The equestrian program offers: Western Riding, English Riding, Mule and Pony Driving, Vaulting (Gymnastics on horseback) and Packing.

FPC has a well-established Ropes Challenge Course that meets the highest standard of challenge course technology. The Challenge program offers numerous high and low elements, plus a 32’ climbing wall. The Climbing program gives campers opportunities to rock climb and rappel in the Prescott area. While these programs are for campers 10 years old and up, the Junior Facilitators program is specially designed for our oldest campers who have been through those programs and want to take the next step. For our younger campers we have the Junior Adventure and Climbing program that samples both ropes course and off-course climbing. Supervision is provided by our experienced Challenge Director and his highly trained staff. These are some of our most popular and most closely supervised programs. We are proud of our safety record of over 25 years without a serious incident! We also offer hiking programs for those campers choosing to enjoy an adventure in the forest without leaving the ground.
