Camp is open to all Burghley Members aged 10 and above at the time of Camp (12 years and over for Woodland Pytchley Members.) Parents should consider carefully if their child is mature enough to stay away all week, and if they are fully able to look after their pony themselves for the entire week. If necessary, younger member’s stable management and riding ability may be assessed to determine if they would benefit most from Residential or Daily Camp. All members must be paid up current members for the year 2019/20 before their application will be accepted. All members must have attended at least two Rallies or Training Sessions in 2019 before June 8th for their application to be accepted – otherwise the camp deposit will be refunded. However, if you attended Camp 2018 then attendance at only one Rally or Training Session will be required. This is a fully residential camp and Members going home for a night disrupts the smooth running of the week, therefore any member ‘going home for a night’ except for illness may be asked to leave Camp at the discretion of the organisers. The Woodland Pytchley may have differing criteria and applications for their members will receive notification from their branch.
We can only prepare and run Camp successfully with the help and support of parents. Please indicate on the Parental Volunteer form when you are available to help and complete this with your application form. A rota will be published nearer to Camp to confirm your day and time. As we need to be aware of who is present on the campsite at all times parents are **NOT** allowed to visit Camp except when on the rota to help or if contacted by a member of the Camp Team.
For Burghley members to qualify for Camp 2019, parents will be required to help at either the Spring Hunter Trial, Novice Show or One Day Event prior to camp.
Please note that help to set up equipment will again be needed during the week before Camp (likely Thursday evening) and help to set up the tented village will be required on the Saturday before Camp. On Friday August 2nd parents are welcome to watch their children ride during the morning ridden competition, and all parents should plan to arrive no later than 1pm to assist with clearing of stables, camping equipment, and other packing away as needed. Presentations will only take place once the site is cleared, and Camp is usually over by 4pm.
The cost of Camp for 2019 is £295 in total, with a deposit of £100 due by May 1st and the balance of £195 due by June 8th.
Camp’hoodies’ and/or gillets will be available to purchase before camp and an order form will be sent out after your application is received.
Places can only be confirmed upon receipt of a fully completed application form and deposit followed by balance. Deposits will only be refunded if notification of cancellation is received prior to the full balance becoming due on June 8th 2019.
Due to the recent outbreak of Equine Flu, passports will be fully inspected before your application is accepted.1. Whilst it is advisory to have a booster if your vaccination was more than six months ago we will allow those whose vaccination falls within the last year of the last day of Camp, August 2nd 2019.2.Those of you who are either starting from scratch or have restarted must have completed two injections, the first followed by the second 21 days later followed by 7 days to allow for immunisation.
Your application requires a scanned or photocopied copy of your horse/pony’s vaccination certificate unless their vaccination booster falls due between the time of application and Camp, in which case please advise the date the vaccination is due and forward a photocopy once it has been done (please write name of member and horse/pony on photocopy.) This needs to be either emailed or posted to:
