Riding Equipment

All riding helmets must meet current ASTM standards and be SEI approved. If you already own a helmet please ensure that it complies with standards. There should be a sticker on the inside of the helmet that says SEI certified.

Proper footwear is mandatory for all riders. Hard-soled footwear with a small heel is required. Shoes or boots that have large heels are unacceptable. Paddock boots, available at tack stores are great for riding. Please feel free to contact Kemur if you are unsure about your footwear.

All levels of riders benefit from proper riding attire: half chaps, breeches, boots and gloves. Jeans are suitable for beginner riders. Baggy/slippery pants are not suitable.

Mail

Girls love to receive mail! If you wish to send a letter to your child it is a good idea to mail it a few days prior to camp. You are welcome to leave mail with us to be distributed throughout the week. Campers do not have access to computers/email.

Homesickness

It is a good idea to speak openly about homesickness. It can happen to anyone at any age, knowing this causes less anxiety for your child. Rest assured camper’s family will be contacted so together we can work out the best solution.

Visitors

A one-week camp program does not permit time for visitors. Thank you for understanding.

Accommodations

Loft
The Loft bunkhouse which is above the tack room sleeps 24 girls ages 6-11.(Grade 1-5)

Staff sleep in adjoining room while Working Students and Counselors in Training (CIT’s) sleep amongst the campers.

Derby

The Derby bunkhouse is for girls ages 12-14. (Grade 6-9) 26 in total. Derby’s soaring ceilings, huge windows and pine rafters make the space more feel like summer lodge than a bunkhouse!

Rainy Days

It would be nice if every day was warm and sunny, however we are prepared for the event of rain. Depending on the severity and length of rain we have a number of indoor activities, both large and small group that can be done during rainy periods either in the camper’s bunkhouses, barns or kitchen.

Medical Care

Kemur is just fifteen minutes from Willet Health Centre in Paris and twenty minutes from Cambridge Hospital. Parents are contacted in the event of accident or injury.

Anaphylaxis Emergency Plan
An anaphylaxis emergency plan is an important tool to share with teachers and caregivers. It lists a person’s allergies, the signs and symptoms to watch for, and the emergency procedure to follow.
