Emails, Mail and telephone calls…
Overnight campers love mail! To ensure delivery, use priority post. Or send email in care of Rosebudstables@gmail.com. Telephone calls to overnight campers are discouraged. They tend to cause homesickness…a contagious condition! Don’t stress that your child can be "rescued" as this prevents the child from dealing with his or her feelings. Suggest that your child talk to a counselor instead. You can feel free to contact me at any time to see how your child is coping. We can return messages during the evening. We will post Pictures and status updates on Rosebud Stables Facebook Fan Page.

Health and medical

Please discuss your child’s special medical needs with the camp nurse upon arrival or send a written note. When it is necessary to send medication, clearly label the container with the child’s name and medication instructions and provide it to the camp nurse for storage. DO NOT send medication with your child to be self-administered.

Camp Fees

Please remember that the full payment of your child’s camp fees must be received prior to the start of his or her camp session. Payments made less than two weeks prior to the session must be by cash or credit cards through PayPal.

A Reading List for Horse-Crazy Kids

If you have (or are) a horse-crazy kid that wants to get a head start on camp this year, this is a list of recommended reading:
-Young Rider Magazine
-The Pony Club Manual of Horsemanship

** Please note** By law and for their own safety, children not wearing proper headgear will not be allowed to ride!

If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to call me at any time. See you at camp!
