Mt. Gilead Equestrian Program:
Summer camp has always been a huge part of who I am. My name is Kim Yori and I have been going to summer camp ever since I can remember. My absolute favorite activity at camp was always horsemanship. I started riding horses at a Christian girls’ camp when I was extremely young and I fell in love immediately. Riding at a summer camp was a fun and different place to start riding. I had the chance to learn how to not only ride, but also how to care for horses. Camp helped me build knowledge and confidence as a rider, which made me strive to get better. I soon started riding and competing at home and horses have become a regular part of my life. I am now currently the Riding Instructor and barn manager at Mt. Gilead Camp where I first learned to ride. It’s exciting to see how I’ve come full circle in my involvement and experiences with horses. Mt. Gilead Camp offers riding lessons for all skill levels from beginner to advanced. Options range from a daily hour-long lesson to an all day, all week experience that gives girls the feel of owning and caring for their own horse. Any of our various programs will give an unforgettable experience. Mt. Gilead is a Christian girls camp located in the heart of the Poconos in northeastern PA. We have an abundance of activities and adventure that await in our week-long summer camp sessions. For more information visit our website at www.mtgileadcamp.org.
