You don’t need to head west of the Mississippi to treat your little cowpokes to some rollicking, Western-style fun. Just cross the Hudson and head west to the Frost Valley YMCA in the Catskills. Among the many options there is a rodeo, complete with barrel races, put on by the equestrian staff. Riding lessons and trail rides are also available, as are mountain boarding and fly-fishing. Lodging includes everything from an 11-room castle to yurts, platform tents and cushy lodge rooms. Meals have gluten-free, dairy-free and vegan options, and the whole campus is tree nut– and peanut-free. Camp runs Aug 24–29, with the option to extend into Labor Day weekend. $253–$673 per person; kids ages 4-17 $176–$522; kids under 4 free.
