George School Equestrian Camp

Spend your summer days riding on the beautiful 240-acre George School campus. Learn how to improve your riding and horsemanship skills. We have horses available for beginner to advanced levels.

Our camp includes flatwork, horsemanship, and jumping. Our certified instructors emphasize safety and riding enjoyment for campers ages eight to sixteen*!

*Families with campers under the age of eight who are interested in Equestrian Camp should contact Tiffany Taylor, Equestrian Center Director at 215.579.6710.

George School Equestrian Camp food is provided by CulinArt, the George School food service provider. Lunch options are fresh, healthy, and change daily. We are a nut-free camp and can accommodate other food allergies and dietary restrictions.
