Join us this summer for a one-of-a-kind camp experience! Belle Vie Farm is located just 5 minutes from downtown Chapel Hill and Carrboro, and just 10 minutes from Briar Chapel! With over 100 PlayShops for campers to explore, there is always time for "one more activity!"
Belle Vie Farm Summer Camp takes place on 34 acres of farm and forest just 5 minutes from downtown Carrboro. Our 1800 square foot facility (made from shipping containers!) has a full kitchen, Light Studio, community space (the Piazza!) and separate workshop spaces. Our farm also houses an Art Studio and MakerSpace, 25 acres of forest to explore, a half-acre pond filled with frogs, turtles and dragonfly nymphs, multiple micro-streams for romping through, an outdoor water play area complete with ramps and waterfalls, a space for growing microgreens, multiple garden areas and more!
Our animals include donkeys, pygora and fainting goats, rabbits, laying hens and playing Silkie chickens!
During Summer Camp 2022, our staff will partly be teachers from our year-long school program and partly summer counselors.
