Summer Camp at Lucky Ladd Farms
If your kids love animals and nature, summer camp at Lucky Ladd Farms is the ideal summer activity where they learn and play through caring for farm animals, gardening, exploring the wilderness and doing nature-themed crafts.
Does your child have a budding interest in animals, farming or nature? They’ll discover the wonder and magic of the natural outdoor world at Lucky Ladd Farms Summer Camp where kids get to interact with farm animals and explore the world around them. Campers ages 5-10 will enjoy many fun and educational activities during camp days like learning about growing plants, how to care for farm animals, and the earth around them.
Their FARMtastic week to remember is filled fun recreational games, water play (splash pad, bubble blast, inflatable water slides), crafts, wilderness exploration, pioneer lessons (like butter making and rope making), archery, tomato picking, riding ponies, playing on the playground and much more!
The highlight of the week is our special closing ceremony on Friday afternoon with refreshments where parents will have a chance to meet and learn about their child’s baby farm animal. Lucky Ladd Farms is located halfway between Franklin and Murfreesboro, only minutes from I840.
