PRCA Youth camps

About PRCA Youth Camps

Our mission is to provide a fun, educational and positive rodeo experience. Camp curriculum includes an introduction to roughstock events with an emphasis on safety, fundamentals, chute procedures, and riding equipment. The instructors will provide an overview of injury prevention, fitness, nutrition, as well as an introduction to PRCA business and goal setting. Instructors provide encouragement to participants as they pursue both their rodeo careers and scholastic endeavors.

Important Information:

  • Camps are available for children ages 8+ to attend.
  • PRCA Youth Camps use the rodeo arena or portable chutes.
  • These are ground camps; we do not offer live buck-outs. However, we do sometimes use livestock in our teaching.
