Day Camp is open to all members who are either not old enough or do not want to go to Resi Camp.
Camp will run from Monday 5th August to Thursday 8th August inclusive in Burghley Park.
We will endeavour to get everyone in who wants to come however places are allocated on a first come first served basis, and acceptance of an application is also subject to a representative of each child providing a days help at either the Spring Hunter Trial or the July Area Eventing.
Camp set up will be on Sunday 4th August 2.00pm until finish, a representative for each member attending camp must be present at camp set up. A detailed list of jobs will be allocated but include things like, strimming, putting up tents, course building, arena setting etc - the fields are completely clear as all equipment is used at resi camp the week before so we are starting from scratch.
Members are grouped into rides of age/ability which will be under the leadership of an experienced instructor. Camp will run from 10am to 4pm daily. There will be mounted instruction in the morning and afternoon and also some stable management lessons and other activities.
On Thursday afternoon parents are required arrive at camp at 1pm where jobs will be allocated to clear camp away, once this is completed there will be a parade and presentations which parents are invited to watch.
Ponies and members come to camp on a daily basis, unfortunately we do not have any facilities for the ponies to stay over. Children need to bring a picnic lunch each day and we provide cold drinks & biscuits/cakes during the morning and afternoon and a tuck shop is open after lunch. Members will be assigned helpers (an older Burghley PC member) for the duration of camp.
We appreciate that it may be too far/costly for parents to go home during the day but during camp hours parents will not be permitted in the camp fields as this disrupts the children’s learning and camp experience, therefore we ask that parents remain in the lorry parking field only and use that gate if walking up to the house/coffee shop.
During the week will we ask parents to provide cakes, biscuits and buns as in previous years but also this year we will need to provide items for instructors lunches in the same way as parents do for resi camp – this is one way we have kept costs down. Items and days will be organised in advance.
More detailed instructions and equipment lists will be sent out to those attending nearer the time.
The cost of Camp for 2019 is £100 in total, with a deposit of £50 due by June 14th and the balance of £50 due by July 5th.
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.
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.)
