You won’t be “FROZEN” if you bring blankets and lawnchairs

to watch the movie “Frozen” under the night stars at 

Camp Horsin' Around!

What is “Camp Horsin’ Around?”  Come to our  

Family Day Open House 

–and see what we are all about… 


Hint – We are NOT an Equine Camp.   The ‘Horsin' Around’ refers to goofing off and having fun…  In fact our only horse is Champ,  

a Lolapaloosa standing at the top of the hill to greet you when you arrive.    

So bring your family and friends and ‘Horse Around’ with us…and then enjoy  watching “FROZEN” under the stars. 

 Gates open at 4:00 pm – the movie starts at dusk (about 7pm)

Lots of fun activities are planned:  

  • Hayrides
  • Bounce House
  • A walk across the swinging bridge…you can play in the creek but bring some extra, dry clothes!
  • Basketball Court
  • Hula Hoops
  • Corn Hole
  • Horse Shoes
  • Hiking Trails
  • Tours
  • Grilled Hotdogs
  • S’Mores and More
  •  FISHING:      We have an extremely well stocked pond of catch and release fish – so feel free to bringyour fishing gear and fish away.  WARNING:  there is a large 400 pound fish in our pond.  We’ll be taking ballots to name it! 
  • BOATING:    If you wear a life jacket you are welcome to pedal away in a pedal boat
  • Free Popcorn for the Movie

 All children MUST be accompanied by an Adult.

Everything is FREE. Admission is to bring a great horsin' around attitude and if you can, an item from our needs list! 

Any questions, feel free to contact:

The Centre College Football Team spent several hours at the camp site preparing for Campers. The team did many chores such as cleaning the main pavilion, painting the split rail fence, cleaning the cabins, painting the porches and moving furniture.

All of us at Camp Horsin' Around appreciate their help. All is ready for the campers that arrive on June 5th.

 We Remember the Life and Legacy of Mr. Paul Newman

It was Mr. Paul Newman who inspired us to build Camp Horsin' Around, and whose foundation; Newman's Own, supports us financially. 

Our inspiration is best summed up in a quote from Mr. Newman "...I wanted, I think, to acknowledge luck; the chance of it, the benevolence of it in my life, and the brutality of it in the lives of others, made especially savage for children because they may not be allowed the good fortune of a lifetime to correct it."
