Somerford Camp -Sunday 15th to Wednesday 18 th August 2021
Booking for Camp 2021 now being taken. See information below.
Camp will remain Adult members only. Over 16yrs will be allowed with a supervising adult. Places will be allocated on a first come first served basis to active members who have undertaken their duty days and non-members after this if available.
Come and join us for the fourth High Peak Riding Club Camp. This
was highly successful last year so places will go fast.
This is an amazing opportunity for our members (and non-members) to have a fun filled, horsey few days at Somerford Park Farm in Cheshire. https://www.somerfordpark.co.uk/camps/
This is aimed at anyone over 16 years who is keen to have the opportunity to spend the whole weekend having fun, learning new riding skills and of course the benefit of adult company who also just want to talk about horses!
PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING INFORMATION FULLY
Dates for next years camp are Aug 15th-18th. We will be in Block C again and we can accommodate 31 campers.
Camp cost is £330. Please note your deposit is NON-REFUNDABLE UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES, even if you pull out of camp and your place is filled.
Camp includes everything apart from alcohol and your horse feed. Camp includes 4 lessons but next year we will be capping lessons with Matt Burnett to 2 lessons max per person. Lessons with Katie will no doubt be in high demand again so please do not expect all your lesson with one instructor. You may need to be flexible on discipline. Camp will also include unlimited use of the farm ride.
Places at camp will be first offered to members with high volunteer / attendance points. Current members who have joined more recently and not had the chance to help out due to covid will be offered a place. If you would like to attend camp but are not yet a member please message and places will then be allocated on a first come first served basis. All members old and new are expected to help out at events throughout this year and next. Priority will be given to those members who have helped and supported the club in previous years.
Please direct message Lizzie Windsor with your camp place request and include your email. She will reply to everyone who messages to confirm if you have a place or not and a waiting list will be created.
Please DO NOT SEND CAMP PAYMENTS NOW. She will contact you for payment when you have been offered a place. We will be offering the camp payment plan again so the cost of camp can be spread across the year. We recommend £30 per month but £20 will be accepted with the balance then due at the end of July. Failure to pay each month will put your camp place at risk. You can of course pay larger amounts throughout the year. Lizzie will send further info on payments and terms and conditions once she receives your message.
Membership 2021 must be paid for in January 2021 if you book a camp place now. If membership is not received then your place will be offered to someone else and no refund given. We hope by allowing membership to be paid in January when due this will help spread the cost.
Minimum camp age is 16 and under 18s must be accompanied by an adult. Vaccines must be in line with Somerford guidelines at the time of camp. At present this is 12 months but could change back to 6 months.
Please note we will no longer be accepting cash or cheques. All payments will need to be sent via Paypal (FRIENDS AND FAMILY ONLY) or BACS.
