 Looking for the perfect summer camp? Blackacre Nature Preserve and Historic Homestead expands almost 300 acres; our woods, hiking trails, ponds, and streams along with our multiple breeds of animals and historic structures provide the perfect environment in which kids can play, imagine, and ignite their love for the outdoors.   At our summer camps we strive to promote the opportunity for children to immerse themselves in nature and grow as independent thinkers. 

Your child can now get a whole summer’s worth of fun and adventure packed into one week.   This year we have two camps.  You can register for one or both for twice the fun.  

June 7-11 Exploration Camp 

Our Exploration Camp will focus on discovering the wonders of nature! All age groups will experience a variety of interactive explorations on the preserve.  They will become scientists investigating our ecosystem including the diversity of animals, plants and microorganisms. They will get up close and personal with a few of the native species that call Kentucky home.  Other activities include: photography, crafts, team building activities and time with our farm animals.  It will be a week filled with fun, adventure and discovery.

June 14-18 Pioneer, Fun on the Farm 

Campers discover Kentucky’s heritage through explorations of Blackacre’s 1790’s pioneer farm and natural areas including ponds, forests and fields. They will engage in nature and pioneer investigations, arts/crafts, and games.  They will time travel back in time and meet a special guest from the 18th century.

Pioneer activities including: loom weaving, butter making, pioneer games and more! We will have daily interactions with our farm animals, nature hikes, gardening explorations, time to explore our barn and historic homestead.

Summer Camps 

Blackacre offers two camp options for your kids this year!  Choose one or both for a summer they will never forget.

You guys must be doing a fantastic job with the day campers.  I just dropped my two girls off for the morning.  They ran off so quickly to meet their groups that I didn’t even get a ‘goodbye ‘ from either of them!
Can’t wait to hear their stories at the end of the day.
