Wilderness Horse Camp Descriptions
Located at the edge of the Eagle Cap Wilderness in eastern Oregon, Wilderness Horse Camp (WHC) is uniquely suited to expanding and solidifying western trail riding skills and back country knowledge. Offering residential camps for girls, and wilderness pack trips for boys, we strive to pass on our love and passion for the outdoors to future generations.

For boy’s ages 12-17, with or without their fathers, this camp is designed simply to help foster each boy’s interest in, and experience with, the back country. They will assist with all aspects of the trip including horse care, fire building, tent placement, meals, etc. Additionally, as the opportunity arises, they will receive instruction in flora and fauna identification, rudimentary survival skills, orienteering and other basic outdoor skills.
