Unicorn themed crafts & toys help serve as a medium to engage imaginative play, cooperation, and strengthen social skills in a playful environment. Riding & horse involvement will be limited at this camp keeping the focus on promoting a positive camp experience for the "first-time-camper".

Please note this camp includes 1 day with horse activities. As with all our camp services it will however include hay rides, free play, some farm chores, & crafts. This type of summer camp is best suited for the camper looking to socialize & get outside. 

Camp activities vary between groups and are subject to change at the program's discretion. Deposits are non-refundable. All camper guardians must sign their camper in/out each day. W.A reserves the right to dismiss camper's & their families for poor conduct during camp without obligation of refund. All activities will be outdoors and held under our covered riding space. In rain, we will limit our activities to crafts and "indoor" enrichment under the cover. Camps that coincide with severe weather will be communicated with upfront on how W.A plans to proceed. 

Frequently Asked Questions: Camp

Can my 8yo attend Unicorn Camp?

Absolutely! The age range is an average. We happily invite campers over age 5 to join us in a mini week of whimsy and play!

What's the difference between "summer" & "horsemanship" camps?

Summer camp is a mixture of activities that get campers outdoors and active! Horses act as an element, but not as a focus as we work with horses one day of the week in summer camp. 


Horsemanship camp focuses on the horses, training techniques, and equine related work that help campers learn what it takes to be a responsible horseman. This camp is offered exclusively to W.A lesson students only.

What's the camp agenda like?

9a Drop-off

10:30a A.M Snack

12p Lunch

1p Craft/Free-play

2p Pick-up


All camps are offered water-play, hay rides, and at least 1 day of relays & horse related activities. 


*optional change-of-clothes is welcomed. We encourage all campers to wear something they can get dirty in. 

Is there a wait-list I can join?

There has been in the past however this year(2022), we will not be referring to a "wait-list" in an effort to consolidate on the clerical end of things. Camp dates are released every January. Reminders and registration forms are emailed directly to those on the W.A mailing list along with the monthly newsletter in an effort to help parents and guardians get a jump on the summer madness.
