4-H Light Horse Members, it’s time for horse camp again! Attached is your registration form for the 2017 three-day summer camp. This is your opportunity to bring your horse to Vermilion and work on selected sessions, such as Equine Photography, Jumping, Trail Class, and Drill Team. There will be no costume parade this year, instead we will be doing things like a movie night & swimming.


There are 70 spaces available for horse camp, due to decreasing numbers we will open up to other regions, if the numbers are not met by the early bird deadline. Box stalls will be assigned on a first paid basis. We will try our best to have club members stalled together so that wheel barrows, brooms, etc, can be shared more conveniently. There will be a cleaning fee of $20.00/stall which will be refunded once your stall is cleaned and inspected by a committee member after closing ceremonies. Please attach a separate cheque payable to NE Regional 4-H Council.

Bedding (shavings) information will be updated by the beginning of August.

Camping facilities are also available on a first paid basis. Electrical plug-ins are available for $15/unit/night for the camp (Payable to Vermilion Ag Society). Electrical stalls are limited and must be paid with registration (showers included.) Camping stalls will be assigned.

During the camp, there will be prizes for barn/stall cleanliness and a club prize for best decorated barn/stall area (related camp theme). Members will be judged on how well they work together to keep their individual stalls and barn area clean. As well as how well you Showcase 4-H and be a positive role model and help out everyone!

Please note that this is not a supervised camp! A parent/guardian MUST accompany members. If you are interested in attending horse camp this year please complete the attached application form and mail it, along with your registration fee, camping fee (separate cheque), and stall cleaning (separate cheque) to Northeast Regional 4-H Council BEFORE July 15, 2017, note the price difference for Early Bird deadline. Both members and parents/guardian must sign application form.

For all NE Regional programs, if a cancellation is two weeks prior to the event, a $20.00 camp cancellation fee will be kept. Should a member cancel after this time period, there will be NO REFUND. *Exceptions to this rule may be made in case of medical/family emergencies provided that some type of formal proof (I.e.
