Meet the staff!

Hi everyone! My name is Kennedy and this will be my third summer working at the day camp. Some of my favorite camp activities are arts and crafts and water games when it’s warm enough. My favorite day camp horse is Diego because he’s small but sassy! I’m currently a senior at UW-Madison and will be starting a PhD program at UNC-Chapel Hill in the fall. In my free time I like to dance, go to the gym, and cook random things I find on Pinterest. I’m looking forward to meeting everyone and having a great summer!

Spring is Here!

Hello from Hoofbeat!

The snow has finally melted and we can see the barn from the lower part of camp (before the view was blocked with mountains of snow......and we do mean mountains!!!). The sun has been warm and the horses seem to be enjoying it more each day. They are really starting to shed now! That must mean spring is here. Yay!
Camp is filling up quickly. Resident camp doesn't have much space left in the June sessions at this point. Day camp has about 20 spots left in most sessions. Sign up soon to get your first choice of dates!
We have added two Mother/Daughter Weekends to our fall calendar. The dates are September 27-29th and October 4-6th. We just opened registration yesterday, but there were lots of sign ups. We expect both weekends to fill quickly.
Our annual Open House will be held Sunday, June 9th this year. It will be from 2-5 pm and everyone is welcome!
We've been posting staff bios so that everyone can get to know our summer staff. So, without further ado, say hi to Elinore!

Hello! My name is Elinore and this is my first summer as a staff member but my third summer at Hoofbeat. I am extremely excited to come back to camp! I am from Glenview, IL and am excited to graduate in the spring and study computer science next fall. Outside of school I love to help my school build sets for shows, trying to bake (emphasis on trying), and goofing around with my horse Barnabee. I can't wait to sing camp songs, play group games, and meet all the new campers! My favorite Hoofbeat horses are Raspberry and Indy. I cannot wait to see everyone this summer!
