Charity Horse Rides and More at YMCA Camp Ernst

Love to ride, or want to try it out?  Families are invited to take a relaxing horse ride at YMCA Camp Ernst on Oct. 4 and Nov. 1.  The Charity Horse Rides supports camper scholarships at YMCA Camp Ernst.  Riders ages 9 and older can RSVP for a trail ride that lasts 90 minutes, for just $25!

If you’re looking for an extended weekend of fun, consider signing up for Ranch Days on Oct. 5 or Nov. 2.  From 9:45 a.m. – 3:15 p.m., groups can check out arena riding, trail riding and ground training.  You can even make it an overnight stay for the kids with the Kids Night Out add-on.    Or, enjoy all of the fun of ranch camp packed into one weekend — stay in the heated Lakeview Lodge, enjoy ground lessons and trail rides, and evening programs full of traditional Camp Ernst fun, s’mores making, and more.

Space is limited for these events, be sure to RSVP at 859-586-6181 or visit
