My son had his birthday here last year, it was an awesome hit. The day was beautiful and farm was clean and all the animals were well cared for and happy. The staff were sweet. I really recommend it!  - K.D 


CAMP PROGRAMS 2017

Storybook's popular day camps are designed so
children spend most of their days outdoors enjoying fresh air, physical fitness, imaginative play and, of course, hands-on experiential learning about animals and nature.

The animals in turn, help us to create an environment that fosters skills like teamwork and communication; awareness; patience; self confidence; problem-solving; compassion and empathy, and respect for self, each other and nature.
In addition to all our animal 'antics', each camp includes plenty of games, arts and crafts, scavenger hunts, hiking, stories, and outdoor exploration.

Class sizes are small to ensure plenty of hands on learning and animal interactions. Our critter camps include just 12 kids per counsellor while horse camps have a max. of six - 10 participants. Volunteers are always on hand to help out! 

CAMP FORMS are at the bottom of this page. They can be emailed to storybookstables1@hotmail.com or mailed to Storybook Adventures, 18457 Rte 2 Brookfield, PE C0A 1Y0. 
A non-refundable deposit holds your child's spot.
