Sneak in a body brush, a hoof pick, duster and rubber curry comb as if it is a large camp and you are not caring for your own horse I can guarantee that all the decent kit (i.e actually has bristles) will have mysteriously disappeared in 5 seconds flat!
You may also want to take some strong masking/duct tape as there is absolutely nothing worse than finding out that a hole is in your boots early on. The bad thing about discovering holes is that you have to actually step in a puddle first to realise - squelch. At least with tape you can fix it! :)

Take some photos of your home and family so you can look at them if you are feeling homesick! Also you may find a lot of people will get homesick so go and have a chat with some of them. I'm sure both of you will appreciate having someone to talk to!

Do you get to take your own horse?

I know that when I go away (without my horses) I get extremely upset - up to the point where I get nasty (i know its bad) about people who tell me to stop being a wuuss. And I leave.

If you are taking your horse (which im guessing you might be???) then you probably wont get too homesick - I know I don't, I see the horse as a homelink... I agree with Crackrider as well, I take photos of my family with me - it does help.

Didnt they give you a list as to what you should be taking? Like how the teachers used to attach a 'what to bring' list to the itinery on our school camp forms. ? Or are you just enquiring as to what you should be taking in case? Oh well...i think im confusing myself - lol, anyway, Have a RIPPER of a time! Good luck, and I hope you don't need that masking tape :P

Sneak you cell phone if you have one....lol my daughter did that and I felt better that she did.

I hated sleep over camp but my parents that it was best to send me to a horse camp (in quebec) ewwww hated every camp they sent me to there.

Are you taking your own horse with you? Let us know how it's goes....we're looking at sending my daughter to horse camp in canada next year (i'm from canada) since she has a 3 month summer brake.
