Winter Break Camp



Camp Activities

Here at Camp Switch Willo, we strive to instill an appreciation for horses and the sport of riding in each child. We educate riders in a relaxed, supportive learning environment emphasizing safety with first class training professionals in a tree shaded ring. Integral parts of the process are the grooming, tacking up, and bathing of the horse or pony selected for your child. The tack-up area is shaded. The camp house is air conditioned.

At all times your child is under the supervision of First Aid and CPR certified adults.

Each week of camp ends with a special horse show for the parents and awards for the campers. Every child receives a ribbon for their hard work during the week. Parents are given advance notice of when their child will be showing so as not to miss this important event.

Activities include:

• Daily riding instruction on well trained, safe horses and ponies
• Proper safety and barn etiquette
• Additional barn lessons about horses and their care, veterinary care, dentistry, and horse show preparation
• Visits with our farrier
• Arts & crafts
• Outdoor activities and games
• Circle time reading for our youngest campers
• Trips to our onsite tack shop on Thursday mornings (during Spring & Summer break camps)
• Scavenger hunts
• Swimming pool staffed by a certified lifeguard (During the summer months)

What Campers Wear and Bring:

• Long pants or jeans
• Boots with low heels (see note below). Cowboy/cowgirl boots are acceptable
• ASTM/SEI approved equestrian helmet: no bicycle, skateboarding, or snowboarding helmets. (Due to health/safety regulations, we are unable to lend or sell used helmets.) (See note below)
• Sack lunch along with several light snacks
• Labeled water jug or water bottle
• Carrots for horses
• Swimsuit, towel, and sunscreen (During the summer months)
• Change of clothing for after riding, if desired

NOTE: All items needed may be purchased at Switch Willo Stables. Save yourself time, money and convenience by picking everything up you need right here at our Camp!

Come see what Austin families have been talking about for over 50 years. Campers form a true bond with the horses and make new friends in both the two-legged and four-legged variety.
