SJ Riding Camp is committed to safety and providing the best program possible. For this reason we have undergone accreditation by the American Camp Association (ACA). This means that our entire operation has been reviewed by ACA on over 300 standards — from staff qualifications and training, to program quality, safety practices, and emergency management. These standards require the most up-to-date, research-based practices in camp operation. The camp is re-accredited every 5 years and our most recent visit was in 2019!
The Certified Horsemanship Association specializes in horsemanship programs. They are a national organization that emphasizes safety in teaching riding and they offer instructor certification clinics and accreditation of sites. We are accredited by CHA and our instructors are CHA certified.
We are licensed by the State of Connecticut Office of Early Childhood and are a member of the Connecticut Camping Association. CCA is a nonprofit organization that promotes good camping practices and works closely with the Department of Public Health and the American Camp Association.
