For Parents

In order for us to operate a 24-hoEIHPC 2021 - 46ur-a-day camp for one week at such a low fee, our camp relies HEAVILY on volunteer help.  If you have some time during the week and would like to volunteer at camp, please submit a Volunteer Form and review our Volunteer Expectations. If you are volunteering at camp during the week and have the opportunity to observe your child in lessons, please do not be disruptive. Volunteers serve at the discretion of the EIHPC board.

Camp check in BEGINS at 2:00 pm on the Sunday of Fathers’ Day. Parents will be asked to leave the grounds at 5 pm when camper activities begin. If a camper cannot make it during the normal check in hours, please notify EIHPC staff or team@eihpc.com to make other arrangements as soon as possible. Parking will be available, if you would like to park your horse trailer at camp for the week.

EIHPC 2021 - 15There will be an optional meet and greet for parents held on Friday afternoon. Parents are invited after 1pm on Friday to observe their child in lessons and speak with their instructor about their progress. Parents and siblings can purchase meal tickets and join their camper for supper that evening. 

We ask that for all of our campers' safety, that you refrain from visiting outside of the scheduled visiting hours. In our experience, this also aids campers in becoming more independent and responsible riders.

Awards and Dance are held on Friday evening. Parents are invited to the awards ceremony at 7 pm, but will be asked to leave prior to the dance starting. This year’s dance theme is "Christmas in June". Campers can bring appropriate costumes to camp if they wish.

Camp check out is from 8-10:30 am on Saturday. Before they are given their check out paperwork to leave the grounds, campers will have to clean their dorm area and strip their entire horse stall. 

Horse Health Papers: No horse will be admitted on the grounds without a health certificate by a licensed veterinarian with proof of vaccination dated within 30 days of camp. Coggins test is required for out of state horses. Vaccinations required for camp are 5 way, West Nile, and Rabies.2021 EIHPC - 34

Medallion Paddles: If your child attended EIHPC camp last year, please have them bring their camp paddle back to camp this year. First time campers will receive their camp paddles at the awards ceremony on Friday night. Return campers will receive their new camp brand Friday night also. See the Brand Meanings

Campers are not allowed to leave camp for any reason except medical or family emergencies. If there is a special circumstance, parents need to clear this with Matt, Katie, or Shawn prior to the start of camp.
