Kids School Holiday Camps

We are open every day of the October school holidays and our popular kids school holiday camps are back once again with places filling quickly. Our camps are a great way to keep the kids entertained, learning new skills and making friends under the supervision of our experienced instructors.


Horse Riding Camps (ages 5-17 years)


Our Horse Riding Camps offer children aged 5-17 years the opportunity to see what it is like to own their own horse and learn essential horse riding skills.


For those with limited riding experience, our Junior Beginner horse riding camp is specifically for children aged 5-7 years. This camp is run over a morning or afternoon and is a great introduction to horse riding under the full supervision of our qualified and friendly instructors. Our Junior Beginner students will learn the basics of how to lead, brush, mount, walk and trot.


There are also a variety of horse riding camps suitable for more experienced riders available, including our new 3 day overnight horse riding camp.


Adventure Max Camp (ages 7-17 years)


The Adventure Max Camp is an action packed full day camp for children aged 7-17 years including a horse ride (or quad bike ride for over 12 years of age), kayaking and laser skirmish. The Adventure Max Camp is great value at just $140pp (a massive saving of $205 off the usual price if activities booked separately).
