Summer camps return in 2018! Dates to be announced soon!

Maplewood Summer Camps involve many fun activities in addition to plenty of riding time. From learning to groom and tack up their horses, our campers also enjoy learning about horse care, anatomy, equine behavior, tack, equipment and much more.

In addition, campers spend time on arts and crafts projects, swimming and other fun activities.

Lessons are split into groups, so there are opportunities for all levels of riders—from beginners to more advanced—to learn new skills and ride with campers of similar ability.

Camps run Monday-Friday from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. and the cost is $750. A non-refundable deposit of $250 must be received before space will be reserved. Please send a check to: Maplewood Inc., 425 W. Laramie Dr., Reno, NV 89521.
