Lea Edwards – Department Head
The ponies and I are looking forward to our 3rd fabulous summer at Camp Vega. I’ve had many years heading equestrian programs at summer camps but so very lucky to have found Camp Vega! It by far is the most beautiful summer home you could ask for. I love teaching young equestrians to ride and sharing my passion for the ponies. What I do when I’m not at camp? I take clients fox hunting, horse showing, and go to the steeplechase races.
I can’t wait to meet my staff and have another GREAT summer at Camp Vega. See you soon!
Hi everyone! My name is Barbara and I’m from Poland. This year will be my 3rd year at Camp Vega and I cannot be more excited about sharing my passion for equestrian with you! I graduated from university in Lublin, Poland receiving my masters in Hippology and Horse Riding. I have my own horses and I work as a horse trainer and also as a horse riding instructor. Equestrian is more than a passion for me- it’s my way of life! I can’t wait to be back!
