Helpful Hints

  • Please pack using a large suitcase or trunk (no larger than 40Lx37Wx16H)
  • Each evening we have a themed night event and encourage your campers to dress up and get in "costume!" 
  • Don't buy a lot of new clothing - this is camp, and we will most likely get wet and dirty!
  • Use ziplock bags to waterproof items.
  • Don't send anything that you consider irreplaceable.
  • Clearly and boldly label all of your child's belongings.
  • Strapless clothing, mini-skirts, two-piece swimsuits or t-shirts with large cut outs are not allowed.
  • All shorts must be a modest length (fingertip length) and we have a NO ROLL rule. 

For Young Riders & Sky Fillies Rodeo Camps

  • Camper will need riding boots.
  • If your camper is bringing their own horse to camp, please remember to bring buckets, feed, supplements, and all tack required for your horse for the week. If using a Sky Ranch horse, all of the above will be provided.
  • A riding helmet is required. If you do not have a helmet, Sky Ranch will provide one.
