Kippewa offers a true equestrian specialty program with all the fun and traditions of sleepaway camp. Our Equestrian Program provides the level of instruction found in specialized riding camps, within a traditional summer camp program. From our Introductory Program for girls new to riding, to our Core Riding Program with daily sessions 6 days a week to our Intensive Program, campers with a passion for riding will find an option that matches their level of interest. In addition, Camp Kippewa offers 40+ arts, sports and adventure activities that complement the riding program perfectly.

Our program provides the perfect opportunity to enjoy non-competitive, top-notch Huntseat Equitation riding instruction with an emphasis on safety, fun and skill development following the standards of the United States Equestrian Federation (USEF).

Our program welcomes first-time riders, beginners and advanced riders with individual attention tailored to your level. We teach in the Huntseat Equitation style of riding in our three rings. Girls start with equitation and, once mastered, explore other forms of English riding style such as dressage, jumpers and cross country.

All riders work with our highly qualified, dedicated instructors at their own pace in a fun and relaxed atmosphere. Instructors are trained with CHA (Certified Horsemanship Association) standards and consistently demonstrate their commitment to meeting the varied needs of each individual rider.
