Just Kidding Around Summer Farm Day Camp | Kids Out and About Reasearch Triangle

Just Kidding Around Summer Farm Day Camp

Spend the summer outside with the farm animals, right next to Falls Lake. Great for kids who love the outdoors, animals, nature, and being active. Low counselor to camper ratio, with highly qualified staff. Children leave each day happy, full of stories, and often tired enough to take a nap in the car ;)

Come join us, the goats, the sheep, the horses, the ducks, the pig, the rabbits, the geese, and our farm dogs for an awesome Summer Day Camp!

Every Week we will be

Playing with and caring for all the farm animals

Exploring the woods near Falls Lake

Getting wading time at the lake

Playing games

Doing arts and crafts, and so much more!!!

Our counselor to camper ratio is at most 1:10 (but often smaller). We also have junior counselors each week of camp.
