Spence's Farm After School Programs

For many years, Spence's Farm offers very popular After School programs,
serving most schools within Chapel Hill, Carrboro, Durham, & Orange County.
The farm vans pick up students at their school & drop off at the Farm.
Some school buses will drop students off at Spence's Farm at parents' request.

The Spence's Farm After School program is designed to give children the opportunity to decompress, complete their homework, and learn-by-doing. The beautiful, open farm environment helps children feel centered, calm, and happy. They are well-supervised, free to move around outdoors or in, help out in the barn, or just read a book!Spence's Farm children with wheelbarrow
After-School on the Farm is centered in the main farmhouse and in our extensive out-buildings and grounds. Children eat snacks that they bring from home when they arrive at the farm each day and sometimes they eat items from our organic garden. They can also receive help and supervision with homework if needed. From 4pm to 5:30pm each day they can choose which focused activity they wish to do (i.e. work in garden, play in the yard, do crafts, cook from the garden, hike, work with the animals, and more!
