March Break Camp is a DOGSLEDDING & HORSEBACK RIDING camp. A one of a kind! The girls do a morning dogsled run, have their lunch and a quick break, then head to the barn for an afternoon riding lesson. In between there's winter fun and games, and of course, the girls get to camp out in our winter cabin, and enjoy roaring fires and marshmallows. All the fun, none of the frigid! Our meals are home cooked, our staff are fun and friendly, and everyone loves A WINTER holiday!
