How much riding experience do I need to be on a pack trip? At Willow Creek - no experience is needed but you will be expected to learn how to catch, brush and saddle their own horses and be comfortable riding for up to 1-2 hours. The day rides we do include going up and down steep terrain. At Coat Creek - some experience is needed and you need to be prepared to ride for up to 8 hours. Campers will need to be ready to live in the wilderness which includes going to the bathroom outside, helping with chores like harvesting firewood and setting up camp.
Do you provide subsidies and/or sponsorships for campers who can't afford to come? We do not want camp fees to keep someone from attending our camps. If you are in need of financial assistance to come to camp or send your child, please email us at
No. There is no internet access for campers at any of our locations.
We don't attend church; will we feel out of place? Will my child feel pressured to believe in your faith? Many of our campers do not attend church, a fact which we take into consideration when we plan our programs and camps. No camper will forced or coerced into making any decision at camp. We do our best to include each camper and strive for an inclusive, loving environment in which each person feels accepted and appreciated.
