2018 Camp Sessions


UPDATE December 11th, 2018: We are so excited to announce our Summer 2018 camp sessions and dates! Registration is not *quite* open yet, but please check back in early January and there will be a link to our registration site. 


Tuition *change* for 2018:
 Because of the ever-growing popularity of credit cards we have decided to include a processing fee in our camp tuition. However, there is still a discount if you pay by check! Please see our Financial Policies link below for more information. 

Note that we have a limited number of spaces in horse camp sessions for very-beginner riders (those with less than 2 previous Ekone horse camp sessions or 10 hours of independent riding experience).  Please consider doing some riding lessons to prepare for camp.  We’re happy to provide referrals to instructors near you.  Riding lessons will enrich the camp experience of riders at ANY level, as well.  

Each camp session begins at 3pm on Sunday afternoon.  Parents are asked to help their campers get settled and depart (or participate in our guided parent hike!) by 4:00 so we can get our week together started.  But plan to spend more time at the ranch at pick-up on Saturday; join us at noon for a delicious lunch at the Yummy Tummy Cafe, a slide show of the week’s activities, and, for horse camp sessions, a riding demonstration. 
 
For more details about each session, click the session title, and please read our Financial Policies 2018  for information about available discounts and refunds for cancellation. 
 
All camps are co-ed except Passage for Girls and all-girls horse camp Sessions 7 and 8. Note that sessions marked “A” and “B” run concurrently.

**A note about multiple sessions: we always encourage campers to stay for more than one week!  It takes everyone a few days to settle into the rhythm of ranch life, and by that time, a one-week session is half over and we only get a couple of days of being fully present and together.  The two-week session is a great option, and many campers combine multiple one-week sessions.  Campers are welcome to stay over for the Saturday night between sessions, and it’s often a very special small-group time.  However, if we have only ONE camper staying between sessions, we will ask you to pick them up and return at 3pm on Sunday. 
 

In case the camp you want is FULL:

  • We reserve spaces in each session for scholarship applicants pending awards made in April, and Counselor-In-Training applicants. 
  • If you are a scholarship or CIT applicant, please contact summercamp@ekone.org for instructions. 
  • If you are neither, please join the waitlist through the registration link below.  Sometimes things shift around in April!  And even a long waitlist doesn’t necessarily mean it’s impossible to get in to a session–by the time a space opens up many waitlist campers may have made other plans. 
  • When you join a waitlist, please also send a brief email to summercamp@ekone.org describing your camper and any dietary restrictions, medications or other special needs. 
  • If you would like to be added to Ekone’s mailing list to receive invitations to other events at the ranch, as well as the early-registration notice for next season, please email summercamp@ekone.org.
