SMA Horseback Riding Teen Camp to attend Greenwich, CT, SummerFare!

Posted by Jud Millar on Tue, Jan 26, 2016

Even in the knee deep snows of winter it is not too early to start planning for the summer.

The Greenwich High School PTA is holding its 27th annual SummerFare Camp Expo from 6 to 8 p.m. this Wednesday in the high school’s student center. SMA Horseback Riding Teen Camp Director Jud Millar will be there!


The snow date is scheduled for the same time on Thursday.

More than 100 exhibitors will present materials and talk with students and their parents about programs that focus on academics, music, outdoor adventure, performing and visual arts, sports, technology and travel abroad, among other topics.

The event is free and open to the public.

“It’s traditionally been a successful summer fair,” SummerFare Co-Chairwoman Mary Childs says. “The student center is such a large venue, and they have lots of parking, so it’s a good location. And there is a great selection of programs.”

PTA members said the event also helps families avoid the rush on sign-ups as spring approaches.

“The good programs fill up quickly because there is a lot of demand,” Childs said.


The fair represents one of the largest summer expos in the area with more than 700 people attending last year, mostly from Greenwich and other communities in Fairfield County and Westchester County, N.Y.

SummerFare represents one of the PTA’s major fundraising initiatives with vendors paying a fee to participate.

Stone Mountain Adventures is a summer camp for teenagers located in central PA offering creative arts, community service, outdoor adventure activities, water sports and traditional sports. For teens who are passionate about Horseback Riding we have a specialized program called Horsemasters.  


The SMA Teen Summer Camp Horsemasters Program attracts the more serious equestrian, however, it is open to beginner through advanced riders. Lessons are offered each morning while barn activities or trail rides are available in the afternoons. Additional opportunities include clinics, vaulting, field trips, and being a part of the stable management team to help feed and care for the horses. With several qualified instructors, beginning riders develop skills and confidence while advanced riders are challenged on the flat, over fences on the trails, or on a lunge line. Balanced seat is taught to all riders in order to develop a strong, effective seat doing flat work. The Horsemaster riders may then focus on dressage, jumping or cross-country. This is a very personalized, fun program!
