Girls Ages 7 - 16 years
Imagine going to the pasture to bring in your horse, grooming and saddling him, riding him in a sunlit arena or through wooded trails.
Then spending your afternoon jumping on the trampoline and having a picnic at the pond. You can try your hands at camp crafts, the basics of vaulting, feeding our ducks, chicken, miniature pigs or goats. Also, swimming in the beautiful pool, campfires, girl talk in the bunk room after lights out and hikes along the wooded banks of our ponds.
The Summer Camp program focuses on all things related to horses incl. English, Hunter/Jumper and Western riding lessons. We also offer our Overnight campers Beginner Vaulting and some basics of Trick Riding lesson.
All levels of riders are welcome. Instructions are tailored to the skill level and specific needs of each camper from beginner (balance, steering, rising trot, basic pole-work, etc.) to more advanced (seat and position in canter, jumping, etc.).
Camp Pony Gang Equestrian Services in Camden strongly believes that when developing the equestrian of tomorrow, safe horsemanship and care of animals are just as important to teach as mounted skills.
We pride ourselves in providing a fun, safe and well-rounded Sleepaway horse camp experience where girls can immerse themselves in the moment and enjoy themselves in a non-competitive environment.
The longer Campers stay here with us at the Pony Gang Summer Camp the more they learn, and the more time they have to establish friendships and connections that continue as lifelong sources of strength.

Pony Gang Equestrian Center is a family-oriented Facility. The camp keeps a limited enrollment as, statistically, it has been shown that campers receive a more wholesome experience without the intimidation of a large, full of hustle and bustle camp. Kids at our camp receive more attention and are not lost in the shadows of more competitive campers.
Campers are matched with a horse or pony for their entire session allowing them to connect and progress together. Our Farm is the year around home to 34 wonderful, furry friends of many sizes, breeds and colors. They are all specifically trained here at the Farm for our lessons and camp programs and maintained under our watchful eyes.
