About the Trip

Camp Sycamore Hills is home to more than forty horses of various breeds, sizes, and talents. This Destination is for girls who want to try a little bit of everything that horses have to offer, so jump in the saddle for little Western and English flare; then explore the art of vaulting as you learn techniques of gymnastics on horseback. Add mounted games, a trail ride, and jumping sessions to round out the perfect horse experience. In the barn, girls will have the chance to learn basic horse first aid, how to prepare a horse for a show, learn to communicate with the horse by exploring the language of horses, and more.

When not at the barn, girls will have the chance to try outdoor adventure programs such as zip lining, tree climbing, or high challenge as well as cool off in the pool. Girls will experience Music City culture with a trip to Nashville for sightseeing and a concert.
