Located at Cornucopia, gateway to the Eagle Cap Wilderness, our Original Wilderness Horse Camp is the perfect camp for that horse-crazy teenage girl who has already mastered the basics of horse care and riding.  While at this 7-day overnight camp, you'll expand your knowledge by riding every day up mountain trails that will take you to spectacular views and allowing you to explore this historic mining area. 

The week starts out in our sturdy, rustic base camp above Pine Creek where you will get acquainted with your fellow campers. Our base camp has a hot water shower, canvas wall tents with wooden floors, and, as always, spectacular scenery!

A resident camp, each day the girls saddle up and head out into the mountains then return to base camp at night where they'll learn to prepare their meals using rustic cowgirl cooking skills. Taking overnight trips will depend on the skill and group size of each camp, nights will be spent gazing at the millions of stars filling the sky every night.

Your first day will be spent getting to know your fellow campers for the week then being paired up with a horse perfect for your skill level.  After everyone gets to know their new four-legged friends, we'll hit the trails for the first time.

Mornings are spent making hearty breakfasts and a sack lunch, saddling up and learning some things along the way, then exploring the beautiful sights of the Eagle Cap Wilderness area. We'll spend hours in the saddle riding through a variety of landscapes, from granite mountaintops to lush valley floors. We will even find some mountain meadows to canter in!

When we return from our ride we'll brush down our horses, feed them some hay, then spend the night eating dinner and playing games. Don't forget to bring your swimsuit so we can splash around in Pine Creek or take a dip in some high mountain lakes. Campers can also take afternoon hikes with our counselors, do arts and crafts, try their hand at archery, or maybe take a bareback ride.

Wilderness Horse Camp is still roughing it, but adding some comfort things like a hot shower! All in all, it adds up to an awesome experience. So join us for the summer adventure of a lifetime!
