ABOUT GLEN GROVE SUMMER CAMP:
Glen Grove Equestrian Center's summer riding camp is held in weekly sessions from June 17 through August 16 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 camps.
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.
ONE-WEEK RIDING CAMP: $750
We will be offering six week-long sessions, three hours each day.
Campers will ride for one hour as well as learn about horsemanship, grooming, tacking and safety around horses.
Each session is limited to 12 riders in the morning and 12 in the afternoon.
TWO-WEEK HORSE SHOW CAMP: $3500
This year, we are offering a new and exclusive two week session for our riders who are ready to take the next step and travel to a horse show.
Students must be eligible for this camp, which requires being a current riding student of Glen Grove or consistent training in another program. A trial lesson may be required.
Attendance at a weekend horse show is part of the camp. A parent must attend the Saturday practice and Sunday competition in Gurnee.
The all-inclusive tuition for this program covers every fee associated with attending the horse show, such as two weeks of preparation (similar hours to four regular camp sessions), show lease fee for the horse and equipment, training at the show, transportation for the horse to and from the showgrounds, entry fees for six classes, horse show office and stall fees, shavings and feed and more.
