Our summer day camp program has touched so many lives that attending camp has become a family tradition for folks all over the island. We are also a well known, and well respected long island riding school for both children and adults.
Let horses bring out the best in you every season…
Day camp in the summer
Riding lessons fall through spring
Vacation camps during the school year
and Fall & Winter Horse Shows
Kids get the most out of their summer vacation when they join us for camp. Throughout the school year, they can continue developing their riding skills and love of horses with riding lessons, vacation camps, school shows, and USEF-recognized horse shows.
Thomas School of Horsemanship is the only day camp on long island that offers all traditional camp activities plus a full horseback riding program. Set on 33 beautiful acres there is plenty of room for children ages 3-15 to ride, play and swim. Each day includes a horseback riding lesson with a certified instructor, an instructional swim period with Red Cross–certified lifeguards. Additionally, each camper enjoys a fun free-swim period with pool toys and games, under the constant supervision of pool staff. Other sports, games, and fun camp activities are also worked into the camper’s daily schedule.
We love hiring staff from within our day camp community. Once our kids are old enough, being a group counselor builds on the lessons of responsibility and confidence they've already learned through our camp program. Our intensive staff training also teaches our staff members about conflict mediation and how to foster a supportive environment.
Our summer day camp alumni understand all the wonderful things Thomas School has to offer. So it’s no surprise that so many of our alumni return to enroll their own children for camp and riding lessons. The Thomas School community is truly multi-generational, and our community’s roots span the length of Long Island and beyond.
We’d love to schedule time for you to tour our facility meet our wonderful staff, and learn more about us.
