YMCA Camp Timbers

Horse Specialty Camp

Spend two hours each day focused on basic horse care and knowledge, riding instruction, and horseback rides along the trails surrounding camp. From helping feed in the mornings to grooming their horse before and after rides, campers spend the week building a relationship with their horse.

  • As an additional option you might consider adding up to 1 individual horse rides
  • Ages 9-14
  • Must be comfortable riding and working around horses.

What is Specialty Time?

Specialty time offers campers the opportunity to pursue a passion or explore an emerging interest for 2 hours daily. Campers choose a specialty option for the week and experience a progressive set of activities each day. Our Partner Specialty Camps create a “best of both worlds” experience for campers – they receive a high-quality, focused experience led by experienced instructors… and they also enjoy all of the outdoor experiences, connections, and growth that an overnight summer camp offers!


See and experience YMCA Camp Timbers for yourself! You can learn a lot about camp by digging deeper into our website, but it isn’t quite the same as meeting a member of our staff face-to-face and enjoying a walk through the property. Let us show you why we love Camp Timbers and answer all of your questions.
