Buckaroo Camp is an exciting week filled with horses, games, crafts and FUN! Buckaroo Camp is a DAY CAMP where campers begin each day at 9:00 am and conclude each day at 4:00 pm. On each Wednesday of Buckaroo Camps many campers will elect to stay at BPS for an overnight camp out. Every Wednesday our Campers will have the option to bring their sleeping bags and other essentials so that they may spend the night the same as our Horse Lovers Campers do! That evening they will participate in a camp cookout- Hot Dogs, Hamburgers, Potato Chips and/or Potato Salad, Baked Beans and S’mores Pizza! Plus a campfire jamboree including songs and stories. The cost of Buckaroo Camp is only $425/week. The Wednesday overnight option is $490/week.
