Campers are expected to arrive at camp in long pants (jeans, leggings or riding pants) and smooth sole boots with heels (suitable for riding). Campers should expect to get dirty – so they will need to bring a change of clothes, shorts and tennis shoes. Please also bring bug spray and sunscreen as needed.
The cost of camp includes a $50 non-refundable registration fee. The $50 registration fee is due within one week of your reservation due to the high demand for our camps – your spot will not be secure until your deposit is received. The balance will be due 30 days before the start of the first day of your selected camp week. Parents of campers must complete and return all forms prior to the camper’s first day. Camper numbers will be limited – campers will be accepted on a first come first serve basis – registration and forms can be mailed to 3213 Banks Rd, Raleigh, NC 27603 or you can drop it by the barn in the evenings when a Horses for Hope representative is present. If you should have to cancel your camp week we will refund all but the registration fee up to four weeks before the beginning of the selected camp week.
