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 20 acre outdoor environment with a large vegetable garden, 15+ horses, many chickens and bunnies, and more opportunities to learn!

  • We have served over 15,000 children in our After School which has 30 children each day coming from schools all over Chapel Hill and Carrboro.

  • Our Summer Camps have 50-100 children weekly the whole summer.

  • Over 40,000 people have attended birthday parties here and over 20,000 people have attended the annual Saturday before Halloween, Harvest Festival over the past 30 years.

  • At Spence’s Farm, we focus on your kids' uniqueness and greatness. 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.
