In order for us to operate a 24-hour-a-day camp for one week at such a low fee, our camp relies HEAVILY on volunteer help. We ask each camper have at least one parent or guardian volunteer at some point during the week. If you are unable to volunteer during the week, please take a turn either on Sunday night or Saturday morning for clean up. Please fill in the Volunteer Form and review our Volunteer Expectations. A schedule will be posted to the website and emailed out prior to the start of camp. We will try to fulfill all requests and obligations of each volunteer. Volunteers serve at the discretion of the EIHPC board.
All volunteers will have to complete a background check, liability release, and photo release authorization form. We ask that if you have an opportunity to observe your child in lessons, please feel free, but do not be disruptive. Any volunteer coaching from the side will be asked to leave the area immediately and will be prohibited from observing lessons for the rest of the week. Our instructors are there to teach the kids, not the parents.
Barn volunteers should not help their own child with any chores or tacking up their horse. There are other barn vounteers that will be able to assist the child with these tasks.
All volunteers are required to complete Hoof Beats, a volunteer training orientation provided by our camp that will take approximately 5-10 minutes, and become familiar with our volunteer expectations. The Volunteer Schedule will be emailed out to the volunteers and posted here approximately 30 days before the start of camp.
