Each day campers will participate in small group riding lessons with experienced equine instructors, interactive learning sessions, and various entertaining evening activties.
Campers will also have the chance to sign up for a special elective of their choice each afternoon.


Our Volunteers2021 EIHPC - 60

The Eastern Iowa Horse & Pony Camp also relies heavily on volunteers to keep the cost of camp low.  We suggest a parent or guardian of each camper take some time to help in areas such as: overnight chaperons, kitchen help, daily chaperons, etc. 

Our Mentors

Opportunities are also available for older and experienced youth to be mentors. Mentors provide assistance to our instructors during riding lessons to ensure campers are excelling and advancing their skills during the lessons. They also assist in the barns, E-cademy's, electives, snack bar, kitchen, and evening activities.
