Allegheny Riding Camp at Grier Summer is a girls' residential summer program located at the Grier School in Central Pennsylvania. We teach all levels of English hunter-jumper horseback riding. Campers in the 3 week intensive riding program receive 2 riding lessons per day and participate in a daily equine studies activity. Campers who are interested in riding recreationally or who come to camp for less than 3 weeks, are able to have 1 riding lesson per day. All campers also have the opportunities to participate in a variety of other traditional camp activities such as dance, art, drama, swimming, camping, and sports. We offer 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 week sessions. Advanced riders may attend regionally held, rated shows. Grier Summer also hosts show competitions through the summer.
Grier Summer's Allegheny Riding Camp features beautiful facilities in the mountains of Central Pennsylvania, about 30 minutes from Penn State University. We have dormitory housing, three riding paddocks, 2 large indoor riding arenas, stables for up to 65 horses, a 25-yard swimming pool, gymnasium, athletic field, air-conditioned dance studio and 350 acres of forest.
We maintain an excellent staff ratio (1:4 or better) in the dormitory and during lessons. We accommodate less than 100 campers at a time, creating a family-like atmosphere with plenty of individual attention.
The mission of Grier Summer's Allegheny Riding Camp is to teach girls to realize their potential through horsemanship, friendship, and respect for animals.
Grier Summer is the perfect summer home for girls who love horses!
