MORNING RIDE TIME:
On Mondays, we start at the Beginner Tracks at the Barn, where all Campers go through drills before being able to move on to the next level.
The rest of the week, Campers experience the full glory of our 100 acres of tracks & trails, as they progress in their skill level. Riding is done 20 minutes on and off the bike, for hydration, rest and recovery periods.
11:30 – 12:30 pm
We eat in our pleasant “Café”, where campers & staff bring sack lunches or eat the meals cooked fresh daily by Mrs. Turner for those who purchased the Lunch Meal Plan.
Lunchtime is also a time to relax, talk about the morning’s ride, eat as much as you want, lounge in hammocks, play air hockey, or for the last 20-30 minutes have the option of going into the Rec. Ctr. with staff and watch part of a movie throughout the week.
