Volunteer at Camp

The Riding School is looking for volunteers (ages 11 and up) to help with our Summer Camp programs, starting Monday, June 3rd and ending Tuesday, August 13th. We will need volunteers for each session who know how to tack up and lead horses on their own. Volunteers will need to be available Monday – Thursday from 10:30am – 12:00pm for Summer Camp and/or 12:30pm – 2pm for Picnic with the Ponies.

Volunteers are welcome to help with both camps if they wish.  Feel free to bring a lunch and hang out with the other volunteers and instructors during breaks.  At the end of the summer, there will be a volunteer appreciation day with the opportunity to ride, bathe, and enjoy a fun lunch.  Volunteers must have volunteered consistently throughout the summer.

Please contact the riding school at eqschool@kcranch.org or 303-972-8456.
