Fox Pointe Farm offers a range of camp opportunities for riders of all levels. We have overnight camps, which are exclusively for girls, and we also offer co-ed day camps. All of our camp experiences focus on hunt seat equitation for youth aged 7 through 16. Our approach emphasizes safety first, as well as close and personalized attention. Our riding lessons are organized in small ability-based groups of no more than 10 riders in each group. Riding instruction is supplemented with on-the-ground horsemanship and barn management training. Campers who attend our overnight camps also participate in group outings that can include fun at the beach, a local park, or other local attractions depending on the weather and time of year. Students receive quality instruction from trainer Colleen Seely who is active in the industry through coaching at AA and VHSA horse shows, as well as coaching a Zone 3 Interscholastic Equestrian Association teams. She is also an active USEF/USHJA/VHSA member and judges local VHSA horse shows. Colleen has 16 years of experience teaching and managing successful summer equestrian camp programs and has served as a mentor to her working students that help manage daily farm activity.

Fox Pointe Farm Riding Camp offers one, two, and three week-long sessions for girls ages 8 to 16 at our premier all-girls sleep away camp. Beginning to advanced riders receive quality instruction in hunt seat equitation. Riders of any level will improve their skills, strength, confidence, and riding foundation. Students receive close personal attention in a small group setting as each camp session is limited to ten participants and riding lessons are taught small ability-based groups. Students may bring their own horse or be assigned one of our farm-owned horses or ponies. Each rider will attend two riding lessons daily, as well as one session of on-the-ground horsemanship and barn management, for a total of four hours of horse riding and care instruction. The week will begin with an evaluation of the rider's knowledge and skills. Some riding sessions will involve other riding experiences, such as trail riding or bareback riding. Instruction takes place in one of our two spacious arenas. Beginner riders will focus on basic position, safety skills, and the fundamentals of hunt seat riding. More advanced riders will improve their equitation skills on the flat and over jumps. In addition, we will visit local horse shows or events, and enjoy some of the fun local activities such as going to a drive-in theater, hiking at York River State Park, and swimming at Jamestown Beach.
