Brownies on a Bench


A new snack treat? No! Just some girls hanging out, having fun and riding horses at DuBois Center. Throughout the year dozens of scout troops take to the trails. Thanks, Girl Scout Troop #8843, for a great ride and those winning smiles!

Beginning again next March, your youth, adult or family group can too. Weekend horseback rides can be scheduled for groups of 6 or more; mid-week rides on school holidays can also be scheduled. One hour sessions, which include an orientation in the arena, cost $22 per person for day groups. A minimum of three weeks advance notice is required. For more information contact DuBois Center at or 618-787-2202.

Register for Horse Camp

Horse 1

Git along… or you might miss out! Horse Camps are filling quickly, but there are still great options available. Horse campers still enjoy popular camp activities like 9-Sqaure and archery, but they also spend significantly more time around the barn and out on the trails!

Horse 2Some mornings, it’s up and at ‘em long before chow time – the horses need to be fed and groomed before breakfast. Some evenings, it’s untacking, feeding and barn chores before evening games. As long as the weather allows, horse campers have the option to ride each day! Depending on the skill level and interests of the group, horse times may include cantering, riding bareback, playing games on horseback in the arena or educational “horse sense” sessions.


For more information, check out the 2017 camp brochure or contact DuBois Center at or 618-787-2202 to have one sent to you. Ready to register? You can register online today!
