Camp Bluebird, a division of 3 Bluebirds Farm, is a track-out and summer farm camp program for children with autism, grades K-8. We have a dedicated, creative and professional staff working in a safe
and stimulating environment for children.
We are now holding our camp programs at our new farm in Raleigh, where we are continuing to focus on three primary objectives in a farm-based environment:
Social skills, play skills, and life skills.

We truly aim to keep our tuition as low as possible, and we now have a waitlist consisting of many families who are in great need of our full sessions, therefore partial sessions are not an option at this time. Each session is valued at roughly $80.00 a day (or $12.30 an hour), and in return your child will receive loving care in a peaceful and safe setting that will never go below a 1:3 trained staff to child ratio, with several additional volunteers and interns. Furthermore, all of us understand autism across the entire spectrum. Please call us with any questions.
Hours of operation

Monday — Friday
We provide children with autism a hands- on experience through gardening, animal care and sustainability related activities. We are currently tending to chickens, rabbits, cats, maremma sheepdogs, and horses, along with a variety of vegetable gardens. We plan to add alpacas and donkeys in the near future. Weekly themes and activities are structured around various nature, nutrition, environmental themes with an emphasis on growing our own food and total animal care. We collect eggs daily and learn how to take care of our crops and farm animals every day. We also enjoy exploring the farm and many other activities around the farm.
