Youth will spend a week learning how to care for and ride a horse. They will see how God reveals Himself through nature, animals & people while gaining confidence as they acquire new skills and realize they are loved and made special by God. Each day includes morning devotions, hot chocolate, a hearty breakfast, van ride to the Yost ranch, grooming, saddling, learning about horses, a big sack lunch, lots of riding time, then back to camp for showers, a yummy dinner, active outdoor games,  campfire, Bible time and bedtime.  The small size of the group (max. 12) is perfect for kids to make new friends and spend quality time with each other and their horse.

The first days will be spent learning basic horsemanship and horse safety in the Yost Family Arena.  On Wednesday, the campers and staff will leave for a 3 day 2 night campout with their horses at an old ranch in Wallowa County.  The camp will provide transportation to all offsite activities.

Check-in for Trail Riders Horse Camp at Wallowa Lake Camp will be from 3pm – 4pm on Sunday
Pick-up is at Wallowa Lake Camp at 9:30am Saturday.   There will be a short closing time before families leave.
