Equine Sciences Youth Summer Camp at Colorado State University

horsemanship camp 2020

In order to register for this summer (2021), please go to our main website:


Offered annually, the Youth Summer Horsemanship Camps are geared towards equine enthusiasts who are 10-15 years of age. Campers have the option to stay overnight in residence halls located on CSU's main campus, eat in residential dining halls, and receive classroom and riding instruction from equine faculty and current students.

Campers may bring their own horse or lease a horse, ride english, western, or both, and spend the duration of camp as an overnight  or day camper. When you register your child, please be sure to register as a day camper or overnight camper and add a lease horse if needed. Lease horses are limited and are first come, first serve.
