Summer Camps 2024

The annual summer camp is a long standing tradition of the Pony Club.  Camp for many members is the highlight of the PC calendar.  We are very fortunate to have the use of the facilities at Stowell Park, near Northleach to run three summer camps with fabulous countryside all around.  All three camps have lots of room to practice flatwork as well as various show jumping courses and cross country jumps to hone the members’ skills.

2024 Camp dates:

Senior Camp at Stowell Park – Sunday 21st to Friday 26th July
Junior Camp at  Oxpens, Stowell – Monday 22nd to Friday 26th July
Mini Camp at Oxpens, Stowell – Tuesday 23rd to Thursday 25th July

MINI CAMP (6 years and under)

Mini camp is for members 6 years and under and runs for 3 days with a slightly shorter day. Many of these members are on the leading rein.  They have a mix of instruction, games and more games and a picnic ride down to the river (for a very competitive boat race after the picnic).

JUNIOR CAMP (11 years and under)

Junior Camp runs for 5 days and children arrive at Oxpens each day for lots of instruction and fun.  Children’s abilities range from the complete novice to the accomplished and the emphasis is on fun and learning how to enjoy your pony and how to look after him well.   Each day there are various unmounted activities that members join in with in order that the ponies get a rest.

SENIOR CAMP (11 years & over)

We are delighted to be able to run Senior Camp at Stowell park again this year. There will be 3 options to choose from:
OPTION 1 – Riding Only
OPTION 2 – Residential without pony/horse
OPTION 3 – Residential with pony/horse
