Horse Farm Camp 2017 **This is our biggest year but we still have some openings for Horse Farm Camp!
Horse Farm Camp has been a huge success the last seven years! We are looking forward to more horse farm adventures in 2017! We have many campers who come more than 1 week per summer and year after year.
Horse Farm Camp at Whispering Hope Farm.com LLC is a drop off day camp for your children.
We are in Gastonia, an easy drive from all around Charlotte, Greenville, SC or Hickory.
Whispering Hope Farm.com LLC is an educational farm interaction program. We specialize in being hands on with all our animals - 3 horses, bunnies, several breeds of chickens, ducks, sheep and baby lambs, mini silky fainting goats, mini potbelly pigs and piglets, great pyrenees puppies, and our dairy cow – Lil Red. Spend time with all the animals and learn about them – plus go horseback riding every day! We may not get to all the activities due to time. **Campers always make their own loaf of our famous homemade bread and butter every year at Horse Farm Camp BUT due to allergies we send the food home with the children and they do not eat it here. Due to liability the campers are only to eat and drink what they bring with them. **
Comments: Catherine Ryan... Willa Anne loved farm camp last week. She learned so much as well as being "toughened up" a bit. She no longer freaks out if there is a frog in the pool but insists on getting to hold it and learn about its joints and feet. Never thought I'd see that!
Whispering Hope Farm Thank you so much for the comment. It made us smile. This is why we work so hard and do what we do to have an educational and interactive learning farm.
Thank you for the fun week you gave my daughter Ava! She really, really enjoyed it. Everyday she gave me updates on all the animals, and she loved riding the horses. So cute!
And that bread ... so delicious!! She gave me 1 bite, and then ate all the rest by the time we got back to Charlotte!! **By any chance can you share the recipe? **
We may see you again in August ... trying to work out our schedule.
Kathleen Pernak Zwally... Fantastic experience! Highly recommend!
