Welcome to Spence’s Farm for Kids

Summer Camps now Enrolling

In Chapel Hill, NC

“My three girls had a fabulous experience at the farm and their first time riding horses. They started with learning to gain trust of feeding chickens by hand and then moved to the horses and groomed them. Spence did a great job teaching them and they were able to independently ride with confidence.”

Our Summer Camps run all summer in Chapel Hill, NC
June 12 – August 25 

  • At Spence’s farm we offer a year round selection of healthy activities for your child. Spence’s Farm is a great place to play in a 25 acre outdoor environment with permanent trails to access 2000 acres of Duke Forest. That allows for lots room for exploration and learning about horses, farm animals, gardening, wilderness, and Nature!
  • We have served over 15,000 children in our After School which has 20 children each day coming from schools all over Chapel Hill, Hillsborough and Carrboro
  • Our Summer Camps have 50-100 children weekly the whole summer.
  • Over 35,000 people have attended birthday parties here and over 18,000 people have attended the annual Saturday before Halloween, Harvest Festival over the past 30 years.
  • At Spence’s Farm focus on your kids uniqueness and greatness, but they don’t always feel that. We empower children, by challenging them to face the natural fears that come up, in Nature, and with animals.  They are supported in facing these fears with our Mentors so that they come away with higher self-esteem, independence and a loving connection with the other kids, with animals and nature.  Animals and Nature are our greatest assets in helping children learn important life lessons.
