HAMPTON, Va. (June 13, 2019) –Hampton University is hosting an Equestrian Summer Camp starting on June 17 for kids aged 7-17 who are interested in gaining knowledge of all types of horses, riding equipment and terminology. This day camp uses friendly, trained horses to make reading fun and enjoyable. Registration is available now online.

The Reading Interest Development & Enhancing Riding Skills (RIDERS) summer day camp program held at Hampton University’s newly renovated 1360 N. Mallory Street stables begins on June 17 and ends on July 19, 2019. The cost ranges from $175 per rider and there are regular and advanced sessions available.

“We are anticipating another great summer RIDERS program. We are adding an extra week, which will give parents, faculty, staff, and/or alumni an opportunity to participate in this program. We have great instructors for both the riding and reading sections of the program, and are excited about the summer of 2019,” said Dr. Rodney Gaines, Camp Director and Assistant Professor in the Hampton University’s Department of Health, Physical Education, and Recreation.

Each day, campers will not only participate in RIDERS, but also other traditional camp activities, such as arts & crafts and games. At the end of the camp session, participants will have a new understanding of horses while getting the chance to meet and make friends with the same interests.
