Harness Horse Youth Foundation announces 2017 summer program dates

Westfield, IN—Baseball training camp has started and spring is just around the corner. That can mean only one thing, the Harness Horse Youth Foundation summer camp schedule and applications are now available. Complete details are at http://hhyf.org/schedule-applications.

In a road trip that puts other pro athletes to shame, the HHYF Trottingbreds and their human cohorts will kick off the season June 17-21 with a trip to Harrington Raceway for a five-day overnight camp. In July, HHYF heads to Vernon Downs (July 11-15) and The Downs at Mohegan Sun Pocono (July 18-22) for a pair of overnight camps. After a stop at the Delaware State Fair, Gaitway Farm in New Jersey will host a day camp from July 29-Aug. 2.


HHYF provides a hands-on experience with harness racing horses.

First level five-day camper fee is $150, which includes meals, materials and lodging where applicable.

HHYF will also hold its popular Leadership Camp at Goshen Historic Track July 5-9. That camp, for students who have attended previous HHYF events, is always a home run, filling up quickly. That camp carries an all-inclusive $200 fee.

Camp applications are due May 15, so don’t strike out. Get that application in. Additional dates will be announced as they are added. For questions or more details go to the website or e-mail Executive Director Ellen Taylor at ellen@hhyf.org.

Now in its fifth decade of service to harness racing, the Harness Horse Youth Foundation is a charitable 501(c)3 organization dedicated to providing young people and their families educational opportunities with harness horses, in order to foster the next generation of participants and fans. The Foundation has been making a difference in young people’s lives since 1976, and its programs include interactive learning experiences with these versatile animals, scholarship programs, and creation and distribution of educational materials.
