Western Riding: Learn how to groom and saddle, as well as ride and steer your horse all by yourself! Work toward fun activities like a trail ride and arena games.

Want to spend even more time with the fabulous horses at Camp Wildwood? Then join us for one of our specialty horseback riding camps that offer extensive experience with horses for riders of all levels. You’ll learn all about the work, dedication, and determination involved with horsemanship as you spend several hours a day at the barn saddling, riding, cleaning, and caring for the Wildwood horses. Themed sessions are offered each week and focus on different skills. When you’re not out riding, you will also enjoy traditional camp activities such as archery, swimming, and arts and crafts. End the week each Friday with a celebration at our special camp-wide Barn Bash!

Not a Girl Scout? Not a problem! The best part is that all girls entering grades K-12 can attend Girl Scout Camp. Non-Girl Scouts simply pay the $25 membership fee in addition to the camp fee to become a registered 2018-19 Girl Scout member. To learn more, contact and we’ll help get you registered for your summer camp experience.
