Meadowlark Horse Camp is an educational camp for horse-crazy kids specifically designed to give them as much hands-on time with the horses as possible.

We offer camps for english riders of all levels, whether you're looking for a great place to send the kids for an introduction to horses or to spring-board your young equestrian's riding up to the next level. We also have a low student to teacher ratio, with only 6 campers per instructor for intermediate/advanced campers, and only 4-5 campers per instructor for beginners. We also have either a two-to-one or one-on-one camper to volunteer counselor-in-training ratio, depending on experience levels. This allows your camper to get the best experience out of their week spent with us. 

What makes Meadowlark unique? Our farm is known for its welcoming, friendly and drama-free community, and our camps are no exception! We boast some of the most hands-on horse time of any of the metro-detroit horse camps! In addition, our farm takes COVID-19 very seriously and is a mask-mandatory zone with regular sanitation of gates, equipment, and shared surfaces. 

Our 2021 camps are formatted similarly to our 2020 camps, running 9AM to NOON each day, in order to maintain the safest learning environment for our campers while COVID-19 continues to be a threat.

Camps are $300 a week, and run from 9AM-12PM, Monday through Friday.

Camps for Young Riders - Our young riders camps are a great hands-on experience where your child can spend quality time learning to horseback ride and handle horses, creating awesome crafts, building leadership skills and making great new friends! Young Rider camps are $300 for the week, and include at least an hour of time in the saddle each day, as well as time working with the horses on the ground. We aim to have one group of beginners and one group of riders with experienced each week of camp. Our campers get the best hands-on experience, hands down!
