We teach with Certified Horsemanship Association (CHA) guidelines for all skill levels. Rotate between classes in the morning, then enjoy all the other camp activities in the afternoon. Besides activities with the Youngteen campers, we will create horse-themed keepsakes and prepare for their drill team event.
There are interactive chapel sessions and cabin group discussions based on a teaching theme from the Bible. All teaching is designed to be applicable for Triple W campers from all walks of life and set them up for success.
If you can't decide between Youngteen and Triple W, this is the week for you. This week of Triple W Horsemanship joins our Youngteen chapel sessions and evening activities.
All Phantom Ranch staff are screened then trained in our child protection policies as well as helping campers conquer homesickness.
