Earn 3 High School credits on horseback!

Camp Chief Hector YMCA and Canadian Rockies Public Schools are pleased to announce the second year of EQUINE LEADERSHIP 15; a three-credit course.

This exciting course combines leadership with horsemanship. Students will earn three Alberta High School credits for completing this experiential education program. Equine Leadership 15 is an engaging and dynamic opportunity for students to learn more about themselves, equine practices, the Alberta landscape and ecology, and local history through applied horsemanship and riding, leadership skill development, and team building. 

This four day program provides students with practical learning opportunities in horsemanship and riding skills, horse behaviour and herd dynamics, equine care practices, safety awareness and hazard mitigation, ethics and ecological impact of Leave No Trace, and the historical significance of horses in the Canadian Rocky Mountains.

All learning activities and after-learning activity time are supervised by male and female YMCA staff and teachers. 

Learning activities are scheduled between 7:00am and 9:30pm with lights-out at 10:30 pm. Fees include shared, dormitory-style accommodations, instruction and meals. Participant families are responsible for transportation to and from Camp Chief Hector YMCA.
