Overnight and Day Campers will together set out for daily adventures, enjoy exciting activities and explore this magical place called Pony Gang Farm.

Summer Camps encourages achievement and build the self-esteem, confidence and courage needed to become leaders. It also promotes healthy lifestyles, fitness and activity.
We aren't small........ We are personal!
We believe that we can better serve our campers by keeping our camp small and personal.
Our camp set is different than many of the mega camps. By only allowing a maximum of 16 Overnight campers and 5 Day Campers each camp week, we can have maximum impact on your child by giving them the individualized attention that they deserve. Also our Campers have more opportunities in learning everything that needs to be known about horses, their care and needs.
We will hand-picked our staff. We only hire Counselors with high ideals, strength of personality, and integrity of character. Our counselors soon become not only the campers mentor, but also their big sister and friend. Naturally, the counselors are able, by example and advice, to encourage self-assurance and help overcome possible weaknesses. Counselors live in the Campers area alongside the campers.
Our values and goals boil down to two things at Pony Gang Camp: fun and friendship. We firmly believe that given campers the chance to choose some of their daily activities fosters both of these by allowing campers to do what they love, with those who share their interests.
Campers interact, play, and learn with their peers of all ages. Every summer, our campers go home with warm, happy memories and friendships that will last a lifetime.
We have knowledgeable, skilled trainers to manage our stable and run our English and Western riding lessons.
Our Campers range from total beginners to intermediate equestrians, and ride every day. When they are not on horseback, campers learn how to take care of horses, including feeding and watering, brushing, tacking up, and basics of horse health.
We also over a great amount on other activities during camp weeks.
Camps always have a great benefit for children - Camp sets you up for success in life.
Camps are fun, and children make friends who one day may be roommates, or in their wedding... Children experience at Camp things they won't at home.
