Thank you for considering Stevens Creek Summer Camp!
2021 Summer Camp Information - Subject to Covid19 Limitations
Summer of Covid 2021 -
We plan to run two weeks of summer camp in July and one in August, 2021. We appreciate the importance for children to have a variety of sporting and cultural experiences and we are sensitive to the needs of the working parent.
Email us to register or to express interest in an August camp please.
We will reduce our numbers due to Covid. We encourage kids to attend with a social bubble friend or two if possible.
We want all our children to have a fun week and get lots of exercise. Children will be outside or in the open air stable all day. By the end of the week they will learn to ride and care for their horse, experience farm life and become familiar with horses and other farm animals including, cats, dogs, chickens, ducks, cows and horses.
