Glen Grove Equestrian Center's summer riding camp is held in weekly sessions from June 12 through August 11 at our facility located at 1181 Riverwoods Road in Lake Forest, Illinois.

Riders of any experience level, ages 7 - 13, are invited to join our summer riding camp.
Camp includes an hour of riding each day and general horsemanship lessons to learn how to care for the horses, groom, and tack.
Each morning and afternoon session will be limited to 12 riders. The tuition is $625 per weekly session and riders must supply their own riding attire.

You can find all clothing or safety gear that you'll need at our on-site store, Short Stirrups. Campers should have their own helmet. Helmets and riding boots purchased at our on-site store will be available at a special summer camp discount. We also carry equestrian clothing such as breeches, riding shirts, socks, gloves, and more. Additionally, campers should bring a water bottle every day.

We will follow CDC, state, and county guidelines for COVID-19.

Updated health and safety policies will be provided as protocols change, including but not limited to masking, vaccinations, and testing procedures.

Cancellations due to any illness, including COVID-19, will be handled on a case-by-case basis.
If a rider tests positive for COVID-19, you are required to notify us promptly.
Masking is optional unless necessitated by a positive test or updated government guidelines.
Hand sanitizer and hand washing with soap and water are always available.
Having only 12 campers each session gives us the ability to split larger groups and spread out campers to be socially distant. Fortunately, at this time of year the large barn doors are open which allows significant air flow.
