Girl Scouts

If your Girl Scout Troop wants to complete their Horseback Riding Badge - Junior Level, you are in the right place! YMCA Camp Kern has lots of experience taking Girl Scout Troops on trail rides and through their badge work. 

The discounted rate for Girls Scout troops is $25 per participant for the trail ride portion, which includes a 45minute - 1 hour trail ride and all equipment. The badge work portion is an additional $10 per participant and includes 45min - 1 hour of horse science, grooming and the badge.

We recommend making your reservation at least 2 weeks in advance and a 50% deposit is required to book your experience.  


All trail riders must be at least 4 years old and must weigh less than 250lbs. Riders between 4 - 7 years old must have a responsible adult to lead the horse or pony while walking on the trail.
