Horses, Horses, Horses

This is the first step in the Stevens Ranch CHA (Certified Horsemanship Association) based series of sessions. Visit the barn daily (weather permitting) and learn to groom a horse, basic horse care, tack basics and basic riding skills.

Completion of Horses, Horses, Horses is a pre-requisite for Horse Fan.

Wrangler Aide

Wrangler Aide is an opportunity for experienced horsewomen to help with and learn our riding program. You will provide leadership to riding groups as you help them groom, saddle, and do daily barn chores. You will also assist the barn staff with ground and mounted riding lessons. You will have a busy schedule but will also have riding lessons to improve your own horsewomanship skills. 

Camp Aides

Come to Stevens Ranch this summer and have fun while flexing your leadership muscles! Camp Aides will bunk together while working with a unit of younger girls and assist with crafts, daily activities and kapers. All work and no play makes for a very dull Camp Aide, so we have lots of fun stuff just for you! Pre-requisites: Girls must have completed Program Aide Training, and camped for one six-day session of resident camp.

Camp Aide

Have you done it all and are ready to share with others while working on your leadership skills?  This is a fun way to help younger campers adapt to camp life.  Occasionally, you will get to cabin with the younger campers.  We will save time for some of the fun stuff just for you!  Helping with the horses may be assigned on a rotating basis.

PRE-REQUISITE:  Program Aide Training or camped at least two - six day sessions of resident camp.

Saddle Up II

Step beyond the level of Saddle Up I and learn additional riding techniques from CHA (Certified Horsemanship Association).  You will be responsible for your own mount, as well as corral management.  Each day begins at the crack of dawn and ends with riding into the sunset.  This group will ride out/camp out for one night on the primitive part of camp. Occasionally weather interferes with being able to ride daily.  Boots or shoes with a 1/2 inch heel are required.  Dips in the pool and hot showers are a must.

Geology Rocks

Are you curious about the structure of the planet Earth?  Do you know what a conglomerate is?   Then come to camp.  There's lots to explore in the Texas Panhandle and you can start at Camp Kiwanis.  We'll find lots of rocks, grow crystals, study the soil formations and include a field trip (weather permitting) to Palo Duro Canyon to see the Spanish Skits and more.

Survivor

Come be a part of a team and challenge each other to greater heights of skills for surviving in the wilderness.  Girls will improve their basic camping skills, learn new ones and be able to depend on themselves in an emergency.  A trip to the primitive area of camp will put those skills into action.  Enjoy hiking, riding horses, swimming and experiencing the challenge course.

Saddle Up I

Are you crazy about horses and gotta ride every day?  This session is for you!  This group will follow the Certified Horsemanship Association (CHA) program as they learn to groom, saddle, feed, and assist with corral management.  Saddle Up girls will start at the crack of dawn for their first ride of the day and in the evenings will ride off into the sunset.  Occasionally weather interferes with daily rides.  Boots with a 1/2 inch heel are required.  Cool dips in the pool are a must and other activities are included.
