Only 11 openings remain for the upcoming Wranglers of the Wild West Youth Camp Jan. 2-4, sponsored by the Pearland Parks and Recreation Department.
The camp meets from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. for the three days and those attending should be ages 7-14. The camp is coed.
Campers will explore the fun of the frontier and learn about lariat braiding, roping and archery.
They will also play western themed games and make authentic western crafts.
On their final day, campers will travel to the Bay Area Equestrian Center for a day of horseback riding. At BAEC, they will learn the basics of grooming, safety on and around horses and the foundations of riding.
Attire for the camp is long pant jeans, boots with a heel and a helmet which can be provided if needed on the final day of class.
The Bay Area Equestrian Center barn on Broadway (FM 518) is uniquely designed for riders to discover their love of horses without having to own a horse. Their goal is to build confident individuals by positively affecting their lives.
Supervisor for the camp is Abbey Stripling with BAEC staff Cathi Bray and Katia Arnold.
Cost for the three day camp is $187.50.
