YMCA Camp Cullen is the summer home away from home for over 1500 campers and dozens of camp counselors! We are looking for passionate horse-loving counselors to join our camp family and help us impact the lives of our campers with programs that build confidence, impart life skills, enrich values, and teach campers how to build and deepen relationships with others. Summer wranglers are responsible for all aspects of equine care and the delivery of high quality horsemanship programs for summer campers. Camp Cullen's horsemanship program is the proud home of a brand-new equestrian center including 30,000 square feet of arena space (part of it covered), an air conditioned tack room, feed room, office, bathrooms, and a classroom in the breezeway with a projector screen! Many of our campers are beginner riders who ride two times during their week of camp and work through our curriculum where they earn levels as they advance in their riding skills and knowledge of horsemanship. They mainly ride western and work in the arena, but also enjoy over 200 acres of trails after demonstrating basic skills. Our horsemanship specialty track program provides campers with the chance to ride every day they are at camp with a small class of other riders of similar skill level and learn more in-depth material as they practice their English or western riding skills through games, patterns, and trail riding; try new disciplines; and learn groundwork and horsemanship theory. Wranglers will teach classes in pairs according to skill level and experience. Wranglers will gain experience in horse health care, feeding and herd management, lesson planning, horse training and behavior, and coaching riders of different skill levels and ages in various disciplines. Housing and meals are provided.
