ABOUT THE PROGRAM
The Ontario Harness Racing Youth Camp is an interactive day camp for kids, ages 10-13, designed to get kids up-close and personal with a horse.
On the final day of camp, all eight children compete in an exhibition race, during the regular race card at the track!
The Youth Camp offers both hands-on and classroom curriculum which includes:
• Safety around horses
• Grooming skills
• How to properly clean a stall
• Horse anatomy
• Feeding and nutrition
• History of the horse
• How to harness, jog and race a Standardbred!
How the Camps Work:
Participation is limited to eight children for each camp.
Campers are put into teams of two and each team is given a horse to work with. Snacks are provided daily. Lunches are not provided and parents must send lunches with their children. Fridge space, microwave access, etc. is available.
