We are the only day camp on Long Island that offers all the traditional camp activities of swimming, sports and arts and includes a full horseback riding program. We are the only summer horseback riding camp that offers bus transportation. Our campers are boys and girls ages 3 -15. We offer both English and Western Riding to meet everyone's needs. Our 33 acres of beautiful open spaces is a great place for horses and children to play. Every activity that we offer at camp, whether it is Red Cross swimming, team sports, tennis, gymnastics, archery, arts or horseback riding, is giving children a chance to grow as a person. Children love trying out new things with the support of their friends and the inspiring guidance of the staff. We are celebrating our 70th anniversary of connecting children with horses. Bill and Fran Thomas founded the Thomas School in 1943. Today it is owned and directed by their daughter, Nancy Thomas.

Camp is special. Camp is even more special when horses are part of the "staff". We watch children learn how well horses respond when you treat them with kindness and respect. We watch children gain new sense of confidence atop a horse and demonstrate a new heightened sense of responsibility through caring for a horse. Join us at Thomas School where children unplug from electronics and connect with nature, connect with horses and create genuine relationships with friends and counselors. Your children may never have had any interaction with horses - the best time we all have is now. Now would be a great time to introduce your child to horses and we are the best place to do that.
