Who We Are

Sending your child to our equestrian summer camp in Maryland can be the perfect way to keep summer boredom away. Your kids will learn how to ride a horse and a whole lot more!

Our summer camps are designed for kids, 5 to 16 years of age. Located in idyllic surroundings, the camps are nothing less than a super-fun place for the kids.

For beginners... Our Instructors help beginners understand horses in day camp. What students find at our summer camps is a "hands-on" experience with proper grooming and horse behavior/nutrition instruction along with two daily riding lessons (one hour each, AM and PM). Our lessons are the foundation of the summer camp experience and it is complimented by demonstrations and interactive lectures on horse care and horse knowledge.

For 'experienced' kids... Continuity of twice-daily lessons and more individual attention helps kids who have been in summer camps progress. Students polish their skills by learning more difficult movements under close eye of instructors.

For parents... We appreciate your concern for the safety of your kids. So we regularly test our school horses under saddle to ensure they're the right choice for their level of rider. Your child will ride a horse that is kind and very tolerant of the mistakes new riders make.

What Others Say

I started here with taking a summer camp when I was 9 and ended up really liking it. Took two years of lessons and showed in dozens of schooling shows. I loved the instructors and horses. Several years later, I now ride upper level dressage in national shows and am riding under an internationally known judge. I can't help but say CHC helped get me to where I am today. -- Former Student

My daughter calls Woodland her "happy place". The animals always look clean and healthy, surrounded by people who truly love, understand and appreciate them. Woodland offers so many exciting opportunities for all levels and ages that the only challenge is finding the time to participate in all the activities. My favorite part as a parent, though, is the supportive and caring staff: I have the peace of mind knowing that my child is always taken care of in the most warm and nurturing way.-- Masha L.
