Donate to SJ’s Campership Fund

While the promise of summer camp is still several months away, SJ riding Camp works throughout the year, and has for over 65 years, to provide quality riding instruction and fun summer experiences where girls make new friends, improve their riding, and reunite with SJ friends from years past.

Camp instills girls with self-reliance, confidence, discipline, creativity, and collaboration. These skills are a necessary factory in our children becoming successful. well-adjusted adults. Every year we see girls grow in ways both large and small as a result of their SJ experience. We believe that every girl deserves a chance to experience SJ.

With this in mind, we are reaching out to encourage you to support our Campership Program (camper scholarships). Because we are an accredited camp of the American Camp Association (ACA), SJ is eligible to build our camper scholarship fund through the 501(c)3 tax-exempt status of the ACA. You can show your direct support of SJ by sending your check to ACA. When writing your check, just be sure to indicate SJ Riding Camp in the memo line so our camp will recieve credit for your donation. You will receive acknowledgement of your donation from ACA for your tax records.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us at, or call 860-872-4742, and read additional information available to campers and their families about our Campership Program.

Your gift today in support of SJ Riding Camp through the ACA Camp Scholarship Fund will help bring more girls, who would otherwise not have the chance to participate, to camp!
