School holiday camps & Farm Club

SCHOOL HOLIDAY PROGRAMMES & CAMPS

Every school holidays we run our school holiday programmes:

  • “Farm Club” for kids from 5-12 years old
  • Pony Camp for kids from 9 years and over

We also run a specialised vaulting camp during the summer holidays for both members and non-members. We create events for these on Facebook, so follow us to stay up to date.

FARM CLUB

This is definitely something different for kids to do in the school holidays; be active outdoors by the beautiful Waikanae river in Kapiti (or under our covered arena if it rains) and have fun with friends and horses. Kids can come for a day or for the week, whatever suits you!

At the Farm Club holiday programme kids will ride horses, try vaulting, learn circus skills on our aerial silks and hoops, do trampolining, learn about animal care, go on walks, do crafts, play games and have heaps of fun.

Weekdays 9am – 3pm (for girls and boys between the age of 7 – 12 years)$45.00 pp, per day

Tuesdays and Fridays 9am – 12pm (for 5 to 7 year olds)
$25.00  pp, per day

Bookings essential

Bring your own lunch, water bottle, change of clothes, and sturdy safe shoes to wear around horses.

VAULTING SUMMER CAMP (overnight camp)

Next Camp Dates will be posted in our Facebook Events

Vaulting camp is the highlight of the year for our vaulters! It is  a great opportunity to do more vaulting, work with overseas coaches, meet vaulters from other clubs, improve and develop skills and have fun. We can’t wait to see you!

SENIORS (10+ years old, overnight camping)

Besides vaulting, training, and horse care we will be going off the Kāpiti Equestrian property at times for training or team building, swimming at local pool or river, tramping, running at parks, beach and walkways. A variety of venues are planned depending on the number of campers.

All meals included (please let us know of any food allergies, since our meals usually contain gluten, dairy, eggs and meat)

Camping will be in tents on the property.

JUNIORS (6-10 years old, 9am-noon daily)

Juniors under 10 years can join the older vaulters’ camp during the day only, from 9am-12pm (sign-in required)

Outside these hours, Juniors must stay with parents/caregivers off club property (they can’t camp or stay on the club property since we don’t have enough facilities or caregivers, sorry).

Wet or dry – it’s still on: we have undercover facilities so whatever the weather we are all still safe to play.
