A week that flies by

Junior Day Camp offers a safe and well-supervised environment for children from the ages 5–9 yrs old which is filled with a wide variety of activities to make each day exciting for children of all interests. Campers enjoy fun group games, swimming and water games, a Bible story time and, of course, horseback riding. Depending upon the child’s age and abilities, they will enjoy a pony ride or get a horseback riding lessons. We provide a well-balanced meal for lunch as well as two snacks (am and pm). The days just fly by for the campers and many want to stay longer when it is time to go home. That is when we know we have accomplished our objective.

Senior Day Camp offers a safe and well supervised environment for campers from the ages 10–16 which is filled with a wide variety of activities to make each day exciting for campers of all interests. In the mornings, campers have the opportunity to rotate through the activity centers which include horseback riding, archery, riflery, crafts or an outing to our Trout Lake property nearby.  In the afternoon, campers are split into teams to play team sports and participate in some creative challenges. Every day, the campers hear a bible story before heading to the lunch that Parkside provides. In the afternoon, campers can select a snack from our Tuck (Cantine) shop. The days just fly by for the campers and many want to stay longer when it is time to go home. Arrival is at 8:30 am and pick up is at 4:30 pm. We have daycare service available if needed.

During your online registration, you may have noticed an additional $5 fee, bringing your total bill to $240 for junior campers and $260 for senior campers. This $5 is for the rental of the equestrian riding helmet. Due to association and insurance regulations, we must ensure that each child is equipped with a certified and unexpired riding helmet. If your child owns a CERTIFIED, UNEXPIRED and PROPER-FITTING riding helmet, please inform us via email. Please send the helmet with your child to camp. Once our riding staff have verified that your helmet falls under regulation qualifications, you will be refunded the $5 rental charge.
