Glen Grove Equestrian Center's summer riding camp is held in weekly sessions from June 13 through August 12 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 8 riders. The tuition is $600 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 continue to change, including but not limited to masking, vaccinations, and testing procedures.

Cancellations due to illness and/or exposure to COVID-19 will be handled on a case-by-case basis.
Beginning two weeks prior to start date of your registered camp session,
if you become aware of any potential exposure to COVID-19 or positive test of rider or a close contact of rider, you are required to notify us promptly.
Having only 8 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. 
Campers are not required to wear masks during riding; they may be worn in the barn.
Hand washing with soap and water is always available, or hand sanitizer.
