I've fox hunted on Kemur grounds! I don't think it has an indoor arena though, so if it rains you might not be riding that day. The room where you stay is really cute too. If you go to Kemur, bring a sweater, as the evenings can be cool up here.

I haven't looked at any of the links (yet) but I think you would benefit more from riding a variety of horses. You learn how to adjust your riding more then just being on one horse the whole time.

I'm going to bump this up a bit...
I think that deciding between camp 1 and 3 really comes down to what exactly do you out want out of camp? Camp 1 seems to be geared around horses, whereas camp 3 is mostly horses, but there are a lot of other factors thrown in (its overnight, it can't be 100% solely about horses 100% of the time-that would get kind of old, fast). You would certainly create friendships at Kemur, but at the end of the week, how many of the new friends are going to live close enough to you that you keep the friendship? Cedar creek seems to be more local (even if it is a bit of a distance- correct me if I'm wrong, but it seems that more people would travel a greater distance for Kemur than they would for Cedar Creek) so you might have a better chance of friendships lasting beyond camp week.

Oh, and you may need to take weather into consideration... is there likely to be rain- I think I saw an indoor arena mentioned in passing on Kemur's website, and I know that Cedar Creek mentioned that they had one in the event of rain. Also, Kemur is an all girls camp, so you may want to consider the added possibility of drama.

I asked my friend who goes to cedar Creek every year and she told me everything they get to do. I compared it to what my friend who went to Kemur did (they are both at the same level, and I am at the same level as them) and Cedar Creek seemed to have more options. If you want to here the options, pm me.
