cough, they must not come to camp! If your child shows any symptoms of illness, we will isolate them immediately and have you come pick them up.
• If your child has a fever, or has recently had a fever, or is taking any medications such as Tylenol or Advil to prevent a fever, please keep them home.
• If your child is sick, has recently felt sick, or you think they may have been exposed to anything resembling a COVID-19 infection, please keep them home!
• If you need to cancel your child's camp for health reasons, we will make every attempt to place them into another camp, or arrange a refund, on a case-by-case basis. We do have waiting lists for most camps, so please let us know ASAP if your child will be unable to attend.

NOTE: The north-gate to the property, on West 51st Ave, is CLOSED for the summer. Please access the property from Balaclava Street.

Summer Pony Camp (for 6-12 year olds) CAD$425

Summer 2020 Pony Camps are now FULL. We recommend that you enroll in a FARM camp instead, and request to be put on a Waitlist to move to the Pony Camp.

Our camps are geared towards never-been-on-a-horse riders or beginner riders. Older children, or those who can already canter independently, might prefer our private lessons -- or try our YOUNG FARMER CAMPS.
Many children spend the whole day on the farm... riding half the day and farming half the day. Lunch time supervision is available.

Summer Pony Camp (for 3-5 year olds) CAD$350

ALL Preschool Camps are FULL for Summer 2020. Please do email us if you wish to be placed on a waiting list.

Preschool pony camp runs Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday. All campers will experience hands-on learning of how to feed and care for "their" pony (stable management), as well as the basics of horseback riding. On the last day of camp parents are invited to join in the fun.

Summer Farm Camp (for 6-12 year olds) CAD$299Purchase required to enroll

This isn't your typical day camp. It is a real, rustic farm experience where kids learn life and survival skills. Our Farm Educators are highly skilled, knowledgeable, engaging, and passionate.
