Camp Bluebird, a division of 3 Bluebirds Farm, is a track-out and summer 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.
Starting in the Spring of 2020, we will move our current camp programs to our new farm in south Raleigh, where we will continue focusing 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. To give you an idea of the value of our services, currently 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.

Starting in the Spring of 2020, we plan on moving our camp to the farm and expanding our services into a farm-based camp. We will provide children with autism with hands on experience through gardening, animal care and sustainability related activities. We will raise a small number of animals (goats, chickens, horses, alpacas, donkeys, and rabbits) and grow a variety of crops. Weekly themes and activities will be structured around various nature, nutrition, environmental themes with an emphasis on growing our own food and total animal care. We will collect eggs daily and work with our farm manager, learning how to take care of our crops and farm animals every day. We will also enjoy exploring the farm and many other activities around the farm.
