    Many of these camps are overnight camps, of course, giving girls and boys the essential summer camp experience. This includes overnight bunking, s’mores by the campfire and late- night conversations that give kids memories that will last forever. For young women, this experience builds leadership, self-confidence and independence. You’ll also meet other kids from throughout the province, and from other parts of Canada and the United States.

    The best thing about Alberta horseback riding camps is the daily adventures, the trail riding and the one-to-one interactions you will have with your horse. Camps often pair kids with one horse for the duration of the session. If you are like other kids, you’ll build a rapport with your horse that you will remember for the rest of your life.

    Finding the ideal Alberta horse camp:

    Between and there is a wealth of advice for parents. For example, on you can read reviews of Alberta horse camps, offering you our take on your options. Here are some other tips: 

    Understand your child. Your child’s enjoyment of camp can also vary quite heavily, so it’s important to choose sessions that are right for their age or stage of development. Horse camps are ideal for girls in middle childhood and up.

    Financial aid and other funding options are available. We offer advice in our look at paying for camp.

    Be careful what you judge the camp on. When you look at camp options, focus on what the camp says about safety, about how they handle the horses. Don’t focus on superficial aspects.

    Look province-wide. Some of the best horse camps are found in the foothills, far away from the major cities of Calgary and Edmonton. If you are searching from outside the province, keep this in mind.

    Understand ACA accreditation. The Alberta Camping Association (ACA) has a Standards and Accreditation program, the core of which is formal accreditation, requiring an inspection once every three years covering all aspects of camp operations. If the camp is ACA approved, this is certainly a seal of approval, important validation for parents. That said, there are camps that offer well-run programs that meet or exceed the standards of the ACA but which have not yet been accredited.
